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.

oh get off the fear of the so-called "thought police". the thought police are the uninformed on the internet snarking their uninformed opinions all over.

i don't know what this guy said, i don't care, but the board of directors sure did. i don't want any company that's making an 'open-standards' browser to show any bias towards any one group.

he must have cared enough too to step down.

company's aren't people. thought police don't exist.

it's just the strength of opinion, and if the non-work opinions of your ceo upset partners or employees, they have to go.

i never cry for millionaires asked to go somewhere else to make more millions.

you should cry for the people really struggling, not golden parachute having dotcom yuppies.
