JWZ Resigns

Thursday April 1st, 1999

It is a bittersweet day for the Mozilla community, as while the first anniversary party for Mozilla is on going, News.com is reporting, and Jamie Zawinski has confirmed, that he is leaving AOL/Netscape, as well as the Mozilla Organization.

This comes as a blow, as Jamie was one of the key leaders of Mozilla.org, and brought about its formation in the first place. Jamie will be missed, and we wish him luck.

Let me quote one of the postings at SlashDot:

I found it amusing that MS was winning the browser war partly through it's bundling and all that, but partly by writing a better browser - NOT a typical MS approach. So Netscape acted somewhat Microsoftian and Microsoft acted, well, more normal. An IE3 download was better than an NS4 download. Of course when they started bundling with Windows w/ IE3&4 they went full tilt to monopoly abuse, but that's different. My credentials, btw: employee #14 at Netscape, even before jamie. NCSA before that. And long since departed. ~mark
