Mozilla: The Greatest Tech Company Left Behind
Watching Mozilla sink is a real shame. As someone who uses Firefox everyday for my job, I will be sad to see such a well considered set of developer tools die. But the feeling goes deeper than that. I once saw the growth of Firefox as the growth of the web standards movement, the bellwether of a healthy and open web. Mozilla was the underdog of that era and against all odds it became the browser everyone was talking about. To watch the whole product fall from grace because of mismanagement is an uncomfortable way to mark the passage of time.
