Parent article: Mitchell Baker and the Firefox Paradox (Inc)
It seems to try telling us that Firefox is better that most other open source software, because they've tougher competition. Which is rich, considering where it's coming from.
Firefox started as a Mozilla fork with reduced fat and different functionality. In the Phoenix and Firebird days each release produced a noticeably faster and better application. Unfortunately that line of improvement has been abandoned long ago after it was embraced as the default browser by the Mozilla project.
I don't see much realistic and usable alternatives for Mozilla/Firefox. Konqueror depends on KDE, Opera is closed source, anything else out there for Linux or BSD users?
