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.

NOT freedom of speech

We are not talking about freedom of speech here. We are talking about an ACTION with the purpose of impeding other people's civil rights. I suspect that people who don't like this are homophobic but unwilling to admit it.
I know, I know, this will be modded down to hell. So much for freedom of speech.
