We had a chance to chat with Johnathan Nightingale Mozilla’s Director of Firefox Engineering about Firefox’ current challenges, its opportunities, its rivals, trends and its future.
Mozilla’s Firefox experienced a pretty rapid turn of fortunes last year and is still dealing with the effects of a changing browser landscape today. The rise of Chrome, a more competitive Microsoft, an increasingly loyal Apple user base, the often-delayed release of Firefox 4, created a perfect storm against Mozilla that is affecting its market share and credibility. Johnathan Nightingale agreed to spend some time with us to talk about the current state of Firefox and its immediate future in a very competitive environment.
As spokesperson for Mozilla and as Director of Firefox Engineering, Johnathan Nightingale is one of the most influential people at Mozilla as far as the future of the Firefox browser is concerned. He has been working for Mozilla since 2007.
