Believe it or not, this post is not about the browser wars. We come very close to discussing them, but that is not the point, there are plenty of other posts and plenty of other times for that. It just hit me though: anyone that has every used Mozilla Foundation’s popular web browser, Firefox, knows that their slogo is “taking back the web.”
No problem, er, but, just wondering here: “Since when did the web ever belong to Firefox or Mozilla anyhow?” A more appropriate catch-phrase would be Hijacking the Web, or Stealing the Web, or Redirecting the Web This Way, or even The Web the Firefox Way. Don’t get me wrong, I like Firefox, but unless by this they mean putting the web in the hands of opensource…. wait, nope, it was never theirs either.
What do you think? Does it do the trick?
Either way, in all reality its MS’ Battle to take back the web. If Firefox wants share. OK by me, just get your terminology straight.
