Firefox FUD not lagging

,----[ Quote ]
| Don't get me wrong, I've got my issues 
| with Firefox too, It still uses far too 
| much memory and is still far too slow on 
| startup. However, with the current Firefox 
| 4 development plan, which is very 
| aggressive, I just don't see how Firefox 
| is lagging behind anyone. Releases 
| continue to come at a steady pace, new 
| technologies continue to be debuted and 
| the road ahead for Firefox continues to 
| move forward. 


Firefox, Chrome, Safari have finally killed Internet Explorer

| What this means, is that âwe did itâ. Most 
| web applications are based on AJAX, and 
| work on any browser. No bank will ever 
| release an Internet Banking system that 
| will only work on IE. Nobody can really 
| afford to make a browser that behaves 
| oddly, so that a web site will look 
| âbrokenâ on any other browser. The web 
| will remain a well documented, free 
| platform on which more and more people 
| will develop. The Australian Tax Office is 
| going to have to come up with a much 
| better piece of software to pay your taxes 
| online.


LongTailVideo Releases The First Flexible Open-Source HTML5 Video Player

| Last week, LongTailVideo announced that 
| they have created and released the open 
| source JW Player in a new HTML 5 version 
| (Beta) that features PNG skinning, 
| Javascript API, fallback to flash and 
| more. Perhaps this could become the new 
| standard for sites looking to implement an 
| open source HTML 5 video player solution.



Firefox and chrome user growth

| So, how does that compare to Firefox growth
| over the same period. Here's what it looks
| like when you plot Firefox user growth on
| top of that Chrome chart.


for every new user of chrome, there are 2.5 new firefox users

| Some people complained about my graphic in
| the previous post so I've tried again. I
| hope it's clearer than the last one.
