Editorial Hands up if you use Firefox. Have used it? Know about it? Heard of it? 'Sites up and down the World Wide Web today will be celebrating five years of Firefox. When I sat down to write this I worried about having to list the history of its features and landmark events and the news of the past five years. Other sites will be comprehensively doing that, there is nothing I can add to that list that Google can't surmise. Instead I will be telling you what Google does not know, my story of Firefox and what Firefox has meant to all of us.

Firefox is the past...

Firefox is simply the past. The browser made its way to mainstream thanks to IE incompetences. Google Chrome arrived to supply what users were really wanting: Less UI and more web. Now I can't live without Chrome. It's such a great idea. And in 5 years Firefox never thought of that. A whole entire community, the Mo community, did not have one single person that would rise up and speak against the bloated UI and bloated code Firefox turned out to be. Now suffer well.

And when Google Chrome OS hits the streets, I would be very, *VERY* careful, if I were Ubuntu. Because Ubuntu is not really learning with Windows mistakes... (I would say, GNOME & KDE guys are not learning Windows mistakes either...)
