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.

He was not publicly saying anything.

Exactly. He did not apologize or deny that he held the same opinions even though those violate Mozilla's stated company policy.

It passed with 52% majority, so I guess there are lots of people left to harass.

If you act to take away someone's civil rights you have to deal with the consequences. You reap what you sow.
