Unearthing the origins of Firefox

Get Firefox!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:

Unearthing the origins of Firefox | Newsmakers | CNET News.com

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.
