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.

I've had respect for jwz in his past statements, but to call the Mozilla project a "failure" at this stage of the game is wrong.

Mozilla has had missteps, but to call it a failure at this point is like saying that there's no need to put any more effort into it. I hope no one takes this to heart, because I don't want to be using IE the rest of my life (or Opera for that matter). If it came down to that, the Web would lose all its allure.

I will continue to believe in the Mozilla project because they have shown me no reason not to, and because the alternative is unthinkable.
