Down the road, far far down the road, lies the next release of Mozilla’s Firefox web browser. We all know Firefox as the alternative to Microsoft’s Internet Explorer on Windows systems and the alternative to Apple’s Safari on Macintosh systems.
But is it really far far down the road? November 2007 is the ‘tentative’ date of release for Firefox v3. Do we really care about software that is being released 7 months in the future? Yes! Should we plan for its release now? Yes, we should. Should we budget for its release now? Yes, we should. But how? Good question.
Based on past experiences and looking as far back as just a few months ago to Internet Explorer 7’s full release, we should have experienced first hand the scoping, the manpower and the testing necessary to accommodate a new release of a major viewing web browser.
What browser do you use most?
Let’s be prepared. Let’s make our web presence deliver a seamless experience to our users in a way that makes upgrades easy to swallow. We, as providers will be happy. Our customers will be happy. And our Return on Internet will be enhanced.

* Installing is a snap and you are ready in two minutes.
