"If you think about it, this really shows the power of
open-source software. The U.S. Federal Courts couldn't stop
Microsoft, even after they found Microsoft guilty of running a
monopoly, which had been used to crush Netscape. After what
amounted to a slap on the wrist, Microsoft continued on its way and
Netscape continued its death spiral.
"But, because the code lived on in Firefox, open-source
developers were able to improve on it. Even before Firefox 1.0 was
released in July 2004, power users were already moving to it.
Today, over 22% of all users have moved to Firefox, according to
Net Application's Market Share."
