Microsoft sends out its love for Mozilla, as the IE team delivers a congratulatory cupcake for the Firefox 5 release.

Microsoft delivered a congratulatory cupcake for Mozilla, following the successful release of Firefox 5. However, this is not the first time that Microsoft sent Mozilla a tasty congratulatory treat.

Back in 2008, the Internet Explorer team sent a cake with the launch of Firefox 3. Then a smaller cake came last March when Mozilla unleashed Firefox 4. This time, Microsoft sent our their love for Mozilla with a cupcake, and a “Congratulations on shipping” note at the flap of the box.

So what’s the point of Microsoft sending sweets to Mozilla if they’re not laced with poison? It’s just a friendly competition. Although IE and Mozilla are competing Internet browsers, Microsoft is still the winner — since the latter allows Windows-based users to shop for online Microsoft products, watch videos with Microsoft ads, and even use Bing.

Basically, the cupcake is Microsoft’s way of reminding Mozilla that no matter how successful they are now, Internet Explorer is just lurking in the shadows. Ready to strike any moment.

The numbers average over 27 downloads per second or 270 downloads every 10 seconds. The figure is double the 1 million downloads IE9 Beta received and four times more than that of the IE9 RC within the same time frame.

IE9, Coming this March?

Written on March 02, 2011 by Adam Eve

Microsoft's IE9 is making another huge buzz, as reports are telling that the ninth iteration of the web browser will come on March 24 (or is it 14?).

A rogue tweet from MSDN India’s official Twitter account has apparently stated the IE9’s release date. Though it’s been deleted since, there are reports saying that MSDN India tweeted the release of IE9 will be in time for the Tech.Ed 2011. Set to take place in Bangalore, India on March 23 – 25, the rumors seems likely. Internet Explorer and Windows Live General Manager, Brian Hall, is set to give a keynote speech on March 24 at the said event.

However, another rumor suggests that people need not to wait until March 24. Another report says that Microsoft will launch the IE9 at the SWSX Conference on March 14. Equally, Microsoft has an IE party on that same date. But the official occasion is said to “Celebrate the Beauty of the Web”. Nevertheless, both rumors are still hearsay.

As soon as the official announcement is out, Gadg will let you know.
