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.

you didn´t understand. If I promote a law to increase the weapons control (something I believe in, by the way) I will be affecting someone´s right to buy them, if I don´t want bars or sex shops in my neighborhood I limit someone's right to establish a business. In a democracy, people's rights are in conflict, so the rights have internal and external limits.
