Firefox future may not be so rosy

An opinion piece over at eWeek suggests that Firefox's future might not be as rosy as some may think. The author claims that Firefox is his "favorite browser ever," but still sees several problems with the project, including its patching infrastructure and developer burnout.

Here's the long and short of it. If the Mozilla Foundation and Firefox friends like Google don't start spending money—right now—to hire more programmers, more project managers and more servers, it won't matter how many ads in the New York Times Firefox supporters take out, Firefox will have already reached its high tide of popularity and we can only wait for the ebb to begin.
He could have a point.
