"Security, Cool Features Of Firefox Web Browser Beat Microsoft's IE" - Walt Mossberg, Wall Street Journal
- Mozilla Firefox: Our next generation browser will simplify and speed up your browsing experience.
- Thunderbird: Our next generation standalone e-mail and newsgroup client can be used as a companion to Mozilla Firefox or by itself. Lightweight, fast, extensible and featuring sophisticated junk mail filters, Thunderbird sets a new standard for e-mail software.
We are a software development tools provider
The tools we've built to develop and manage our own projects power hundreds of open source projects.
- Bugzilla: the Mozilla bug tracking webtool to help you track progress in fixing bugs and implementing features that affect your applications.
- Bonsai: a web interface to the checkin log that you can query for checkins between certain dates, of certain files, or by certain developers.
- Tinderbox: our 24/7 build and test webtool that constantly builds, tests, and reports on the Mozilla application suite on multiple platforms so you can see the state of the application at any given point in time.
We are an open source community of developers and testers
- The Mozilla project's launch by Netscape in 1998 was a defining moment for the open source movement. We continue to be a leader and partner in open source development, providing low cost and alternative choices for technology. And, with millions of users, we are one of the largest distributors of open source software.
- We have a large, active development community that interacts via newsgroups, mailing lists, IRC channels, and web sites. We welcome all newcomers.
- Our development takes place in the public eye. See our development roadmap for the directions our technology is heading.
- We believe and practice the canons of open source development: release early and often, listen to your users, and given enough eyeballs, all bugs are shallow.
We are a partner for the technology industry
- You can join the many companies and organizations that are using, distributing, and assisting in the development of Mozilla technologies.
