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.

> this is due to a lack of marketing and the "bundling of Internet Explorer with Windows". Whatta u know, the same thing that killed Netscape (the company). Fortunately, there are now OSes other than Windows that run versions of Mozilla perfectly fine. Some Linux distributions already come with Mozilla out-of-the-box. Too bad Apple didn't embrace Camino (or similar).
