Warning: This post was published more than 12 years ago.
I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!
But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:
- My views might have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post.
- This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
- Factual information might be outdated.
- Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.
Many thanks for your understanding.
This is a good thing. Microsoft has been stationary and unimaginative since it beat Netscape into submission. A bit of competition from Firefox might make them innovate once again – and maybe even consider building a secure browser.
Firefox is a brilliant browser, and I do use it from time to time. But unfortunately some sites I use require Active X controls, and I’m far too lazy to use different browsers for different sites. So I would urge the sites that require Active X to updated themselves, and really open up the competition.
