Mozilla Foundation Holds Future Strategy Talks with GNOME Foundation

Monday April 26th, 2004

Slashdot is reporting that the Mozilla Foundation has held talks with the GNOME Foundation to discuss future collaboration. The minutes of the meeting, which took place via teleconference last Wednesday, reveal that the discussions covered the integration of Mozilla with GNOME, strategies to combat Microsoft Longhorn technologies (especially XAML), duplication of technology between the two projects and the default Linux browser. The meeting follows Brendan Eich's earlier comments about how the Mozilla project can move forward with GNOME. Exactly how closely the two projects will work together is still being debated. The Mozilla Foundation is keen to form an official alliance with GNOME, while founder of the Galeon and Epiphany GNOME browser projects Marco Pesenti Gritti is pushing for a full merger.

Well said. I agree, Ben desirves some huge respect for what he has done to Firefox amongst many complaints/fights/etc. he's kept strong and done what he thinks is best for Firefox. I or others might not agree with some UI decisions or other aspects, but that is not relevent. What is, is that he has "the vision" and has kept track to it despite what others think. He is sure to make an incredible product out of Firefox. You are right, Ben ROCKS!
