Enterprise Applications: eWEEK Labs Looks Back at 7 Years of the Mozilla Browser
June 5 marked the seventh anniversary of the release of the first Mozilla Web browser. (The Mozilla open-source project itself turned 10 early in 2008.) In its early days, Mozilla was a hopeless competitor to Microsoft's then-dominant Internet Explorer, which had more than 96 percent of the market at the time. Few people held much hope that Mozilla's open-source browser would do much to stem IE's dominance, let alone that it would last.
