Round Two plans to launch its initial offerings, which will be targeted at individual and corporate Firefox users, later this spring. The company's sponsorship of leading Firefox-related projects places it at the heart of the Firefox community:

- Bandwidth Tester is downloaded approximately 70,000 times each week, making it one of the five most popular Firefox extensions. This extension allows users to test the speed of their Internet connection.
- SwitchProxy, which has already been downloaded by more than 100,000 users, is rapidly gaining in popularity. SwitchProxy allows users to configure Firefox to function in environments with multiple web proxy servers and lets users surf the Net anonymously.
- is a community web site that offers the largest selection of extensions for Firefox and Thunderbird (the Mozilla Foundation's email application).

"The first time I met the Round Two guys, I was impressed by their user-centric and community-oriented vision. Their sponsorship will contribute additional resources and inspiration to FlashGot," noted Giorgio Maone, the creator of FlashGot, the most popular Firefox extension.

"I'm excited to be working with Round Two because they are helping to foster my development and promote my extensions to a broader audience. Under their umbrella and with Round Two's support, we'll see these extensions evolve in ways that would not have been possible before," said Jeremy Gillick, the author of a dozen Firefox extensions, including Bandwidth Tester and SwitchProxy.

"I’m glad that with the help of Round Two we will be able to continue to improve The Extensions Mirror. We will no longer have to worry about our server infrastructure and will be able to focus on our most important task, mirroring extensions," commented Samir Boulema, the creator of, a popular site for Firefox and Thunderbird extensions.
