Hi,
I just made an account here to thank you for your stellar work.
I've never looked to another browser since I started using cyberfox just a few years ago.

It's sublime. I hope you manage to achieve your goals and life restructuring, nothing is more important than health..


However, I noticed you mentioned CDN charges.... Waterfox has a free tie up with MaxCDN...
Surely they or another CDN distributor would be willing to host this stellar open-source project for free??

Maybe the core team could look into this? At least it would reduce costs for the ESR period...

Hi HaoZeke

I have looked at that and contacted many services all that was offered were discounts between 5-7% off, based on the information i provided them at the
time for data bandwidth usage and average requests to 8pecxstudios server (Not including Sourceforge being its the most used), most said needed
minimum tier 2 of there product they recommended as the basic wasn't enough, This meant the price range per month ranged from $150 usd - $300 usd
and if any limits were reached the additional costs per xxx amount used, this also left if someone wanted to abuse the service a potential to cost me allot of money. But that's not including the usage on Sourceforge something i couldn't gauge but would likely need a higher tier yet again and the main factor
was the amount of bandwidth being used per month that pushes the cost up really fast.

Long story short with the growth rate cyberfox was on it would have ended up been far more then i could afford to sustain. Data usage dropped by half
after this announcement and has been on a steady decline even with still supporting Cyberfox till end of ESR, so paying for a CDN will be no point and a
waste of money. But if a CDN did offer a free service i would definitely switch over to it.

Hi, I've used Cyberfox as my default browser for a couple of years now, and I would personally like to thank you for such a brilliant browser, sad to see that it's coming to E.O.L. Also your health is the main concern so take good care, even though it is coming to E.O.L I will still use Cyberfox after that, and for many more years to come, regardless of whether there are any more updates or not. So once again thanks for the memories and a BRILLIANT browser, and take care of yourself.
