Where Did Firefox Come From?

Hey Mozilla fans, ever wondered where Firefox came from? mozillazine.org published this excellent article providing an historical perspective on the evolution of Firefox through time. A very good read.

"Despite the failure of Netscape 6, engineers were still enthusiastic about continuing development. Now that Netscape could include its partner customizations — engineers called them “whore bars” — in its commercial tree, the engineering teams focused on improving the Open Source releases instead, hoping Mozilla would be the suite they had dreamt of building. Netscape branded products were largely ignored."
