All that I can remember of this dream is that it took place during the day, and I drove on the bridge leaving the city of LC with a man with light-color skin who wanted to stop on the bridge to get close to the water/river/bayou/lake/whatever.
We stopped on the bridge and stood on the edge, the man wanted to swim in the water or something like that even though I told him that it was not a good idea because of alligators and snakes et cetera, but he possibly jumped in anyway and did not come back up or I just daydreamed several possible scenarios.
From this, it can be conjectured that the “beast” referred to in The Book of Mozilla is a type of fire-breathing lizard, which can be viewed as a metaphor for, or personification of Netscape.
While part of the appeal of The Book of Mozilla comes from the mysterious nature, a knowledge of the history of Netscape and Mozilla can be used to extract some meaning from the verses.
Furthermore, the Book of Mozilla page has annotations for each of the first, second, third and fifth verses hidden as comments in its HTML source code.
These comments were written by Valerio Capello in May 2004 and were added to the Mozilla Foundation site by Nicholas Bebout in October that year.
Neither Capello nor Bebout are ‘core’ Mozilla decision-makers; and there is no evidence that Capello’s interpretations received any high-level approval from the senior management of the Mozilla Foundation.
Recently my male coworker Mr. JM told me about and showed me The Book Of Mozilla Easter egg for the web browser Mozilla Firefox that I did not know about.
Mr. JM had me type about:mozilla in the Firefox web browser, and that displayed a random entry from The Book Of Mozilla.
I then did a web search to find Mozilla’s web page with all the verses, and I read some of the Wikipedia page about it.
I think that this is a creative Easter egg, and I think that they should add more verses.
