Competition Is Necessary…and Wonderful

Crome's New Search Preview of Firefox v4b7

Over the past few months, Firefox has been smoked by Chrome, Safari and even IE9 (beta).  As of this morning, that finally changed.  The new Firefox 4 beta now showcases the new Jaeger Javascript engine.  And it is quite fast.

But the competition is not resting on its laurels.  There are new addons to preview search results w/o clicking through to the underlying page.  It’s a cool little feature that should help speed searches for many folks.  And it will certainly boost the page fetches for most sites.  I would guess that this will also boost the page rank for most Adsense sites.

So why do I care about these two browser features?  I care because it is proof that the browser competition is still active.  We will see brave new features and accelerated development as long as development stays active… and stays open to the public.

May the browser wars never cease.
