Is Firefox toast?

So, what's going on with Mozilla--and, thereby, Firefox?

Ed Bott predicted earlier this year that Firefox is toast. Even if Microsoft does step in and save Mozilla for another year or two (or Google renews its own deal and keeps Firefox alive), the writing does seem to be on the wall.

Based on the trends of the past two years, the browser wars will soon be between Microsoft and Google. And then, beyond that, it will be interesting to see whether Facebook, Amazon, or Apple make a truly serious push.
