Firefox.com belongs to Mozilla dot org

screenshotThe previous owner of Firefox.com Kevin Karpenske has transferred the domain name Firefox.com to Mozilla dot org.

Most Mozilla users appreciate Kevin's donation of domain name to Mozilla dot org. However, MozInfo701 failed to find out exactly why this happened. If anyone have insider information, please let us know.

Kevin Karpenske wrote in his forum,

t's official: Firefox.com is mine no more. The transfer of the domain to its new ownership with Mozilla has gone through, and the new transitional site should begin appearing for everyone over the next day or so.

Thanks to everyone who offered kind words these past few days. It was immensely appreciated.

I'd like to join everyone in wishing Mozilla Foundation the best of luck with the browser, and here's to hoping the new domain helps them get off on the right foot with the upcoming launch of Firefox 1.0.
