Comment Re:How does firefox maintain competitive advantage (Score 1) 465

What incentive would they have to hold code back? They are bundling it with OSX. It's built into the iPhone. Are there really that many people that are eschewing Safari and downloading the Webkit nightly builds or OmniWeb that they're going to lose money from directing Google searches? Or are you suggesting that they're worried about Firefox stealing the code? I just don't see the reasoning for it.

I think it's a valid assumption. I would wager the majority of the population didn't have a clue about how the electoral college worked until, oh, say the 2000 election. So I have a hard time believing the apathy is over the existence of the electoral college which has mirrored the popular vote in all but 2 elections.
