Mozilla & Gecko clones "On her weblog, Mozilla Corporation CEO Mitchell Baker has announced that Mozilla Thunderbird is to move to a "new, separate organizational setting" as the Mozilla Foundation continues to focus ever more closely on Firefox. While the Mozilla Foundation supports a number of projects, its taxable subsidiary the Mozilla Corp. is responsible for only Firefox and Thunderbird. However, it has become increasingly clear that Firefox is the priority. The resources allocated to Firefox dwarf those allocated to Thunderbird and recent projects such as the initiative to improve Mozilla support exclude Thunderbird."

Found on this page:

Nice mentality. After Internet Explorer dictatorship, Firefox dictatorship with more and more Firefox-only web sites on the web.

I don't see anything on there.

Oh, and what does Mozilla development going Firefox-only have anything to do with websites going Firefox-only? Apples and oranges.

Do you mean that they're only supporting Firefox or do you mean that IE wont run that page properly?

They mean their web site will only support Firefox from now on. At least I guess so.

Nice mentality. . . .

That notice was added because the site scripts are still being debugged (by me and others) for IE6 and IE7 compatibility. (The site runs on Tikiwiki and no-tables liquid layouts in dynamic CMS/wikis can be tricky in those browsers.) Keep in mind the site isn't at the rollout stage yet.

Obviously, presenting the site nicely to users of other browsers an important part of encouraging broader use of Firefox. I'm pretty sure the Mozilla people didn't mean this temporary notice to be interpreted as overall Firefox project policy. ;-)
