Mozilla Browser of Choice for Playboy Lifestyle

Saturday December 14th, 2002

I Read The Articles writes: "The January 2003 (print) edition of Playboy has a glowing review of Mozilla in its Living Online section on page 36. It starts: 'Microsoft's Internet Explorer is the most popular browser in the world. But it's not the best. That title belongs to Mozilla...' If you were waiting for an excuse to go buy Playboy, now's your chance."

Eh. No. Ok, Playboy isn't real pr0n. But it has had some incredible photographers amongst its ranks through the ages. For example, one great Pop Art piece that is often cited is "The Girls of Mel Ramos" (Chicago: Playboy Press, 1975). And it has had some of the best interviews I have read. Paul Simon's best interview was for Playboy, just to name one <http://www.medialab.chalm…tar/simon.interview6.html> . Also, when was the last time you read something controversial in Time or Newsweek (excluding articles that usually poorly represent the results of a scientific experiment/study)? But in some ways you're right, the Playboy of today is not the Playboy of the 1970's. But neither is Rolling Stone or some of the other great interesting magazines. The sad thing about it all is that I'm not seeing anyone come up and replace them. It's a lot like radio now, where all the stations are Top 40 of whichever decade or musical genre. Anyway, I'm rambling.
