In a little more detail...

Michael Kaply has been developing and customizing web browsers since 1996. In his 15+ years at IBM, he was a developer or team lead for OS/2 based browsers, including Netscape Navigator, IBM Web Browser and Firefox. During his time at IBM, Michael also focused on making the enterprise deployment of Firefox easier, which included developing the CCK Wizard Firefox extension which helps enterprises customize Firefox. The CCK Wizard is used by a number of large companies, including IBM. Other extensions developed by Michael include Operator which enables microformats inside of Firefox and IE8 Activities which is an implementation of the IE8 Accelerators functionality for Firefox.
