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.

first jwz says that Netscape doesn't innovate. Then he complains When they scrap the old stuff in favor of nglayout and all of the consequences that follow (delays, no 4.5 release, etc). What's better-release 4.5 which is alot of work and gives us a netscape 5 which is really 4.5+ and screw the developers? Mozilla the Open Source Project didn't start yet. But it has to start right and that means we have to wait. It means going to XUL and a lean standards compliant engine. It means we have to be patient.
