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.

It all depends on how it's implemented. If there was a list in the preferences which listed all of the "certified" add-ons for that particular version of mozilla, and each one had a detailed description, there probably wouldn't be any troubles with it. Sort of like windows update.

But then again, nothing like that is even close to being implemented yet and the security issues of logging into a remote server would have to be addressed.
