Where Did Firefox Come From?

Ben Goodger:
The story of Mozilla is long and rich in detail. There are many perspectives. This is mine.

I am writing this because I want to provide a historical perspective on where we are today with Firefox. A lot has been told about the development of the Firefox browser since Firefox 1.0. The reality is that the story is bigger than just Firefox 1.0. It goes back years, spans continents, and includes a cast of thousands. It's a fantastic story, with all of your standard themes — greed, rage, turmoil, love lost. But mostly it's a story of dedicated people laboring to create something they truly believe in. That's something I think everyone should be able to relate to - no matter what their walk of life. That's why Mozilla is so powerful and extends well beyond just Firefox.
An amazing story. If anything, I only wish there were more. There should be a book being written about Mozilla. This would be a great place to start.
