In our second annual review of the year, MozillaZine takes a look back at the events that have shaped the last twelve months.

It has been a great year for Mozilla. I am very happy that I can use Firebird on Linux without dragging out the whole Mozilla suite so I can use Evolution as my main email app. I have heard all the complaints over the last year or two about rendering problems with non-standard pages but I honestly haven't had any problems. I only had one problem with a bank that used DHTML that was IE specific but that was only one site out of maybe 30 that didn't work.

I resolve to ignore all forum and newsgroup threads this year related to comparisons between IE and Mozilla; feature competitions between the two browsers; and comments repeating the old boring mantra that Mozilla is a doomed browser in the face of Explorer's market dominance. May Linux, Mozilla, and Open Source flourish in the desktop computing space this year. I also resolve to watch less T.V. and make it to the gym more to lose my CRT gut. I also promise to pay Mandrake for my copy of their fine OS once I get a job again that elevates me out of living from check to check.
