Mozilla to Users: Help Us and Help Others

The Mozilla Foundation is once again calling on its community to lend a helping hand. But while this is not the first time we’ve seen Mozilla call on you to help test its software by participating in a Friday test day, this time Mozilla is also calling on you to help the less fortunate. Here is what I am talking about: to help Mozilla, you are asked to take part in its first website testing project; to help others, Mozilla is asking you to take part in its service week.

This Friday, on the 19th of June, Mozilla will hold a test day as part of its Website Testing project. The purpose of this project is to increase Firefox’s stability and functionality by testing major websites all over the world and determining whether the browser can parse different kinds of sites and apps.

Mozilla QA, Aakash Desai, comments: I'm here to inform you that the we're going to be holding our FIRST WEBSITE TESTING PROJECT test event of 2009 this Friday, 6/19, from 7AM to 5pm PDT! It'll be a day completely devoted to exploring/testing/playing the new project and learning about what they do and how they do it! To get started, just head over to the great project page on QMO that has any and all info that you'll ever need about it. Thanks in advance to everyone that's able to make it as it's going to be a lot of fun!”

Moving on, The Mozilla Foundation has launched its first ever Mozilla Service Week which will take place from the 14th until the 21st of September, 2009. During this week you are all asked to use the web to better your community. Mozilla’s Mary Colvig explains: “We’re looking for people who want to share, give, engage, create, and collaborate by offering their time and talent to local public benefit organizations, non-profits and people who need their help. Our goal is to help empower people to:
- Teach senior citizens how to use the Web.
- Show a non-profit how to use social networking to grow its base of supporters.
- Install a wireless network at a school.
- Create Web how-to materials for a library’s computer cluster.
- Refurbish hardware for a local computer center.
- Help a non-profit update its website or database.
- And, more!”

If you thing you’ve got what it takes, visit the official Mozilla Service Week web page here and volunteer. If you represent an organization, visit the same web page and list your organization’s needs.
