FireFox Developers Riding the Wave

The publicity avalanche surrounding FireFox continues unabated. News.com profiles developers at the forefront of the FireFox developer movement and explains how some crafty developers are taking advantage of Mozilla's open-source architecture to generate closed-source commercial products.

"Business is pretty crazy right now," said Pete Collins, who last year founded the Mozdev Group in anticipation of demand for private Mozilla development work. "With the popularity of Firefox and the economy rebounding, we've been swamped. We don't even advertise--clients find us and provide us with work."

How cool is that? I'm thinking this is just the tip of the iceberg, folks. I can tell you that I am definitely willing to pay some bucks in order to have a powerful browsing experience. Microsoft's years of neglect have only compounded that feeling of frustration and obsolescence that IE users experience these days.

I've even found a few new extensions since my last post about FireFox. I've also played around with FireFox's more advanced options, and I can now replicate the functionality of my former favorite browser, NetCaptor. So, bye bye, NetCaptor. All of this is made possible by a rock-solid open-source web browser that simply blows IE away. It's so good, and even better than I thought it would be.

Oh, and I got my FireFox t-shirt last week. Yes, I think that fully qualifies me as a geek. :)

There's even a FireFox blog. With all this glowing publicity about the upstart browser, I think we're about to see another "Halloween memo" from Microsoft pretty soon. Will 2005 be the year of Google and Firefox vs. Microsoft. Get your tickets now!
