Dave Winer has an interesting post where he asks Facebook app or Firefox plug-in? 

Which is a more interesting platform -- Facebook or Firefox?

This was a topic of conversation at the Web 2.0 Summit last week in SF, not on stage, but in a LobbyConversation between myself and venture capitalist Bijan Sabet.

Bijan Sabet: "I like that Firefox developers don't have to live in a world where they lie awake at night worried that the platform company is going to make life hard for them."

You can guess my answer to the question so I won’t bother answering. I will point out that I doubt that the developers of Flock would agree with the statement that Firefox doesn’t do anything to screw developers on their platform. 

I also question anyone who claims that there are more opportunities to make money off of Firefox plugins than there are selling ads in your Facebook application.
