    Whither Firefox?

    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.
