    The robot in the first pic is one of the various robot pics that were displayed on the download sites of firefox 3 beta versions. The video is a clip from The Day the Earth Stood Still and the words that the actress uses are Klaatu Barada Nikto which are the same words in the title bar in the about:robots page in firefox 3.

    In Firefox 3, “about:robots” opens a page named “Gort! Klaatu barada nikto!” with references to some geeky but well-known robots in movies and books – “to permanently commemorate the noble deeds of the robot community in their fight for an open web”

    Connect: In Firefox 3, “about:robots” page has the title “Gort! Klaatu barada nikto!”, which is the same phrase as in the movie.

    “Robots have shiny metal posteriors which should not be bitten.” haha….

    some blog says , that you type “about:robots” in the address bar of Firefox 3 Beta 5 , all sorts of robot messages are displayed on the screen and even this “Gort! Klaatu barada nikto” …

    I think that’s the one in the video. It’s from the movie The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951).

    that’s the phrase to stop that robot or something like that..

    That robot is from Firefox 3, and the clip is from ‘The Day The Earth Stood Still’

    In Firefox 3.0, about:robots opens a page named “Gort! Klaatu barada nikto!”, which is what the broad tells Gort to stop him from destroying the world.
