Mozilla Featured in 'Wall Street Journal'
Monday August 30th, 2004
Mozilla got some great press today on the front page of the Marketplace section in The Wall Street Journal. The article talks about the positives of Mozilla's security efforts versus the continued problems Microsoft is having with Internet Explorer. Run out and grab a copy or check out the article in full.
Correction: The section is called Marketplace (not Marketwatch as originally stated in this report).

Ooh, that was a great article for the Mozilla Foundation. I hope more articles of this sort keep coming as Firefox 1.0's launch draws closer.
#2 Ah, I see that Opera is OSS now

"Mozilla is one of several open-source browsers, which include Opera from Opera Software in Oslo." Lol.

Personally, didn't see the article as too positive, you mention the incorrect assumption that Opera is open source but it also did the following bad things: - Say that a mozilla flaw has been found recently without explaining how significant these flaws were compared to IE - Mentioned that some sites don't work in mozilla without explaining this is because of bad web design and most major sites work fine - Never mentioned the good things other than security that mozilla can bring

I would have read his page if he had not turned me off with his salty language.

Unusual view, that; it was only one word. "Salty" is not exactly what I would term it...

Blake's weblog used to be called something like "ramblings of an 8 year old", but that was about 2 years ago so perhaps he's now 10 :)

I wish they had commented on poorly coded Web Sites. I recently obtained a Morningstar (financial institution) account. Account details are only accessable by IE/OE at the System Manager's decision. They refuse to recognize either NS or Mozilla. To me that's poor coding, plain and simple. In this modern world (?) there's no reason a Web Site should be written specifically for one browser, exclusive of others. :-( (Sorry for the unfriendly attitude toward Morningstar's attitude.)

Since when? I don\'t remember seeing anywhere in the opera website any reference to their browser being Open Source.... It looks like a mistake to me...

That poster was joking.

"Mozilla got some great press today on the front page of the Marketwatch section in the Wall Street Journal." The section is called "Marketplace," not "Marketwatch."
The article has a nice illustration of the Mozilla dinosaur wearing a green button-down shirt and black slacks.
