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.

#2 Loose Organization

Mozilla, though having a central gatekeeping organization, is a loose groups of coders, testers, innovators, etc. Marketing is thus equally loose. You'll never see Mozilla on television or on the back of a magazine, but rather on the a fleet of personal sites of people who care enough about the browser to try to spread it to others.
