Fraternity Prank by Microsoft Backfires

Netscape employees found a gigantic blue stage prop in the shape of an ‘e’ in front of their company’s front door one recent morning.

Netscape had the last laugh in the prank, though. Netscape employees placed a 12-foot foam likeness of their mascot ‘Mozilla’ — a green Godzilla-like creature on top of the ‘e’. Mozilla held a placard that read: Netscape — 72 Microsoft – 18 referring to recent market share data.
