    Today's _New York Times_ has an article (free registration required,
    blah blah) about the progress of Firefox. It's mostly focused on the
    Windows context, and talks about the differences between Firefox and IE,
    as well as about some of the history of the "browser wars":

    <http://www.nytimes.com/2004/12/19/business/yourmoney/19digi.html>

    My favorite section from the article:

    'Mr. Schare of Microsoft does have one suggestion for those who cannot
    use the latest patches in Service Pack 2: buy a new personal computer.
    By the same reasoning, the security problems created by a car's broken
    door lock could be solved by buying an entirely new automobile. The
    analogy comes straight from Mr. Schare. "It's like buying a car," he
    said. "If you want to get the latest safety features, you have to buy
    the latest model."

    In this case, the very latest model is not a 2001 Internet Explorer, but
    a 2004 Firefox.'

    Here's a hint for getting around the registration. If you click on the
    link above directly who will be taken to the NYT registration site. Instead
    right click on the link and choose "copy shortcut." From there you can
    paste it into google toolbar if you have it or paste it into the search bar
    at google.com if you don't have the toolbar. You will get a message stating
    "sorry no information is available for URL blah, blah. If the URL is valid
    you can click on the click. Try it and you will be taken directly to the
    article.

    And you will have to do the same (copy the shortcut for page 2) in order to
    finish the article.

    Nice tip. Thanks
