    Be a part of Firefox's community marketing project. [​IMG]
    Blake, one of the members of the Firefox development team, posted this over at the mozillaZine forums.

    So go ahead and get your votes/reviews in. [​IMG]

    Sad part is something like this gives "credit" to people that perhaps the reviews are fake :(

    Doesn't Download.com allow you to vote for and review any app only once based on your login details? I had to register before I could vote, so I thought they don't allow more than one vote by the same registered user.

    Besides, there's nothing wrong with having many reviews posted in a short time frame. Blake clearly stated in his post that he is just prompting people to vote, rather than telling them to vote for/against it, so the reviews aren't going to be biased. It's just that more Firefox users who previously ignored the ratings section are now voting for it, whether their experience with the browser was good or bad. For example, Unwonted posted a negative review. Nothing wrong with that either...that was just his experience with it.

    Yeah you have to register but I'm still sure people spam the reviews :p Also registering keeps many from voting :(

    -edit- I say that 2nd comment after finding I had to register to vote for Mozilla as it would be nice to see it get higher numbers then Firefox. :D

    I was just being overly harsh with it. I'm a die hard MyIE fan :eek: ...Firefox is definitely a good browser, it's just not what i want. I hope people take my review with a spoonful of salt...:D

    Well yeah...giving it a 1/5 for every category was rather silly.
    But hey...when it's 1 in 500, it hardly makes a difference. [​IMG]

    Absolutely. It's got very high marks right now, and well deserved.
