#50 Why Moz is important to me

I've been a Netscape fanatic since the days of the throbbing blue and grey "N". Microsoft has a better browser in terms of rendering speed over 4.x, but it's so unsecure and the UI leaves a lot to be desired. Not to mention that I detest Microsoft's business practices. Oh, and there's also the matter of a 17 meg minimum download to get new versions of IE. Oh but wait, I also forgot about the propietary web extensions that lock out anyone who isn't using Windows. And that's just the tip of the iceberg.

And then we have Mozilla. I am looking forward to a small footprint...to super fast rendering...to complete standards compliance...to a 100% customizable interface...to cross platform code and ports to devices ranging from handhelds to settops to PC's...to a true secure means of surfing the web...and to the return to being the leader in the browser market.

Moz can't do it alone though, even if the browser is better than anything else anyone can produce. Moz needs help from AOL to put it on all those coasters they send out, and help from all of us to spread the word to our family, friends, and co-workers. Moz CAN and WILL do it!!
