Corel Partners with Mozilla, but It Hardly Matters

Corel announced yesterday that Mozilla’s Firefox Web browser will be bundled with Corel’s WordPerfect Office X3-Home Edition 2007, which includes software for word processing, spreadsheets, CD/DVD burning, photo and video applications, and security. It is priced at US$79.

In incarnations and years past, Corel has taken repeated runs at the Microsoft Office juggernaut, all to little or no effect. I suspect Corel’s impact will be negligible again this time around, especially now that web-based applications are becoming richer and more compelling as low-end alternatives to personal-productivity application suites.
