Firefox Friday Feature of the Week: Personas

Today marks the very first Firefox Friday. It is the brainchild of Myra Jill. Every Friday, the members of the Mozilla Philippines Community will write a blog post and a tweet, with the tags #FirefoxFriday and #MozillaPH. As my personal twist on Firefox Friday, I will write about a Firefox feature that I like. The very first feature that I have chosen to highlight to day is Personas.

Personas is a light theming system for Firefox. It has drastically lowered the barrier of entry to make Firefox themes. There are now more than 35,000 themes available. As a user, I find that personas theme loads quickly and responsive. I could also choose a random theme from a certain category, and each of my Firefox windows will have a different theme.
You get Personas automatically when you download the Firefox 3.6, the latest release. If you like Personas so much, you can also get Personas Plus, an add-on that super-charges your Personas experience.

Mozilla Campus Reps schedule of activities

The 2010 kick-off meeting of the Mozilla Philippines Community was held yesterday at the UP Ayala Technohub. A lot of items were discussed, but I will focus on the Mozilla Campus Representatives activities for the first quarter of this year. Most of these are simply to push Mozilla Firefox into schools, and establish Campus Reps in these campuses.
  • IT Week, AMA Computer University, Quezon City
    The Campus Rep here is John Arce. The school term started late, and so the IT week has been moved as well to mid-February, hopefully not on Valentine's Day.
  • IT Week, Colegio de San Juan de Letran, Manila
    There are no local campus reps, but they are currently represented by the campus reps from their sister school from Calamba. No dates have been set yet.
    Notice was given too late. It will be held tomorrow, Jan 28.
  • IT Week, Colegio de San Juan de Letran, Calamba
    Local campus reps are Eusebio Barrun and Joell Lapitan. Tentative date is sometime in March.
If you want Mozilla Campus Reps to visit you, please get in touch with us through the comments.
