mozilla.org has just announced that they have created a new non-profit organization, the Mozilla Foundation, to continue the management of the Mozilla source. The new foundation will be made up of current mozilla.org staff, along with other open source leaders, including Mitch Kapor, who will chair the foundation. To help with the foundation's costs, AOL has pledged 2 million dollars, along with hardware and other resources, and other companies, including IBM, Red Hat, and Sun, are also pledging support. More information can be found in the press release or in the newsgroup posting. More details when available.

Isn't it somewhat cluttered? I think there is too much information on one page, and also the news are gone from the front page (I know they are on a different URI, but even there, they look somewhat queerly; besides, shouldn't The Mozilla Foundation be mentioned there as well?) ... In addition, there are no noticeable links to the Releases page, where additional versions of packages are available. There is no charset metadata (or in HTTP Content-Type) in the head of the page, either, which in turn leads to some weird characters (and the W3C validator fails, which is not a good thing). To wrap up, all of the other sites are still featuring the old interface. Will this be addressed in the future, or is it as intended?

Certainly the graphical image is much better than before, however, there are still issues which should be dealt with. Can we hope for an improvement sometime later?
