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.

Well that just about covers it all doesn't it?

In the long run, no one except a few individuals and the media will have benefited from this brouhaha.

Eich, a founder of Mozilla itself, is now gone. And I truly wonder how well things will go after this sordid affair is finally put behind them.

Boundaries were violated and trust was broken. Those are hard truths to overcome as they move forward.
