Drinks and Downloads: StomperNet Celebrates Firefox 3 Release with Free Software Release & Happy Hour

Share Article

StomperNet invites all Atlanta tech-heads, Firefox fans and wannabe record-breakers to the Park Tavern tonight.

If you upgrade it, they will come.

StomperNet, the premier online marketing training organization, has not one but TWO upgrades to celebrate. And they want all Atlantan online "browsers" to join them.

StomperNet has just released their new cool ranking tool, StomperNet Ranker, which works within Firefox. Ranker monitors users' search engine rankings, and provides a great interface which allows users easily to compare their rankings between various search engines.

Since Ranker is free to download and sits in the Firefox browser, what better time to release it than the same day another free download is trying to make history? Firefox is attempting to set a Guinness world record for downloads in one day with the release of its version 3.0.

The Mozilla foundation has been working on Firefox, an alternate browser to Microsoft's Internet Explorer, for almost a decade. According to Mozilla's "Spread Firefox" website, millions of international Firefox users are ready to push the "Install now!" button.

In conjunction with both of these releases, StomperNet and Appcelerator, a top local Atlanta Rich Internet Application software tool developer, are co-sponsoring a get-together at Park Tavern. Starting at 7 and ending at 9, it's sure to be a uniquely techno-fun affair.

Host of the Park Tavern festivities is StomperNet's Chief Scientist Andy Edmonds. Edmonds organized the 2001 Firefox 1.0 browser release party in Boston and is now spearheading the June 17th effort for StomperNet.

Edmonds said "This release represents another great example of how we 'Move the Free Line'. We do this to educate our marketplace about Search Engine rankings, and it's awesome to do this using the open source Firefox framework."
