Daniel Glazman Starting Company to Develop Composer

Thursday September 18th, 2003

Ex-Netscape employee Daniel Glazman has announced that he is starting a company to continue the development of Composer, the Mozilla Web page editor. In a Glazblog posting that also covers meals with ex-colleagues and the availability of nose drops, Daniel outlines his new venture: "I am now in the process of starting my own company here in France to continue working on Composer. This company will develop software solutions for the World Wide Web and offer a variety of services around web underlying technologies and open-source tools. I think we will even become W3C member... Wish me good luck!"

Daniel has worked on the Editor portion of the Mozilla codebase for several years and was employed by Netscape Communications Corporation from November 2000 until July 2003. Earlier this year, he announced his intention to continue maintaining Composer, which will eventually become a standalone application like Mozilla Firebird and Mozilla Thunderbird.

I know Daniel for years, and have been his neighbour in the Netscape office these last 2 years. Daniel is smart, and if he starts a company, I'm positive that he has a plan (and a good one). His announcement is excellent news for Composer, and I wish him the best of luck in this new adventure. Open-Source needs more contributors like Daniel, and the Web needs a decent, open-source HTML editor. Go Composer, Go Daniel !
