Blackbird: A Firefox-based browser for black people

Unread post by Pnume » 2012-06-16, 06:01

I kid you not, there's actually a Firefox-based browser for black people:

Blackbird is an Internet browser developed for the African American community. The Blackbird browser not only provides easy access to Web 2.0 features and services, but a way to provide more visibility and access to African American content.

What are your thoughts on this? :lol:

I think this has inspired me to create a Firefox-based browser for Canadians -- a browser that will no doubt compete with Pale Moon! ;)

One of the many "take Firefox, rebrand it, slap your favorite/affiliated bookmarks in it by default, and market it"

Well if we remember the history of Netscape, they did that as well: After the death of Netscape someone made "Flock" for have the social networks integrated in the browser. But the idea was brought by Zinga and just disappeared. :D

If you're interested, there's also a browser for white Americans.

I'm white, but not American. :thumbdown:

Wow I wonder now.... Which demographic public Pale Moon should be targeted to? :mrgreen:

EDIT: This is too late for American April's Fool and too early for LatinAmerican Fool's Day!!! (whitebirdbrowser -> Safari!!!) :mrgreen:
