I have joined Mozilla Japan
If you’ve been reading my blog this year, you may have noticed that I’ve been blogging a lot more about Firefox recently.
That’s because I’ve joined Mozilla Japan to help with marketing and business development in Japan. I’m also helping with business development in other Asian markets as well.
Our challenge at Mozilla Japan is to raise awareness and the user base of Firefox in Japan. It’s a big challenge for many reasons but it is a worthy challenge. Japanese users do not know that there are options for web browsers beyond IE and it is my job to help change that.
Web browsers are quickly becoming one of the most important applications on any personal computer and it is a shame that the company in Redmond has waited for over 5 years to update their product which has been filled with security holes and numerous other concerns. In fact it is only after Firefox was launched and began to take away market share that the company in Redmond decided to act. Competition is healthy and important in any market, web browsers included.
If you have any ideas for us on how to raise the awareness of Firefox in Japan or how to raise the user base of Firefox in Japan, please feel free to get in touch and I’ll be sure to consider any ideas. We are excited to work with new partners in Japan.
We’ll be launching a number of new efforts in Japan to raise awareness of Firefox in Japan and I’ll be tracking those in various places in addition to my blog.
Please join me in promoting Firefox in Japan. Please recommend Firefox to your friends.
