Firefox Faces Uphill Battle

I read this intresting little ‘bit of news over at eWeek.com this morning:

Despite handing out positive reviews over the latest version of the open-source Firefox Web browser, market watchers are saying that the Mozilla Foundation will need to publicize the product heavily in order to lure new users.

I hate to say that they are point out the obvious, but hey… that is what they are doing. No mater how obvious it is though, it is the truth. It should be intresting to see how the folks at Mozilla get the job done.
