I was chatting with some fellow Yahoos after Doc's closing keynote at the Syndicate Conference tonight when I learned something amusing. Apparently Jonathan Schwartz said that the Yahoo! Toolbar was only available for Internet Explorer.

Now Jonathan is a busy guy, so I'm not surprised that he missed the launch of the Yahoo! Toolbar for Firefox back in February of this year.

In that post, Duke said:

If you've been following Asa's blog, you probably already know that Firefox is well on its way to 25 million downloads worldwide. Well Yahoo! has certainly noticed and believe me, Firefox is very popular here at Yahoo! too.

Wow. It's hard to believe that Firefox had only 25 million downloads back then. We've come a long way since then.

Go Firefox.

Why don't you make it available for Solaris?

Firefox runs on Solaris, right? What's the problem?

The Download page for the Toolbar says "Windows, Mac, and Linux" for the supported platforms. If it's certified to work on Solaris or other platforms that can run Firefox, those other platforms should be listed as well.
