Richard MacManus form ReadWriteWeb recently got a chance to interview Chris Beard, Mozilla's Chief Innovation Officer. In this article Beard discussed what Firefox is doing to keep its flagship product Firefox competitive against the likes of Google Chrome. Even though Google has claimed that Chrome performs better and is safer than any web browser out there, Beard mentions that Firefox is constantly working on the latest innovative versions of the browser that reduce crashes and improves performance.
Mozilla's vision for the future is to 'help its users better navigate and manage an increasingly complex world.' In part of keeping up with this vision, Mozilla has integrated many social elements into its browser like Flock, the Awesome Bar, and Ubiquity. It looks as if we are still lightyears away from capturing the ideal web surfing experience.
