How Firefox Panorama and Aza Raskin will shape the Web

Filed under
Moz/FF

When I visited the Mozilla offices in Mountain View, California, I met with three very important Mozillans. Aza Raskin, Creative Lead of Firefox; Vladimir Vukićević, Principal Engineer of Firefox; and Nick Nguyen, Mozilla's Director of Add-ons. Together, they form the spearhead that drives both the creative vision and development of Firefox, a browser that's now used by over 400 million users.

I picked the brains of all three and each offered up very different points of view -- different, but ultimately aligned. I don't know if an energizing thunderbolt struck down from the Board of Directors, or whether the appointment of Aza as Creative Lead made the difference, but one thing's for sure: Mozilla now has a unified vision of what Firefox is and what it can become.
