Mozilla's ‘Great or Dead’ philosophy may save bloated blimp Firefox

Firefox the king of add-ons

I have used Mozilla browsers since they were in the alpha stage, but I don't know what Pocket is or who the CEO is. As a developer, the important thing is Firefox/SeaMonkey's outstanding support for creating add-ons, leaving Chrome/Opera and Safari in the dust.

XUL is irrelevant these days unless you have an old add-on to maintain.

The only problem is that Mozilla have volunteer add-on reviewers so the reviews are a bottleneck.

Re: getting better and cheaper for the average dev

I am an exclusive Safari extension developer. Apple now wants to charge me for the same service that Mozilla, Google and Opera provide for free.

Here is the number of extensions in the galleries, counted by me: Chrome 23 585, Firefox 12 841, Thunderbird 1 199, Opera 895, Internet Explorer 858, Seamonkey 714, Safari 484, Firefox for Android 285.

I am originally from Sweden. There was a time, but it's long gone now, when Sweden granted asylum to US army defectors from the Vietnam war.

In defence of Comic Sans

Comic without Microsoft

I recall finding this font, "Comic Sans MS", in the 1990's, and I became interested, since I thought it was a Microsoft-free font (sans = without in French).

End of the line for ID cards

I like my id card

I don't know why some Brits don't like id cards. I was happy when official id cards were introduced in Sweden in 2005, especially now when I have emigrated.

What is wrong with the British banks?

I work with IT for a bank in Finland. We are expanding and hiring new staff for years now. One wonders what the British banks have done wrong.
