Back in 1998 I was a 10th grader who’s beloved web browser (Netscape) was open sourced to the Mozilla project. It was basically the first time I had heard of open source.
Ever since then I have maintained a huge interest in the Mozilla project. I remember the first day I switched from Internet Explorer to the Mozilla suite M14 builds, sometime in ~2000. I remember testing the first nightly builds of the Phoenix browser and immediately seeing its potential. That potential is now reality in Firefox, which is usually the first thing I install on any computer I use.
Well, Mozilla is having its 10th birthday today. What an amazing trip it has been.
