Is this Firefox month at Microsoft? Every time you turn around the company’s launching more stuff that works with the open source browser.
Recent Firefox-friendly releases include:
— A new Windows Media Player plugin for Firefox that appeared online Friday and was announced Monday.
— Silverlight, the Flash killer Microsoft also showed off Monday.
— Interactive Media Manager, a content management system for the entertainment industry.
It’s not a surprise if you read the Port 25 blog written by Microsoft’s open-source crew.
Still, the company has a ways to go, analyst Matt Rosoff told Linux Insider. He noted that Windows Live and Office Live didn’t have non-Microsoft browser support when they launched. Rosoff’s ending quote:
“If Microsoft really wants to be taken seriously as an Internet player, it should ensure that new online services are cross-browser at launch.”
