Mozilla & Gecko clones

Mozilla prides itself on being held to a different standard and, this past week, we didn't live up to it. We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: it's because we haven't stayed true to ourselves.

We didn’t act like you'd expect Mozilla to act. We didn't move fast enough to engage with people once the controversy started. We're sorry. We must do better.

Brendan Eich has chosen to step down from his role as CEO. He's made this decision for Mozilla and our community.

The only sensible move.

You can't see what this has to do with him being CEO of Mozilla? The role of CEO IS to be popular!

I LOL'd there. The role of a CEO is to manage a company. Most of the CEOs I've dealt with are anything but popular, and probably far less competent in that role than Mr. Eich would've been.
