I’m sure that many of you use Firefox regularly. You may have typed about:config into your browser location bar to manage your internal browser settings.Another useful variation of this is about:cache which will show the browser cache and allow you to view individual items in the cache.Today I stumbled across another one! If you type about:mozilla into the location bar, you get presented with a passage from the “Book of Mozilla” (a play on a religious text):

And so at last the beast fell and the unbelievers rejoiced.But all was not lost, for from the ash rose a great bird.The bird gazed down upon the unbelievers and cast fireand thunder upon them. For the beast had beenreborn with its strength renewed, and thefollowers of Mammon cowered in horror.from The Book of Mozilla, 7:15

The thing I like about programming is that you can sometimes have fun doing this kind of thing. The reference above refers to the name change from Phoenix (the name of the original 2002 project) to Firefox – and reassures it’s followers that the project lives on.Now… time to have some fun…
