Mozilla Foundation First Anniversary Today

Thursday July 15th, 2004

Today is the first anniversary of the creation of the Mozilla Foundation, after mozilla.org was spun off from America Online/Netscape. mozilla.org currently has a small message talking about what's been accomplished in a year — check out the front page of mozilla.org to view it today, or see it archived on Mozilla Foundation President Mitchell Baker's blog. We'd like to just say congratulations, and here's to another good year!

myself, i have been happy with progress. Microsoft is Glacial-paced. Mozilla is Rabbit-paced. may not be ferrari-paced, but considering how many features they add and how many bugs get fixed (and how QUICKLY they get fixed) i cannot complain. looking back seeing where we are now with 1.7.1 compared to 1.4 compared to 1.0.2; just amazing. microsoft cannot even develop simple patches at that rate, let alone add features (when they do it seems to mostly introduce more security flaws). for a volunteer open-source not-for-profit (or whatever it is called) they do well. MS spends billions developing a disaster; mozilla for free gives away good product with what i think is rapid development, with minimal "stall" time. for a freebie, they are a godsend.
