Interview with Mozilla CEO John Lilly

By on July 22, 2008, 3:05 PM
Firefox has come a long way since its debut in 2004, from the introduction of tabbed browsing and pop-up blocking in early builds to more recent features such as improved page rendering and anti-phishing protection in its latest 3.0 incarnation. Its adoption has grown steadily since inception, mostly at the expense of Internet Explorer, and now holds approximately 16% global usage share of web browsers.

Just before the launch of Firefox 3 in June, Wired sat down with Mozilla’s CEO John Lilly to talk about future plans for the browser. They’ve just recently posted the interview where they mention a couple of things worth noting, such as Lilly’s views on competition from Apple in both the desktop and mobile fronts as well as Mozilla’s dependence on advertising revenue from Google.

Didn't one of the older articles say it was something like 23 percent?

I never really liked Firefox before as it always had some rendering problems. But I tried this new 3.0 version and I love it. I got ad block plus installed and a few other add on goodies like colorful tabs and it is so awesome and fast. I though ads popping out in my face was something you had to live with when I used IE. So glad I took a chance and now I sing the Firefox praise to everyone I know. Oh and try the reminder fox ad-on. My brother wrote that and its so awesome. It is a reminder system built into your web browser. Way better than office if you just want to be reminded things easily.
