Time Magazine Article on Mozilla

Asa Dotzler writes: "Mozilla makes Time magazine, print and web. Seems that this reviewer appreciates 'the clever, stress-saving bells and whistles that come from millions of geek hours of testing.' I guess so called 'geek features' like tabbed browsing and pop-up blocking aren't so geeky afterall. Check out a scan of the print version and read the article over on Time.com."

Please do keep your corporate skepticism filters active, but an article in a cousin publication is not necessarily a paid ad. For one, Time Warner journalists seem to be taking pains to show their "objectivity" about AOL--there have been at least a couple very negative Netscape 6 articles (and this one only mentions it to say it crashes a lot). For another, if it were a marketing-inspired article it wouldn't be about Mozilla, it would be about Netscape's version. The fact that this article was published will make it harder to get Time to cover Netscape's upcoming 1.0-based release -- they have limited space and might decide they've covered browsers enough recently to want to do another any time soon.
