Lifehacker's Favorite Firefox Extensions--Plus a Few of Our Own

,----[ Quote ]
| As most people who use Firefox know, its hugest advantage over other browsers 
| is the powerful galaxy of extensions available for it. Lifehacker's top 10 
| list includes a few extensions that I don't use but will have to try out. In 
| particular, I like the idea of AutoCopy, which lets you copy text online by 
| simply selecting it, and fixes long and unweildy URLs. For anyone who writes 
| online, it sounds like a time-saver.

Happy Birthday, Mozilla

,----[ Quote ]
| On this day, eleven years ago, 31st March 1998, the Mozilla codebase was
| unleashed on the world with the simple command "Come and get it". And, since
| then, people have - at least 865 million times.


Internet Explorer 8 launch fails to dent Firefox

,----[ Quote ]
| The release of Internet Explorer 8 hasn't had any significant impact on
| Firefox or any other competing browser, data collected by StatsCounter shows.
| While the final release of IE8 increased its market share slightly on launch
| day to 1.39 percent, Firefox 3.0 grew more quickly and reached 25.38 percent.
| The most significant losses were for Internet Explorer 7: the outgoing
| browser lost 0.4 percent of the total share.


Firefox inches towards 50%, Safari holds steady

,----[ Quote ]
| These are the kind of stats that should make the Mozilla folks very happy.
| According to W3Schools data, Firefox climbed to 46.4% in February, while the
| various versions of IE dropped by 1.2% to 43.6%. Granted, this is skewed
| towards developers, but most sources agree that IE is on a downward slope.



Ten years of Mozilla

,----[ Quote ]
| Ten years ago, Netscape announced it would release to the public the code of
| its flag ship product, Netscape Communicator 5, making it an open source
| product. The action came at a time when Netscape was still the dominant web
| browser: 65 million users and 90% market share in the educational segment
| according to Netscape’s own accounts. But Microsoft’s Internet Explorer was
| grabbing share at a furious pace thanks to it being free (at a time Netscape
| was about$30) and specially the fact that it came bundled with Windows 95 and
| upcoming Windows 98 (released on June 1998).


Gates deposition videos

,----[ Quote ]
| Boies: Do you remember that in January, 1996, a lot of OEMs were
| bundling non-Microsoft browsers?
| Gates: I'm not sure.
| Boies: What were the non-Microsoft browsers that you were
| concerned about in January of 1996?
| Gates: What's the question? You're trying to get me to recall
| what other browsers I was thinking about when I wrote that sentence?
| Boies: No, because you've told me that you don't know what you
| were thinking about when you wrote that sentence.
| Gates: Right.
| Boies: What I'm trying to do is get you to tell me what
| non-Microsoft browsers you were concerned about in January of
| 1996. If it had been only one, I probably would have used the
| name of it. Instead I seem to be using the term non-Microsoft
| browsers. My question is what non-Microsoft browsers were you
| concerned about in January of 1996?
| Gates: I'm sure -- what's the question? Is it -- are you asking
| me about when I wrote this e-mail or what are you asking me about?
| Boies: I'm asking you about January of 1996.
| Gates: That month?
| Boies: Yes, sir.
| Gates: And what about it?
| Boies: What non-Microsoft browsers were you concerned about in
| January of 1996?
| Gates: I don't know what you mean "concerned."
| Boies: What is it about the word "concerned" that you don't
| understand?
| Gates: I'm not sure what you mean by it.
