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 agree with that. Often people don't even know what a browser is. They assume clicking on the IE icon is "launching the Internet", where Internet may be some kind of software, but they're not really sure. Try as you might to explain to them the difference between the Web, the Internet, what browsers are, and what you've got is a blank stare.
