Raises Money for Firefox

Posted on January 16, 2006

ZDNet reports that Loopia, a Swedish web hosting company, and Loopia's founder Sam Nurmi, have launched a website called HelpFirefox in a bid to raise money for the Firefox web browser. The campaign was so wildly successful that the website for the campaign had to be temporarily shut down. The website is based on the MillionDollarHomepage's pixel advertising concept. Apparently, it is working because a message on HelpFirefox reads:

The first 24 hours of this site has been a true success, with more than 13 800 pixels being sold.

We have to take down the site for now but we hope to be back as soon as possible.

ZDNet says the site crashed from heavy traffic.

Update: 7-30-14: The HelpFirefox site is no longer available and the link has been removed.
