In Mitchell Baker's initial proposed set of 2010 goals, the fourth goal was:
4. Continue Firefox mindshare and marketshare momentum
Question: How to Keep Other Browsers from Overtaking Firefox?
How do you plan to make sure no other browser will over take Firefox and become #2 browser (if not #1)? I’m not worried about Firefox disappears, but I’m starting to see more and more people prefer “other browsers” instead of Firefox, and we all know the Webkit has some advantages over Gecko.
Right, this is a key point to stay focused on. Sometimes people think the browser focus is passe, that Firefox has "won." We need to remain vital. I think that the answers to the question you ask are part of the next level of the goals work -- how to achieve the goal. I've been interested to see that there has been very little discussion of this goal, of the need for Firefox to remain central. I feel this of course, I had expected someone to question it.
