The browser wars just went intergalactic. While humans fight it out between Internet Explorer and Firefox, it seems that some Aliens have already made their decision… or maybe it was just a bunch of college kids. This past weekend, the Oregon State Linux Users Group descended on a field in Oregon to create a 45,000+ square foot crop circle of Firefox.
Why did they make a crop circle? To celebrate 50 million Firefox downloads, they took back the sidewalk with an enormous painting on their campus quad. At 100 million, they took back the sky with a huge Firefox weather balloon. How do you beat that? Well, a 45,000+ square foot crop circle might do it.
So does the sudden appearance of a Firefox crop circle really imply which browser extraterrestrials prefer? Who knows but the photos taken from several planes and helicopters are incredible. To learn more on how they made this crop circle, check out this page on the Oregon State website.
