'I don't think there will be a big party, as we are all very busy putting the finishing touches to Firefox 1.5,' says the president of Mozilla Europe


The open source Firefox browser was launched a year ago today, but the celebrations are expected to be low-key.


Here's a funny conversation I had with one of our company's customer.

Customer: "Your program got error la in IE".

Me: "Huh?? You still use IE ah ?? That Spyware magnet??"

Custommer: "Here in office everybody use IE. Boss don't like to use funny browser like FireFox. IE is defacto browser - industry standard".

Me: "Ok. Your funeral. Let me fix the error and send back to you .."

IE still stand the bigger portion of the market, compared to any other browser. You have to accept it. Reason? It came with windows.

Yep. And I can't believe I visited this high security server room where you have to go thru two fireproof doors and a get visitor pass which requires two signatures from different departments. You know what?

Once I got into the room, I saw their operators using IE.

ActiveX worms will kill them one day - I'm very sure :)
