To cap the day off, since tomorrow is the day our boy Firefox is supposed to come out, here’s the 3rd collection of Firefox articles, coming, of course, after part 1 & part 2.

Can Mozilla Beat Godzilla?
”An increasing number of individuals, businesses and governments are beginning to see the advantage of open source software. ... I have no idea whether Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates stays up at night worrying about his empire but, if he does, he may very well be losing sleep over the Mozilla Foundation.”
Mozilla vs. Microsoft
”Although increasing defection from Internet Explorer isn’t a reason for Microsoft shareholders to panic, it does represent a slow slippage in users’ trust. Meanwhile, as the hacker community’s favorite foe, Microsoft has got its work cut out for it as far as making users feel secure again — and eventually, that could be a threat to the top line.”
I Love Firefox But Can’t Escape Explorer
”If I want to use the online banking services, I have to use IE. Why? No good reason I can fathom. Heaven knows IE isn’t more secure than Firefox (oh, were it so!). I suspect they simply didn’t bother to check other browsers when they built their site. Then again, customer service and banks often don’t seem to go hand in hand.”
Firefox aims for 10 percent of Web surfers
”Netscape open-sourced the source code to ‘harness the power’ of the open-source community. Now, six years later, this vision is finally coming into fruition. To get over the finish line we needed a non-profit organisation, which allows us to build new partnerships and do innovative marketing.”
Grassroots campaign for Firefox
”Later this month or early next, the New York Times will run a full-page ad for a free, open source Web browser called Firefox, which continues to make inroads against Microsoft’s Internet Explorer.”
(Scott’s note: this links to page that offers a 5-minute Real Audio file of the radio interview on Future Tense, a public radio tech show that’s always worth checking out.)
