The about:credits page in Firefox


There is a special URL in Firefox. If you type the about:credits in your Firefox, you may see a list of contributors. So many people help Mozilla to improe their/our products. As a paied contributor, my name is on the list, finally. That means my contribution is significant to Mozilla. That's a good news to me.

If you also want to be listed, just fix lots bugs. That's what I did.

An app showing lots images brings memory pressure in mobile world. In Android, they tries to recycle the existing UI elements to show images. The original is freed automatically when the UI element's image source is changed. That's handled by Java's reference count, IIRC.
