Internet Explorer 8 Fans Take a Cue from Spread Firefox

Written by Amit Agarwal on Jan 27, 2009

When the Mozilla foundation was ready to release the first version of Firefox software in 2004, their marketing team launched a community site at SpreadFirefox.com to spread buzz about the new browser. The campaign was a hit so much so that Mozilla used the same Spread Firefox site again to set a new world record when Firefox 3 was launched in mid-2008.

Taking a cue from the success of Spread Firefox, Microsoft MVPs in India have launched a new site at spreadie8.com to spread awareness about the new Internet Explorer 8 browser that is much faster and feature rich than any of the previous versions of IE.

A similar site exists at spreadchrome.com for the Google Chrome browser but it is not an official and is currently running a Google Custom search powered site.
