CNET News Daily Podcast: Firefox is five

Today on the podcast: Google buys ad tech company, CPU sales bounce back, the iPhone gets Rickrolled, and we talk with CNET's Stephen Shankland about Firefox' fifth birthday.

On November 9, 2004, Firefox 1.0 launched to fight the growing dominance of Microsoft's Internet Explorer, the browser that had essentially killed the first major consumer browser, Netscape Navigator. The project, originally named Phoenix to symbolize rebirth from Netscape's ashes, has now clawed its way back to account for nearly a quarter of the browser usage today. It's been an eventful five years. We discuss Mozilla, Firefox, and the future of browsers with CNET News senior writer Stephen Shankland.

Also on the podcast: Google buys advertising technology company but may loose content, CPU sales bounce back, and the iPhone gets Rickrolled.
