Blake’s post is about something I see for a long time. A Firefox complex. Opera is the most vulnerable, but there are others. A lot of them.
Firefox is a great success. It’s easy to spread the word about it, it’s easy to promote it, it’s easy to use it, and a lot people are happy with it.
One would think that it’s a great example of a free competitor. It should give hope to other projects, saying “hey! It’s possible to win this race!”.
But not everyone is happy with us (and I’m not talking about proprietary monopolist). Blake is right, that most of them fails to understand the reason of our success. And with time passing by, they’re trying to invent some reasons, which mixed with their frustration leads to anger.
