mozCC Gets Better and Gets Noticed
Mike Linksvayer, February 12th, 2004
mozCC, an extension for Mozilla-based browsers that exposes Creative Commons license metadata as you surf, got noticed by Slashdot last weekend. The resulting surge of new users brought new bug reports, fixes for which creator Nathan Yergler has already incorporated in mozCC 0.7.7 along with new features. The new version looks for license metadata in SMIL and SVG multimedia files in addition to HTML.
mozCC was inspired by one of our technology challenges. The challenge remains open for non-Mozilla browsers (e.g., Safari, Opera, IE, hint, hint, hint).
