Recalling Microsoft's monopoly on browsers in the early 2000s before Firefox came, Beard Kravshistorie may be repeating itself. Only this time is Google on the reins. According to Mozilla boss: "If a product like Chromium has enough market share, it will make it easier for web developers and businesses to decide not to worry if their services and websites work with anything but Chrom."
