eWeek Reports on New Mozilla Roadmap

Wednesday April 30th, 2003

Peter Lairo wrote in to tell us that eWeek has a report about the new Mozilla Development Roadmap. The article, which is mostly accurate, outlines the changes proposed in the new plan and evaluates their likely effects. eWeek describes the new strategy as "overwhelmingly positive" but does express concern that the stronger module ownership model could slow down innovation.

Don't tell him that. He's quite happy in his little fantasy world, and hopefully it will stop him hijaking every other topic here with posts about Mozilla 'failing' because they didn't just concentrate on the browser.

Logic might consider the realities of browser distribution which say Microsoft has 80% of the market and the rest is a fight between Gecko, Opera and lately KHTML based products.

Reason might also invoke the observation that Gecko browsers are more widely used then Opera's browsers despite that fact that they are a browser-only company.

But ignoring any of that, I can quite safely say that switching all the Mozilla-browser developers to Mozilla Browser will make all the difference, and we can expect 95% market share within two weeks of 1.5 being released.
