What Mozilla does in 2011 essentially defines if they will even exist in 2012.
Chrome, however, is eating Firefox's lunch... and as much as I love FF, it really can't hold it's own against Chrome anymore in most cases sadly.
IE isn't competition... it's a joke. I'll take that browser seriously the day that it starts properly conforming to standards in a timely manner. Chrome, however, is eating Firefox's lunch... and as much as I love FF, it really can't hold it's own against Chrome anymore in most cases sadly. I think they're in need of a major rewrite to freshen things up. Of course if they can't monetize it anyway, I guess it doesn't matter.
I can only hope that they partner with HTC (or another sensible hardware manufacturer) to produce the Mozilla phone and that it becomes a hit.
Have you seen IE9? Its implementation of GPU acceleration is far more advanced than the next versions of Chrome and Firefox.
Microsoft claims it's because their nascent browser is using graphics hardware to accelerate page composition and the final desktop window composition as well as just content rendering. According to Johnson, "Based on their blog posts, the hardware-accelerated implementations of other browsers generally accelerate one phase or the other, but not yet both."
I'm just going off of what I've read, which at this point is Microsoft's claims. Take them with a grain of salt.
The facts are that Firefox takes advantage of the same Windows 7 APIs that Microsoft does to accelerate both the compositing and the rendering of Web content and that Mozilla provided test builds of Firefox, for folks like you, me, and Michael Muchmore, with this hardware acceleration well before Microsoft did.
Google has no real reason to buy Mozilla out.
