Mozilla Gets Down to Business With Slow-Burn Firefox

Filed under
Moz/FF

Six months ago, Mozilla’s Asa Dotzler — one of the original members of the team that built the Firefox browser — made it quite clear that the open source outfit wasn’t interested in helping businesses. Their only aim, he said, was serve individual web surfers. “Enterprise has never been (and I’ll argue, shouldn’t be) a focus of ours,” Dotzler said.

But things have changed.

On Tuesday, Mozilla announced that it will answer the complaints of big business users, providing a new version of Firefox that it promises to support for a full year. This summer, the organization had switched Firefox to a six-week release cycle, and IT departments using the open source browser complained that they couldn’t keep up with the pace.
