Mozilla Is Ten Years Old!

I will let Mitchell Baker, the chief lizard wrangler, tell you the story of Mozilla, the bringer of this browser, Firefox, that I am using to write this post and Thunderbird, my day to day email application.
March 31, 1998 is the date that Mozilla was officially launched. It’s the date the first Mozilla code became publicly available under the terms of an official open source license and a governing body for the project — the Mozilla Organization — began its public work. It’s always been known in Mozilla parlance as “3/31.” We’ll be celebrating Mozilla’s 10 year anniversary throughout 2008. Today I want to look at our first ten years, and a bit at the next ten years.
