Will Firefox take over the web?
Ben Goodger has worked with AOL’s Netscape division and is now the lead engineer for Mozilla Foundation’s Firefox. He answers some great questions:
Some interesting questions with interesting answers:
- Here’s a question coming from your blog. "Sept. 17, 2004, Market Dominance: Netscape had it by being first. Microsoft has it by being everywhere. Firefox will have it by being best. We’re coming." Do you really expect market dominance?
- What are some other things about Firefox that you think make it inherently safer?
- How does Mozilla compete in a Longhorn [codename for the next version of Windows] world–assuming that it ever gets here?
- Tell me how Microsoft’s decision not to release any more standalone IE versions affects Mozilla.
I’ve harped on it before, I’ll harp on it again: Get Firefox
Firefox is an awesome browser. It’s free. It’s safe. It’s fast. IE is a junked-out Pinto compared to this sporty newbie.
Firefox released its latest version 1 month ago. If you aren’t one of the 4.4 million people who have already downloaded it, do yourself a favor and get it.
