Intersting..... How many people work on the browser at M$? 200? 300?

Mozilla has 16 people, and they make the best browser. Then again, Firefox has a supporting community.

Of course - they have balls. But it can only last so long

Nah - they have more public support. 8 times more people use Internet Explorer than Firefox.

"These bugs are all fixed in Firefox 1.0 and newer, and Thunderbird 0.9 and newer." Says so near the bottom of first article.

That's because IE came in a long time before Firefox. It's an extremely unfair comparison you're making. If Firefox has debuted at the same time as IE, the numbers wld be much much different from what we see now. There are at least a billion over Internet users in the world. They can't all just switch browser all at once. Some of them haven't even heard of any other browser than IE. It takes time.

If Firefox had released when Internet Explorer had it wouldn't be a fad anymore and wouldn't have been picked up at all because bugs weren't so constant, if at all, and Windows came with Internet Explorer - downloading Firefox would have been a dreadful waste of time especially at 14k, 28k, even 56k.
