If you have been reading this blog, you probably already know that Firefox, the new version of the formerly-known-as-Firebird browser, has been released
. You probably also know what's the deal with the name
and the logo
. You probably have no idea why these names look like the NATO codename for russian fighters
. You probably also suspect that I'm using it from the very first day it was released. Lots of people are doing it already
But if you ask a random (computer-literate) person, it's highly likely that they have no idea whatsoever about Firefox, Foxfire, Mozilla or Camino. Even if you look at the stats of your own blog, probably less than 10% of your users browse using non-IE browsers.
I am not going to say that the majority is right (in this case), just the fact that the blogosphere is clearly not
a cross section of society, not even a cross section of the internet. It's something that is clearly biased towards some topics, one of them being non-IE browsers.
