If you haven't yet seen the news, there's a contest going on called Extend Firefox:

Calling all Firefox enthusiasts: it's time to submit your work for the chance to win great prizes and earn bragging rights as one of the premier Extension developers for Firefox! We're looking for new and upgraded Firefox Extensions that focus on enhancing the Firefox experience, especially those that take advantage of new features in Firefox 1.5.

Jesse Ruderman has a quick overview of new Firefox 1.5 features that you're encouraged to take advantage of. The computer you could win looks pretty nice.

Need help or ideas? Try the new IRC channel. Or look at the list that Jesse published. (Bonus points if you make his Google idea work with Yahoo too...)

Disclaimer: I'm one of the judges. I do not take bribes. Well, not often. ;-)

It must be pretty difficult to cool that thing. Certainly not the case the gamer/oc crowd would be intersted in.

One thing that amazes me about living in the Baja is how smoothly the folks here deal with the bribes, extortion, and bad water. I wonder if that computer would actually work on a dial-up that stops all the time? Hmmm ...

If you thought the other mock-up was ugly. These are just mocks. The computer hasn't been airbrushed (or pimped) just yet so hard to say what it will look like until then.
