For now, I'm skeptical. My thoughts are that:
- It is a way for the Mozilla Foundation to avoid disclosing all their finances. As a non-profit, I think they must make their finances public.
- They are now going to be playing on the same playing field that Microsoft is playing on and they can't win on that field. They lost when they were Netscape and they will lose again. The can, however, win if they stick to the non-profit FLOSS field. (There is probably a good quote related to this in The Art of War...)
- This is going to screw up the momentum and good will that the Mozilla products currently enjoy.
If you are looking for a browser, I recommend the non-commercial SeaMonkey suite, which I discuss in my blog item titled SeaMonkey Suite 1.0.1 and Send This Page.
