Firefox Dashboard

Filed under
Moz/FF

We've started a project to define and build a community dashboard to track Firefox adoption. The plan is to publish a full set of metrics and raw data so that everyone has as much information in their hands as possible, to assist with planning and decision making around driving adoption worldwide.

We're going to release everything under a CC license, and given the nature of some of the data it should be pretty valuable for other open projects as it gives a unique view into Internet adoption and activity patterns on a global basis.

How can you help?

* If you've got statistics in your blood, love econometrics, or otherwise like to understand and tinker with modeling, please do join us. This is real world data that we're trying hard to better understand and to affect through community marketing programs on a global basis.

* If you're driving a Spread Firefox project or have ideas for new projects, jump into the conversation and let's talk about what sort of data and metrics you think would be useful for us all to collectively gather and track.

Full Story.
