The weird idea is all yours.

You said :

"In addition, as time goes on, the IE monopoly gains strength. Positive feedback and network effects predominate in market share, and delayed projects have virtually no chance of competing effectively with entrenched products. What's the use of releasing Mozilla 1.0 at the point where IE has 95% market share? It's already all over then. Mozilla becomes a fringe cult browser that no one even bothers to test on." And my response was that that makes no sense. The IE marketshare has absolutely no bearing on the usefulness of releasing Mozilla 1.0. It would not matter if IE had 100% marketshare and Mozilla were an inferior browser - there would still be good reason to release it.
