LinuxWorld: Mozilla from a distance

“Hey, what’s up with Mozilla? Is it dead? Dying? About to be

success story? Joe Barr muses on these and other Mozilla-related
questions in this week’s Version Control.”

“Whether or not Mozilla is a failure, or whether or not it is an

software revolution (since it is half commercial and half
volunteer) is left for the future to tell us. At this point, all I
can say with certainty is that it remains a controversial
topic.”
