More Firefox 2 Coverage and Pics

Is Firefox 2.0 a slam dunk? Well, the folks at eWeek don’t think so. I am still happy with how things look, and so are the folks at Lifehacker. Go check out Lifehacker for some more pictures of the guts and soul of the newest edition of browser in question. I think we are reaching the point where some folks in the media Online almost want Firefox to fail. I guess they think we can’t let our idols get too powerful.

Firefox’s 9 Month Outlook

I read a very interesting outlook on where Firefox is heading in the near future this morning. Now the regular user might not care too much, they just want it to work. It is neat to look ahead though for those of us who like to see what the future might hold.

I heard a few questions yesterday about the future of Firefox and its product goals, differentiating factors, and its positioning against Microsoft and its Internet Explorer browser.

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.
