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.

I work in the financial industry developing systems with .NET/Java. It's was quite funny to read your accusations of Microsoft and .NET and your example of code that shed a tear of some guy. Well, it really made me cry of pain, seeing this super code when I compared this nightmare that is modern html/css/javascript with what we have in .net. So it's quite funny when people that know little about programming besides html and css claim about some dumbing down by microsoft or whatever. I would be more worried about dumbing down by FOSS with its alienation to anything they do not understand.
