'On Wednesday, Mozilla chair and longtime leader Mitchell Baker was
named permanent CEO of the company that makes the Firefox web browser.
From a report:
Mitchell became interim CEO of Mozilla in December 2019, after former
CEO Chris Beard resigned. The company conducted an external candidate
search over the last eight months, and concluded the Mitchell is the
right leader for Mozilla at this time, according to a company blog
post published Wednesday. "Increasingly, numbers of people recognize
that the internet needs attention," Baker said in another Mozilla blog
post Wednesday. "Mozilla has a special, if not unique role to play
here. It's time to tune our existing assets to meet the challenge.
It's time to make use of Mozilla's ingenuity and unbelievable
technical depth and understanding of the "web" platform to make new
products and experiences. It's time to gather with others who want
these things and work together to make them real."'
