  • annnnnnnd....what's the incentive to use this product?

    I'll stick with my trusty Firefox, thank you.

  • One of the most interesting aspects of the IE vs. Firefox battle is the development of the ecosystem of extensions or add-ons. It’s not just about bugs and features. Right now Firefox had a great advantage in this space but you can see Microsoft trying to catch up.

    Microsoft has an interesting partner in Trailfire, a recommended download for IE7. See link:

    But this extension is also available for Firefox. See link:
    https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/3524/

    I think the ecosystem for Firefox and IE will decide who wins this battle. What do you think?

    No incentive, just news. Even though a lot of the people here have the good sense to use Firefox, there are a number of us who still have to support it, or produce products that have to be able to compatible with it. Yeah, it sucks, but such is life.

    And hey, let's not be closed-minded. Who knows, it may be worth trying out. *snicker*

    I think you're spot-on. A little to add though...

    Firefox is part of a much larger ecosystem as well, which brings some other players to the table. Every Flock user, every K-meleon user, and every Camino user is also a win for Firefox. In fact, anything that uses Gecko to render a webpage could even be considered a mutant form of Firefox (including any XULRunner app, such as Songbird. Yes, it can browse the web as well).

    In the scope of browser-vs-browser, you definitely nailed it. But in the scope of app-vs-app, Firefox is but a piece of an incredibly powerful and flexible platform that is just starting to mature...where as IE is just sitting there, like you said, trying to play catch-up.
