The Book of Mozilla, Verse 11:9

Here, Mammon is Internet Explorer, which slept for the 5 years between releases. The beast reborn refers to Firefox, which gained supporters who self-organized through Spread Firefox, and undertook publicity for the browser, taking out an advertisement in The New York Times and making a crop circle shaped like the Firefox logo. The cunning of foxes is a direct reference to Firefox’s name. The new world refers to modern, standards based dynamic websites and open source applications. The latter half of the passage links to the Mozilla Manifesto and the about:Mozilla newsletter, and describes Internet Explorer as a follower. Additionally, this quote from the 10th edition, an allusion to the Mozilla Foundation’s 10th anniversary during the Firefox 3 development cycle.
