Safari to 47%: No says Andreessen

Says Marc Andreessen in a Wired interview:

Andreeseen: I think it's so funny that Apple comes out with a new browser in 2003. Where were you guys six years ago? I wish them the best, but it's not as if you're about to see Safari go from 0 percent market share to 47 percent.

I think Safari can reasonably easily capture 47% of the Mac OS X browser market share. If he means across platforms, of course not. If he means across all Mac systems, he's still correct. But that's exactly why this is a poor quote: we have no idea what he means.

  1. The article also got the fact that 'Mosaic' wasn't the first web browser wrong... The first browser was called 'WorldWideWeb' and was written by Tim Berners-Lee.
