Mozilla China Office Opens in Beijing

According to Gong Li, CEO of Mozilla China and former chief of Windows Live China, Mozilla China officially started its operation on Thursday. The China office will focus on marketing the Chinese version of Firefox as well as to work on other open source software projects. The Chinese Firefox will no longer be the simple translation of its English version, but also include localization settings for Chinese users and websites. As Google’s global partner, Mozilla will continue to collaborate with the search engine giant in China, but the new Chinese office will also explore other marketing opportunities with various parties, says Gong. Souce: 163.com

After firefox became popular, what are there, like 10 people in the world using the plain-jane mozilla?

One thing we could all mention to this guy, whatever he releases, is to make sure it shows chinese IDNs by default and not the damned punycode.

Of course .cn can be "safely" whitelisted because CNNIC only allows chinese character domain registrations, and I believe that it already is whitelisted in FF.

For this new thing, though, they either have to blindly whitelist .com or not, they can not whitelist it after making a guess as to which language the domain name is written in. I'm guessing that there will be discussions with the mozilla headquarters if they whitelist .com, but then they headquarters may not care so long as it's only the chinese who are subject to homograph attacks.

Re: Mozilla China Office Opens in Beijing

The whole point is that it was only ever an ill-conceived scheme for "protecting" a lot of cultural biggots in North America! Deep in the bowels of Mozilla there must be those that appreciate this and clearly see its irrelevance in non-English version of the browser.

If they do this for Chinese, which they seem to be signalling, it will get rolled out in all non-Latin version at the very least.
