FISL took place in Porto Alegre, Brazil from June 24th through June 27th and had over 8,000 participants. It was the conference's 10th edition, but only the second year for Mozilla. For me, it was the opportunity to finally meet the community I had been working with for the past year and a half, and they were even more amazing than I expected. Thank you to everyone who participated this year, it was a fantastic experience.

We have accomplished so much in Brazil since my last update that I thought it was time to report on the latest news and activities. The community is vibrant and involved in all the current projects, and Firefox usage is increasing! Net Applications reports that market share was 38.6% in March 2009, up from 19% in November 2007 when we started increasing our activity level in Brazil.
Firefox was just chosen by Info Magazine as the best software and best browser of the year for 2008.
I wanted to share the tremendous progress that has been made so far in Brazil in 2008. Here's a summary of the activities and some of the results.
