Windows 7: Mozilla CEO Chris Beard to Step Down

Mozilla CEO Chris Beard to Step Down

Earlier this morning I shared the news internally that Ė while Iíve been a Mozillian for 15 years so far, and plan to be for many more years Ė this will be my last year as CEO.

When I returned to Mozilla just over five years ago, it was during a particularly tumultuous time in our history. Looking back itís amazing to reflect on how far weíve come, and I am so incredibly proud of all that our teams have accomplished over the years.

Today our products, technology and policy efforts are stronger and more resonant in the market than ever, and we have built significant new organizational capabilities and financial strength to fuel our work. From our new privacy-forward product strategy to initiatives like the State of the Internet weíre ready to seize the tremendous opportunity and challenges ahead to ensure weíre doing even more to put people in control of their connected lives and shape the future of the internet for the public good.

In short, Mozilla is an exceptionally better place today, and we have all the fundamentals in place for continued positive momentum for years to come.

Itís with that backdrop that I made the decision that itís time for me to take a step back and start my own next chapter. This is a good place to recruit our next CEO and for me to take a meaningful break and recharge before considering whatís next for me. It may be a clichť ó but Iíll embrace it ó as Iím also looking forward to spending more time with my family after a particularly intense but gratifying tour of duty.

However, Iím not wrapping up today or tomorrow, but at yearís end. Iím absolutely committed to ensuring that we sustain the positive momentum we have built. Mitchell Baker and I are working closely together with our Board of Directors to ensure leadership continuity and a smooth transition. We are conducting a search for my successor and I will continue to serve as CEO through that transition. If the search goes beyond the end of the year, Mitchell will step in as interim CEO if necessary, to ensure we donít miss a beat. And I will stay engaged for the long-term as advisor to both Mitchell and the Board, as Iíve done before.

I am grateful to have had this opportunity to serve Mozilla again, and to Mitchell for her trust and partnership in building this foundation for the future.
Over the coming months Iím excited to share with you the new products, technology and policy work thatís in development now. I am more confident than ever that Mozillaís brightest days are yet to come.

Windows 7 ULTIMATE (SP1)(x64)

ooh my.. I wonder where Mozilla and Firefox will head now...
ever-since they scrapped the XUL/XPCOM extension system in favor of web-extensions...

Firefox has gone down hill in my opinion... since I am now without most of my essential addons..
