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.

Jamie Zawinski hasn't been involved in the coding of the NGLayout browser at all. He knows next to nothing about what is going on with the current codebase, and his resignation (timed nicely to coincide with the anniversary) is nothing more than a stunt from a showman who loves to play the media.

His departure is completely irrelevant. The project will get along just fine without him. It already was.
