You may have seen the awkward corporate speak announcement that Mozilla is exploring new revenue models and making 250 layoffs (around 25% of their workforce, on top of the 70 or so in January).
In their 250 layoffs was the entire MDN writers team, the Firefox dev tools team and what was left of their developer relations team. Apparently we're just not that important to Mozilla's mission! Frustrating as developers have often been their biggest advocates. I fear that Mozilla is far from the engineering-led organisation it once was.
Bruce Lawson, Antifa. Black Lives Matter.@brucelMozilla laying off their devtools people is a massive blow. The excellent devtools were a good., non-ideological reason for developers to use Firefox as part of their daily work, & thus test in it & care about it. Moz had long given up on any other developer relations activities.08:38 AM - 12 Aug 2020
Given this news, will you still continue to support the organisation? Has your opinion of Mozilla changed?
