More Mozilla News Articles

Monday June 17th, 2002

It's been almost a fortnight since Mozilla 1.0 came out but fresh news about the release is still being published. Wes McGee wrote to tell us that The Washington Post featured a review of Mozilla in its Fast Forward column on Sunday. Meanwhile, CNN is carrying an AP story that discusses the potential success of Mozilla and asks if it will threaten Microsoft (Marcel notes that there's a discussion about the article on Slashdot). Not everyone is optimistic though: in an interview with MacCentral, Netscape co-founder Marc Andreessen said that he doesn't think that the browser wars are about to return. Once again, Slashdot has a story.

Apple would never bundle mozilla. Simply because of MS Office X. If Apple dared to bundle mozilla instead of IE, then Microsoft would say "Oh, the mac isn't really profitable. We're not going to make Office for it anymore". They did it once before, they can do it again.

How much macs do you think Apple would sell then? No matter how good StarOffice/OpenOffice is, MS Office is still one of those "must have" things if you want to be taken serious as a desktop contender. Just look at linux on the desktop. Even ZDNet's guy says desktop linux is "not bad", but he'll still ding it because it doesn't run his favourite apps, meaning: Office.
