Firefox Launches Cub Cam

Posted By on Fri, Dec 3, 2010 at 12:26 PM


Mozilla, the maker of the Internet browser Firefox, is pushing the fourth iteration of their software—armed with real life "firefoxes".

Working with the Knoxville Zoo, Mozilla has adopted two red pandas, dubbed adorably "Cub No. 1" and "Cub No. 2", and are broadcasting their lives 24/7. Alongside the video feed comes adorable footage of the two romping, and a forum to drop suggestions to name the loveable critters.

Firefox has grown steadily in market share over the once-indomitable Microsoft Internet Explorer. Recently, Google's Chrome browser has entered the market, with Firefox and Chrome (and Apple's Safari) chipping away at the IE hegemony. Microsoft Internet Explorer comes pre-installed on all Windows machines. Creative marketing, such as the panda webcam, help push the strictly online companies' products.

Just like with Puppy Cam, which broadcast the lives of a litter of shiba inu puppies, see how long you can last before making "Firefox Live" your homepage.

Watch the firefoxes here. Mozilla says it's best to catch them at 9 a.m., noon and 4 p.m. EST, right after feeding time.
