Good article on what OpenOffice could learn from Firefox



There’s a good writeup on what OpenOffice.org could learn from firefox. It raises some interesting points. One of which is that software can be designed to meet the needs of say, 60% of the market, the framework firefox has for extenstions helps that other 40% find a way that the browser can meet their needs.


He goes on to say that such an extension framework might be just the thing that OpenOffice.org needs to leapfrog past Microsoft Office. It’s interesting… I haven’t really compared the two before, but as I think about Firefox. I find myself somewhat excited by the features that Firefox gives that Explorer lacks. I really feel like it’s an upgrade to a users web browsing experience. OpenOffice.org doesn’t give me that kind of impression. OpenOffice is more of a workable substitute, they haven’t quite made it to the point that I would say I could be somewhat excited about “upgrading” from Microsoft Office to OpenOffice…. maybe an extension framework would help to “leverage the long tail” as the writer puts it.
