Browsing Happy with WordPress

Posted June 1, 2005 by Matt Mullenweg. Filed under Meta.

You can get the full details from the Web Standards Project press release, but to make a long story short WordPress.org will be taking Browse Happy under its wing by continuing hosting the site and keeping it current with the latest trends and information.

Browse Happy is a site dedicated to educating people about browser alternatives that will give them a better online experience. We’ve promoted Firefox for a long time within our administration interface, this will allow us to expand our promotion to cover other excellent browsers as well. If you have any ideas for the site or would like to share your story, please let us know through the Browse Happy contact and submission form.

  23. [...] I checked out Browse Happy after reading Matt’s blog noting WordPress would be maintaining the site. Browse Happy wants you to choose a Web browser other than Internet Explorer. If that’s what you want to do, go ahead there are good alternatives. If you’d rather keep IE, you should. However, there are risks. Fortunately, most of those risks can be mitigated with a little knowledge and common sense. To justify my rant (and thanks to Browse Happy for getting me started), I’m going to give you some advice along the way. [...]
