Who Owns Mozilla Browser

In 2002 Firefox was created under ”Phoenix” by the Mozilla community members who desired a standalone browser, rather than the Mozilla Application Suite bundle.

The Firefox Browser began as an experimental branch of the Mozilla project by a group of three men, identified as Dave Hyatt, Joe Hewitt, and Blake Ross. They believed the commercial requirements of Netscape’s sponsorship and developer-driven feature creep compromised the utility of the Mozilla browser.

To combat what they saw as the Mozilla Suite’s software bloat, they created a stand-alone browser, with which they intended to replace the Mozilla Suite. On April 3, 2003, the Mozilla Organization announced that they planned to change their focus from the Mozilla Suite to Firefox and Thunderbird. The community-driven SeaMonkey was formed and eventually replaced the Mozilla Application Suite in 2005.

Mozilla Firefox browser is a free tool developed by Mozilla Foundation… a non-profit organization that exists to support and collectively lead the open source Mozilla project. Founded in July 2003, the organization sets the policies that govern development, operates key infrastructure and controls Mozilla trademarks and copyrights.
