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.

Exactly. Most knowlegablepeople agree that mozilla is a better browser than IE (yes I'm biased, but if you read the computer press they will say the same). So why has mozilla got such a small market share? Because we are not really competing with MS on features, we are competing to get Mozilla as the first browser that people see when they setup their computer or internet account.
