A cupcake for Firefox 5: Microsoft has some fun with Mozilla’s new rapid release

Microsoft’s Internet Explorer team has made a tradition of sending the Firefox team a big, congratulatory IE cake upon the release of a new version of the rival browser. With today’s debut of Firefox 5, the first in Mozilla’s new rapid release cycle, that tradition has been downsized to reflect the IE team’s view of the Firefox update’s relative significance.
Yep, Microsoft sent Mozilla a cupcake.
“Congratulations on shipping! Love, the IE team,” reads the message inside the tiny box.
Even funnier is this post by Microsoft’s Ari Bixhorn, offering an “in-depth look at what’s new in Firefox 5.”
