Two years ago, deviantART embarked on the beginning of a long process of applying to manage .ART, a new top-level domain that we believe belongs to the art community as a whole.
While the application process is still ongoing, we are committed to the .ART domain being one for artists, by artists. We have partnered with e-flux to take a stand for the future of art online — and we need your help to do so.

The Deep Blue

The world under the surface is vast, deep and mysterious. It speaks to our imaginations - sometimes it's presented as calm and tranquil, sometimes nightmarish and terrifying, sometimes vibrant and colorful, sometimes surreal and dream-like. What is your interpretation of the deep blue?
For this challenge, explore the idea of a world under water. What kind of creatures live there? Is it beautiful, dangerous, or both?

I know there are a million things that are different between the two browsers but we are not aiming on adding IE9 features or completely rearranging stuff to make it look 100% IE9-ish. We don't have the time to bother with such things. Instead, it is a theme that hopefully satisfies peoples' strange desires to make their Firefox look similar to IE9.

I know this is the Fourth Of July. I know I should write about how great America is and how we're Number One and how every other country sucks in comparison. I know I should be like every other patriotic right-wing blogger and post a music video of Lee Greenwood's Proud To Be An American or Martina McBride's Independence Day.
