Firefox Is For "Regular" Users, Not Businesses 555

nk497 writes "Some have argued that Mozilla's switch to a faster release cycle has made it more difficult for companies to use Firefox, but the open-source browser maker isn't too bothered, according to one employee. Asa Dotzler, community coordinator for Firefox marketing and founder of Mozilla's quality assurance scheme, said Firefox is for 'regular users' — not businesses. 'Enterprise has never been (and I'll argue, shouldn't be) a focus of ours,' he said. 'A minute spent making a corporate user happy can better be spent making many regular users happy. I'd much rather Mozilla was spending its limited resources looking out for the billions of users that don't have enterprise support systems already taking care of them.'"

    "Lots of business don't in fact need ActiveX for legacy junk. "

    says the man who does not try to control the board room AV system from the web GUI. Yes even a brand new install of a crestron AV system requires the Active X abortion from Microsoft.

    Let's take a look at the web UI of the security cameras..... Oh wait, Active X control and IE required....

    Let's connect to the HVAC system to look at...... Active X required, oh COME ON!

    the Active X garbage is still everywhere all over corporate America because the Infrastructure requires it BECAUSE The companies making the hardware have not bothered to update it for 10 years.
