+ - Why Mozilla needs to pick a new fight Read more: -> 2

nk497 (1345219) writes "Mozilla has succeeded in improving the browser world, and its rivals have outstripped it in terms of features. So what's the point of Firefox, then, wonders Stuart Turton. He suggests it could turn its community of developers to better use than battling it out for broswer market share. "I think Mozilla has a lot more to offer as a kind of roaming software troublemaker. The company has already proven itself brilliant at pulling a community together, offering it direction and spurring innovation in a lifeless market. Now that browsers are healthy, wouldn’t it be brilliant if Mozilla started a ruck elsewhere?" And where better to start than the stagnant office suite arena: "Imagine if Mozilla decided tomorrow to build an office suite. Imagine all those ideas. Imagine how brilliant that could be. Just imagine. Now imagine Firefox 4. Honestly, which one of those are you most excited by?""

    Firefox 4... Why should mozilla drop its efforts on Firefox when its still a better browser than its competitors. Chromes extensions are not as good as Firefox's.

Behind every great computer sits a skinny little geek.
