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.

Good point. Market share isn't everything. Apple claims to have about 5% market share (the number's different depending who you ask), and industry pundits have been predicting their demise for years. Yet they manage to churn out superior products and have a dedicated band of followers (to say the least). Really, it's the latter that's more or less been responsible for Apple's success. In that respect, even if Mozilla can't knock IE from the dominant spot, at least there will be an attractive alternative, one with a strong and dedicated user base.
