eWeek Predicts Mozilla will Challenge Internet Explorer

Monday July 28th, 2003

In his latest opinion piece for eWeek, Jim Rapoza tackles a favourite topic of tech columnists recently: are the Browser Wars coming back? Rapoza thinks that they are and says Microsoft's recent decision to only provide enhancements to Internet Explorer via Windows upgrades could leave an opening for alternative browsers. Mozilla, Rapoza argues, is well-placed to take advantage of this opportunity with its up-to-date and innovative technology.

I hate to continue this completely off-topic thread, but I can't help myself when I see corporate propoganda.

"... it costs an average of 800 million US$ to bring a drug to market". 50% of the R&D is funded by US taxpayers. An economist did a study that if the government funded 100%, the savings to Medicare alone would more then make up for the extra expenditure. Good intro here <http://www.cepr.net/wto/realdrugcrisis.htm>

"On average, businesses only make a 6% profit on your purchases." It just so happens that the pharmaceutical industry is the most profitable of all industries. 19% profits in the last Fortune 500 list.
