Mozilla: Enterprise has never been a focus of ours

Mozilla responds to complaints that its new, faster release schedule for Firefox makes it difficult for businesses to keep up with the Web browser's evolution.

Enterprise deployments have never been a key market for Firefox, Mozilla's director of the browser, Asa Dotzler, has said.

Dotzler's comments were made yesterday, in response to criticism from IT managers who said the newly accelerated Firefox release schedule was causing problems for businesses trying to keep up with the rapid pace of the browser's development. Firefox 5 launched on Wednesday, just three months after the release of Firefox 4.

"We get about 2 million Firefox downloads per day from regular user types," Dotzler wrote, describing enterprise downloads as "really just a drop in the bucket, fractions of fractions of a percent of our user base."

"Enterprise has never been--and I'll argue, shouldn't be--a focus of ours," he said.
