Mozilla Featured in Singapore's 'The Sunday Times'

Saturday January 24th, 2004

This weekend's edition of Singapore's The Sunday Times (produced by the same team as The Straits Times, the country's most widely-read newspaper) features an article about Mozilla. Noting that "tech publications have been heaping non-stop praise on Mozilla's Firebird browser," the report states that while Mozilla may be better than Internet Explorer, most potential users have never even heard of it. Charles Upsdell of Browser News and Peter-Paul Koch of QuirksMode are quoted as saying that this is due to a lack of marketing and the bundling of Internet Explorer with Windows.

Agreed with point that teens will lead (as they have in cell phone trends). What teens in Singapore and Hong Kong do feeds back to the "web literate" young Asians of the US and outward from there. Simply having a few fans in Asia use publicity banners on pages of such blogging services as Xanga could start the ball rolling, IMO. I note that Xanga has created a Mozilla-aware XTools for creating posts.
