Computerworld's Cusumano Takes Another Look at Mozilla

Monday November 1st, 1999

Mike Cusumano, writer of the Computerworld article that was much derided in our forum has taken a fresh look at Mozilla, and in his latest article at Computerworld has come to a different conclusion. I would like to thank him for having the fortitude to revisit Mozilla, and for posting his apology in his column.

I think it's pretty crucial that Mozilla retakes a large chunk of market share from IE. If it doesn't, most web developers will not bother to check their pages in both IE and Mozilla, and Mozilla users will suffer. Maybe a lot of webmasters will use Mozilla as a reference for their designs because of its standards-compliance, but from my experience most webmasters just develop for what's most used out there.

The good news is that M10 is excellent. I really can't wait to see the full 1.0 release, and I'm sure many people will use it. What's more, a lot of other products are looking at using the Mozilla engine.

As long as Microsoft doesn't make pages look totally different on IE, forcing people to choose beteen real standards and MS' de-facto standards, Mozilla will surely be successful.
