Introduction   Happy Anniversary! :-D

Yes... it's been ten years since I published my very first Mozilla add-on!
Time to take a quick look back.

On March 5th, 2005 I released Signature Switch for Thunderbird here on my own website.

Motivated by the positive feedback many users gave in response, I created my next Thunderbird add-on - NestedQuote Remover - just two days later.
And about a month later my first Firefox add-on Save Link in Folder (plus its spin-off extension Save Image in Folder) got released.

It really was a fun time!
Seeing the minimalistic feature-set of the initial Signature Switch grow with every release was extremely satisfactory.
Beside new features, the amount of UI-translations sent in by dedicated translators along with various other contributions also steadily increased.

So at this point I also want to thank all the contributors (translators, testers, journalists, etc.) again. They significantly helped me to make my add-ons widely popular!
Mozilla Dino
I'm proud that Signature Switch still is amongst Mozilla's twelve officially featured add-ons for Thunderbird!

Signature Switch - featured

According to official statistics from AMO I'm more than happy to say that Save Image in Folder was downloaded more than 1.6 million times and Signature Switch to this day still has in average more than 90,000 daily users.
That's truly amazing!
Of course... as time went by other things in my life have taken over attention; and although I haven't been very active developing new features for my add-ons lately, I always had an eye on my "Mozilla stuff" - ensuring that everything keeps up and running.

So... just to make it short:

Let's go for another ten years!
Keeping true to Mozilla and using these wonderful open-source products!
I certainly will. :)
