On the 8th of May, 2014, I attended the launch party of Mozilla Firefox in Bahasa Malaysia. It was held at G Tower, Jalan Tun Razak.
Mozilla Firefox is a popular web browser known for its speed and security. Volunteers around the world contributes to the improvement of Firefox, as well as making it available free of charge to all users.
The project to translate Firefox into Bahasa Malaysia has been ongoing for two years. For that to happen, volunteers translated 88,000 string of words from English into Bahasa Malaysia! I must commend the dedication and hard work of these generous people to bring Firefox accessible to people speaking Bahasa Malaysia.
#FirefoxKita launch party also commemorates the release of Firefox version 29. This installment of Firefox features a revamped user interface, as well as two features for browsing privacy: "Do Not Track" and private browsing. "Do Not Track" disables tracking of your browsing activity by online advertisers; while private browsing lets you browse web page without leaving cookies. The private browsing feature is useful if you need to go online shopping or banking.
