Leaving Mozilla, but not really

Yet another Firefox browser developer employee (thanks, Blake) has left, but this time not for Google. Bart Decrem has left to form a Palo Alto start-up called Round Two, though this time stays within the growing Mozilla development ecosystem. According to its release today, the company wants to make the Firefox web browsing experience "even more fun, safe and productive by offering a variety of user-friendly products and innovative services aimed at Firefox users. The company will launch initial products and services in the spring of 2005." Decrem headed marketing and business affairs for the Mozilla Foundation.


This post's lead is irresponsible and sensationalist. As you note at the end, Bart is not and has never been a developer--so what's up with the opening?

Guilty. Not a developer. But a success like Firefox takes all sorts of talent, not just engineering talent. The 500,000 Get Firefox buttons that are all over the web have contributed to the sense of inevitability. The new Mozilla.org web site has helped make people feel comfortable switching to Firefox. So it takes great technology and then we have to package that and get the story out.
