Firefox May Not Recover In 2012

Filed under

As I stumbled over a note from Mozilla’s developer staff today, I wondered how much impact feature delays in a rapid release process really have and whether delays in a 6-week release cycle matter or not? Firefox could use some good news, but there is not much that could cause some optimism in the near future. Nearly every major feature the browser could use today is delayed and the browser that Mozilla would need today won’t be available until the end of April.

There are not many words that can effectively sugarcoat Mozilla’s position in the browser market today. Chrome surpassed Firefox last month and has comfortably climbed above Firefox in the first few days of this month and now averages 26.75% share, which is more than 1 point above Firefox (25.46%).

It's likely that OpenStack will be subject to the same effect, becoming a viable option among a number of cloud infrastructures. Read more
