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.

Yeah, speaking of the way JWZ called Mozilla a failure, I've read dozens of articles on the Mozilla.Org project and Gecko. *NOT ONE* of these articles had anything bad to say about the browser being built, all were enthusiastic about the standards compliance, and the CSS1 support, and the sheer fantastic speed of the Lizard. The closest that they came to a put-down was when they said "We're so sorry we won't be able to see this for some time yet, it's still being developed".

IMHO, that's not an insult. That's an accolade.

How can Mozilla be a failure when every single review gushes about it? When 5.0 comes out, it'll do more than level the playing field: it'll kick the MS team right off the map.
