Just in case you haven’t heard yet, we recently announced the Mobile Test Drivers (MTD) Program with a goal of increasing Firefox for Android testing coverage. For those of you familiar with “dogfood” programs at other organizations, we’re trying to accomplish something very similar.
We’re looking to build a diverse community of Mozillians (staff and volunteers) who will come together to test nightly builds of Firefox for Android, file bugs, and provide regular feedback. We’ll be teaching everybody involved how to test and file bugs through a set of simple tutorials, and there will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions.
The initial focus of this program, much like the mobile refresh, will be on small form factor devices. We’ll have a (limited) supply of Android phones available for Mozilla staff and volunteers who don’t already have an Android phone.
For Americans in the audience, Thanksgiving is a time for giving – so please consider joining us and giving your time to the MTD cause. For everybody else, just look into this fox’s eyes and try to tell him no…
