Marc Andreessen Praises Mozilla

Friday February 14th, 2003

To celebrate the tenth anniversary of NCSA Mosaic, Wired News has an interview with Marc Andreessen, a member of the Mosaic team who went on to co-found Netscape Communications Corporation. Andreessen has this to say about Mozilla: "When Mozilla opened source code in 1998, everyone expected things to happen overnight. But it took a few years for the project to catalyze. Now people have an open-source alternative that's fast and free and works. The user interface is definitely getting better, and over the last four or five years, dynamic HTML and JavaScript have gotten more sophisticated as a UI platform... I'm using Mozilla pretty much full time."

Well, this is a change. Until recently, Andreessen had been saying "It's over!! Microsoft won!!" He even went so far as to tell people that he uses IE as his primary browser for his business. I wonder what turned him around?
