Yahoo Phililippines Supports Mozilla Firefox

My regular browsing of the web includes a drop at Yahoo Philippines to check out local news, to my surprise I saw a recommendation at the top of the page to upgrade the browser to the latest version of Mozilla Firefox 4. Yahoo Philippines sponsored our Firefox 4 Launch.

A big help to our local marketing efforts in the Philippines in spreading the mission of Mozilla Firefox. I believe in the open web and the benefit of the public for a better web experience.
