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.

Thom, as much as I respect you, your comments are a big dissapointment to me. Not that my opinion will matter to you ;-), but anyway - what's discriminating about having ANY opinion? My good friend is a gay, and talking to him, he does not wish for any idiotic fanatical reactions as happened to the Mozilla's guy. It has nothing to do with the discrimination - it is all about some small fanatical group of ppl, overreacting, that's just all ...
