This is a brutally honest, true article about the state of web browsers. It’s unfortunate the author unnecessarily said “went full retard” (a movie reference) because the rest of the post is dead on.
The stuff about Firefox rang especially true.
Let me first show my true colors: I root for Firefox’s success. I have been doing so since they made the first crack in Microsoft’s IE dominance and have been doing ever since. Not because I think they have the best browser, instead because of sentimental reasons: they are the only independent browser, guardians of an open, shared web. They have superior, human values compared to the rest. I want them to do well.
I couldn’t agree more. I love their values and want them to be successful, but as the author highlights they’ve got a tough row to hoe.
