AI.Mozilla, the newest division of Mozilla that is also in line with the Mozilla Manifesto, which brought us the first important open source browser, is now stepping into the AI arena to continue protecting the Web and us users.
Harken back a few decades to when Microsoft owned the software universe and Internet Explorer (IE) was about the only choice.
Mozilla introduced the Firefox browser in 2002, which was important because it offered a faster, more lightweight browsing experience than IE and it was open-source software which quickly gained a strong community of users and developers.
Unlike IE, anyone was free to customize Firefox and developers could create a vast number of new features.
Firefox is almost unique among browsers in not tracking what users do online and is still very popular, second only to Google Chrome.
The Mozilla Manifesto states that the Mozilla Foundation is committed to:
A free and open internet
Privacy and security
Innovation and interoperability
Open standards and collaboration
Respect for users
A healthy internet ecosystem
The Manifesto remains the guiding document for the Mozilla Foundation and its projects, including the Firefox web browser. The manifesto helps to ensure that the Mozilla Foundation remains true to its values as it develops new products and services.
