Mozilla's Big Comeback

Filed under
Moz/FF

Mozilla is now something of a venerable institution in the open source world - the first release of browser code by Netscape took place back in 1998. Even Firefox is eight years old, which seems pretty incredible.

Given that unusual longevity, it's no wonder that the project has seen its ups and down. I wrote about a particularly dark period a couple of years ago, when people thought that Firefox and Mozilla had peaked in terms of their influence. Six months later, I was reporting on the plans of Mozilla's new CEO; there was clearly a lot starting to happen, but how would it pan out?

Now we are beginning to see, and I'd say that things have gone pretty well.
