New NYT offering tilts towards Firefox

Microsoft and The New York Times looked pretty cozy this spring when they announced that the venerable newspaper would be the first star of a new on-screen reading application built for Windows Vista. The Times Reader was introduced at the American Society of Newspaper Editors meeting in Seattle, complete with some friendly banter between Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates and Times Publisher Arthur Sulzberger Jr.

Now comes another offering from The New York Times — My Times, a customizable news page that “works best on Firefox for Windows and the Mac,” The Times said in an email today, referring to the Web browser that is competing with Microsoft’s dominant Internet Explorer. The email invited a limited number of readers to test drive the new service.

My Times “also works on Internet Explorer for Windows,” the invitation noted.
