The campaign run by 'Spread Firefox' started this Tuesday with the goal of getting over 2,000 people willing to donate $30 or more to the marketing fund within 10 days, or before Firefox reaches the 1.0 milestone. Today it was made public that over $100,000 has been already raised, good enough to buy at least a couple of spots in the NYT as first intended.
"We've definitely funded the ad and then some," Decrem said. "It's so impressive--the excitement around this and the numbers. People are coming out of nowhere to join in."
