Mozilla is illuminated with vision, innovation and momentum. Mozilla launched over a decade ago with a far-sighted plan that was as radical as the Web itself: use open source and community to simultaneously create great software and build openness into the key technologies of the Internet itself.
2013 was an exciting year for the Web as Mozilla moved faster forward than the pace of the market and doubled down on mobile with Firefox OX, the mobile operating system. Why would Mozilla make a dramatic pivot from desktop software when its ubiquitous Firefox browser serves a 300+ Million user base?
Mozilla’s webmaker mission has always been fearless. It is focused on engaging and empowering the next 2 Billion smartphone users in emerging markets around the world. This spectacular market constitutes the people coming online for the first time.
“It’s critical that all these new mobile users have access to the openness and empowerment that the Web has brought to date. The mobile browser is a necessary piece of making sure this happens. We have been intent on making the change into mobile and reinvigorating our relationships with commercial players,” says Mitchell Baker, chairwoman of Mozilla Corporation and the Mozilla Foundation
Mozilla’s rapid shift toward commercial hardware partners includes ZTE, Alcatel and LG; and operator partners Telefonica, Deutche Telkom, Telenor and Telcom Italia Mobile. Firefox OX for Android surpassed 50 million downloads in 2013.
Leadership is the key to Mozilla’s values, principles and its ever-respected reputation for protecting the open platform. Did you know it is the most trusted Internet company for privacy?
It continues to change the world with technologists, thinkers and builders working together to create enormous scale, leverage and impact.
