Firefox and Vatican Team Up

On Firefox Key the lookout to distinguish themselves from the sometimes lame symbols of safety big proprietary software makers are using, Mozilla Foundation often finds unconventional and humorous ways. As my former professor Olia Lialina points out in her collection of “Car Metaphors” and related computer analogies, the new key symbol from the Security page of Firefox looks as if it was derived from Vatican’s coat of arms. With such imagery Olia feels she was “doing the right thing.” So do I. (Links and images from January 4, 2010)
