The May 2004 issue of PC World features a short article about Mozilla Firefox 0.8. Reviewer Tom Spring likes the new download manager and the range of extensions available but concludes that the browser "remains too geeky for nontechies" he said it took him half an hour to master toolbar customisation.

Doesn't that say a lot?

But seriously - I have to take new computer science students through a long arduous and (for for me) tortuous process of understanding directory structure. Half the queries from students who are 'stuck' I get on my XHTML course are concerned with relative directory paths. So even people who write about computers for a living may not have the technical expertise that we'd all expect. Unless, of course, he's an ardent Firefox supporter and is wanting people to write in and say "it wasn't like that for us".
