For the last month or two I’ve been meaning to write a little essay on the rise of Mozilla and the fall of IE, but these are suddenly a dime a dozen. In the past 18 months I’ve gone using IE 90% of the time and Mozilla for the remaining 10%, to 95% Firefox and just 5% IE.
There’s still a lot to be said about the use of Mozilla as a truly portable application platform. There is an amazing variety of high-quality extensions . Here’s my personal collection:
- DOM Inspector
- Web Developer
- Google Preview
- Google Pagerank
- Del.icio.us Integration
There are lots of lessons to be learned here, but I have a plane to catch this morning, so I will be even more terse than usual.
