Christopher Blizzard, Firefox evangelist: "... they would not have done it, if we would have not built Firefox. And the same is true for Apple, they are doing a lot to keep up with us."
A couple of random facts to keep things on the ground:
- Opera 9.51 does 83 out of 100 on the Acid3 web compatibility test. Safari 3.1 does 75. Firefox 3.01 does 71. (All of them are the latest production versions today.)
- Example: on Picasaweb, Opera actually works (even though the site claims it is not actually not tested) whereas Firefox 3 does not (even though Picasaweb says it's supported).
- Example: Firefox is lagging behind in mobile. There are successful mobile browser products based on WebKit, Opera and IE deployed on millions of devices. Where's Firefox?
