    By setting up Firefox as a standalone product organization, we will also be able to bring more focus to our continual efforts to improve the Firefox experience for everyone who uses it. Firefox is already a leader in foundational qualities like speed and privacy, and now we will be able to faster in developing solutions that bring more useful tools and more joyful experience to our users. Our recent announcement of new Firefox features is just the start, as we close in on Firefox’s 20th birthday in November.

    Oh my God! A press release from the Mozilla foundation that actually talks about the browser! I’m glad to see they’re acknowledging the one thing that keeps them relevant

    Can somebody translate? What’s the actual news? Are they firing a bunch of people who were previously leading all these projects, or what?

    Everything that accelerates our path to the future is terrible because the future is very dark. Bad decision from Mozilla here unfortunately

    Let’s hope this enables direct donations to Firefox and not to some sjw activities or Baker’s salary/bonus

        It has SJ in the description

        Mozilla, partners, and participants will explore threats AI poses to democracy and social justice https://foundation.mozilla.org/en/blog/togetherness-and-solidarity-explore-the-mozfest-house-amsterdam-program/

        While somebody needs to do this, somebody also needs to do the browser development. And Mozilla has been neglecting and deliberately decimating firefox market share with stupid decisions. Funding Mozilla meant funding everything else except Firefox.

        This way we may get the chance to fund exclusively Firefox and not other nonsense.

          Damn straight, Browsers shouldn’t deal with social justice issues, they should deal with working to destroy minorities lives and enforce fascism, narking on the browsing history of those who deny the status quo. /s

          The Mozilla Foundation is doing that. They legally cannot focus on browser development. Donations to the Mozilla Foundation go to the Mozilla Foundation.

          The Mozilla Corporation is making the changes. It has zero control over the Mozilla Foundation. The Mozilla Corporation does not accept donations and is a for-profit company.
