Default Microsoft buys Firefox - releases Firefox 7

MIcrosoft has already taken down this site, but you can still get to it by googleing msfirefox, and going to the cached page.

I highly suspect the reason the site was taken down is that it was a fake. Look at the disclaimer on the bottom.

Actually, just read the whole thing. Fake as hell!!!

If it had been true,it would have been the death of the superior browser

Would this have been a major selling point?????

MS Firefox 2007 delivers a dramatic boost in the download speeds of online pornography. By utilising a proprietary dynamic algorithm - anything that remotely resembles a tit or a boob will download up to 10 times faster. Fun at the speed of light!

Looks like some hackers had some fun with at Microsofts expense (as usual) lol

Google is awesome!! Heres the site before it was removed. Reading some of the features of MSFF, you can definately tell its a fake.
