Are you a web developer proficient in either PHP/MySQL or Google Maps API/Ajax development? Are you looking for a way to help the Hurricane Katrina relief efforts besides just donating some cash?

Then please check out the Katrina Caravan Rescue’s call for web developer volunteers. They need help getting their website & database up to snuff so they can help people even more. Please check it out, post about it, and pass it on.

Firefox developer joins Google

Steve Rubel, one of this blogs’ favorite bloggers, reports that Firefox lead developer Ben Goodger has joined Google, as Goodger wrote on his blog:

As of January 10, 2005, my source of income changed from The Mozilla Foundation to Google, Inc. of Mountain View, California. My role with Firefox and the Mozilla project will remain largely unchanged, I will continue doing much the same work as I have described above – with the new goal of successful 1.1, 1.5 and 2.0 releases.

Rubel asks the million dollar question: What, if anything, does this do to the rumors that Google is developing a web browser based on Firefox?
