German ComputerBase Looks at Mozilla Project

The numbers shown in this report are very interesting, stating that they get roughly 19% hits from Mozilla based browsers in April 04 up from 14% in January 04." The automated Google translation features amusing turns of phrase such as, "one chops practically blindly the search word into the keyboard."

He just meant the page-searching feature finding words by typing them right in.

Besides: Firefox was mentioned today on a big Computer-Show called "Planetopia online" (at least I heard it`s quite popular) broadcastet at Sat1 on German Telly. They amphased the security advantages of Firefox and praised features like "Tabbed Browsing" and "Pop-up blocking". Allthough they don`t know the difference between Java and Javascript, I think it`s a good thing raising popularity.
