Mozilla has released a cute little poster:


Its interesting to see Mozilla hide behind the “open standards” banner while they continue to innovate by implementing new features that vary from being based on tenuous open “standards” to straight-up proprietary (though transparent) solutions.

The pessimists would say that this whole “We’re not evil, our interests are your interests” marketing tactic that Mozilla and Google employ is simply good marketing (gee, I’m sitting at MTS07 right now, why would I say that?); the optimists posit that these guys are fighting for the community and for “the forces of good.”

I’m not quite sure where I fall at the moment in judging these guys. In a way, its refreshing to deal with a company like Microsoft where you can clearly judge their motives based on the simplicity of their business model.
