Where and Whither Mozilla?

,----[ Quote ]
| The importance of Mozilla and its Firefox 
| browser went up a notch last week. For it 
| was then that it became clear that 
| Microsoft has little intention of following 
| a very particular standard â its own OOXML, 
| pushed through the ISO at great cost to 
| that institution's authority. Contrast that 
| with Microsoft's increasingly positive 
| signals about Web standards, which it is 
| adopting with notable fervency â largely 
| thanks to Firefox.
| Microsoft is complaisant because Firefox's 
| market share is getting close to the 
| critical level where it becomes the 
| dominant browser in the market. According 
| to the first Mozilla Metrics Report, 
| Mozilla's global market share is around 
| 30%. That figure is confirmed by the latest 
| figure from W3Counter, which gives Internet 
| Explorer 48% globally, and 32% to Firefox. 


Mozilla Wants Your Opinion on Open Web

,----[ Quote ]
| The open source community spends a lot of 
| time kicking around the idea of an open Web 
| and how best to develop open and non-
| proprietary specifications for Web 
| technologies. Creating a plan is one thing, 
| but communicating the importance of an open 
| Web to non-technical computer users is 
| another. Mozilla has taken the reins in an 
| attempt to form an understandable 
| explanation and wants your help.



Firefox claims 40% of Euro browser share

| Mozilla's little browser that could is
| actually on its way to dethroning Internet
| Explorer as the default, most widely used
| browser in the world, and the apex of its
| growth is in Europe.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
