According to, Mozilla will soon add a Xhosa language pack to  its popular Firefox browser with the help of global language service provider, Rubric, which donated 30 000 Xhosa words it had helped translate to Mozilla to help with the project.

Xhosa is the second most-spoken language in South Africa after Zulu, with over 8 million people who speak it as their home language. Mozilla has plans to add more African language support to Firefox in the future, after already having added language packs and dictionaries for Zulu, South Ndebele, Southern Sotho, Tswana and Swahili.

If you’re a Firefox user and you want to download and install any of these language packs, head on over to Mozilla’s language addon directory page. If you’re not a Firefox user but you’re curious to try it out, you can download it directly from Mozilla here.

Deon got his first taste of PC gaming at the tender age of 11 when his father bought an 8088 XT, ostensibly to "help him with his homework". Instead, it introduced him to Leisure Suit Larry, King Graham, Sonny Bonds and many more, and Deon has been a PC gamer and hardware enthusiast ever since. He landed his first professional writing gig in 2006 at a prestigious local PC magazine, a very happy happenstance as he got to write for a living about things he loves - tech, PCs, gaming, and everything in between. He's been writing about it all ever since, and loves every minute of it.
