Composer Voted Third Best Web Development Tool in Builder.com Readers' Choice Awards

Monday December 1st, 2003

irongut writes in with news that Mozilla Composer 1.5 came third in the Best Web Development Tool category of the CNET Builder.com 2nd Annual Readers' Choice Awards: "Their commentary says: 'Mozilla's relatively high showing is a bit of a surprise because, frankly, I never considered it to be a development tool. Perhaps those members using Mozilla would like to share with us what they like about it as a Web development tool.' Obviously they've never heard of Venkman."

If you look at the percentages, you'll see that the top 2 positions make up over 60% of those polled, so the fact that Composer got a relatively slim ~8% isn't as surprising. I think, among developers, Mozilla is fairly well known, and 'standards compliance' being a pushed keyword of anything Mozilla, I can see many developers giving it a shot. And, for those that purposely avoid plugins and whatnot, I'm sure Composer fits them perfectly.
