Firefox fans go overboard yet again

As we’ve learned time and again, fans of the Firefox Web browser are a nutty bunch (even if they now include IBM). Now, while evidently blowing off their math homework, a handful of Firefox friends from Oregon State University have gone and painted a huge Firefox mural in the middle of the campus quad. Their choice of materials was curious. “Sidewalk chalk is expensive, and for the size of our project, quite inadequate,” they write on their Web site. “Instead we used a mixture of corn starch, food coloring, koolaid, and water.” (You can check out a decent pic here.) In the comments section of the site, a visitor brings up a good question: “How can you get that excited about an Internet browser?”
