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.

Farewell Firefox, welcome Chromium (the open source version...)
and I hope a lot of people will do the same.

i love of no matter what people at mozilla do some people like you will write some random crap like that.

eich leaving is 100% his decision, anything else is *actually* illegal under california's laws, in case you did not know.
eich donating to prop 8 is also 100% is decision.

Eck, in any possible outcoming this has nothing to do with the mozilla mission, with firefox, or with the thousands of people who make firefox happen DAILY.

Also, Chrome-mium - if anything - suffers from the exact same issues.

It's 100% a man's decision whether he does just about anything. The recent events that led up to this decision are what's troubling.

Indeed, I did not know it's illegal to fire someone, under California law.
