Mozilla: "Firefox OS is a huge and scary step"


derStandard.at: After years of constant growth current market trends show a slight downwards trend for Firefox, did Google outpace you with Chrome?

Dave Mason: Let's talk about those numbers first of all. The thing that is actually never shown is how the internet is still growing as a whole, as it reaches areas of the world where it wasn't available before. Plus we have phone usage, so those are all new installations (or even new users). So yes: If you look at the market shares we seem to be losing, but the number of Firefox users still continues to grow.

derStandard.at: What are the key selling points for Firefox in comparison to other browsers? Why should someone make the switch from Chrome or IE?
