sopssa writes “Firefox’s Co-Founder Blake Ross is skeptical about the future of Firefox. He says that ‘the Mozilla Organization has gradually reverted back to its old ways of being too timid, passive and consensus-driven to release breakthrough products quickly.’ Within the past year Chrome has been steadily increasing its marketshare, along with the other WebKit-based browsers like Safari. Meanwhile Mozilla’s (outgoing) CEO says that while Firefox is more competitive than ever, they’re looking forward to their mobile version of Firefox. ‘Clearly, both are annoyed at what has happened to their former renegade web browser. But, by many accounts, Firefox is no longer considered to be the light, open alternative it once was.’”
