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.

If you truly think that discrimination is on the same level as wearing the wrong brand of clothes, you really ought to educate yourself a bit more on civil rights.

Crazy world. You're bullying and discriminating a person because he has traditional view on sex. Did he fired anyone based on their view on sex?
Mozilla is a maker of software, not a freaking anal toys.
