Google Chrome's benefit for Mozilla Firefox

Mozilla Firefox IconImage via WikipediaMozilla release Firefox 3.1 beta 1 today.

Mozilla had been costing for a while. IE ceased to be challenger. Google Chrome has taken over that role (at least for now). If Google Chrome never gets more than 1% of the market, I would still call it a success by giving the FireFox developers the necessary kick in the pants.
