Mozilla’s mission is to ensure the internet is a global public resource, open and accessible to all. An internet that truly puts people first, where individuals can shape their own experience and are empowered, safe and independent.
Founded as a community open source project in 1998, Mozilla currently consists of two organizations: the non-profit Mozilla Foundation, which leads our movement building work; and its wholly owned subsidiary, the Mozilla Corporation, which leads our market-based work, including the development of the Firefox web browser. The two organizations work in close concert with each other and a global community of tens of thousands of volunteers under the single banner: Mozilla.
Special thanks are due to Brandi Geurkink and Owen Bennett, who helped conceive this project and offered generous support and input throughout. We would also like to thank everyone else who kindly provided feedback and advice, including: Stefan Baack; Ashley Boyd; Jason Chuang; Marshall Erwin; Michael Feldman; Karolina Iwańska; Paddy Leerssen; Raegan MacDonald; Jesse McCrosky; Kasia Odrozek; Carolyn O’Hara; Claire Pershan; Bogdana Rakova; Becca Ricks; Mika Shah; Spandana Singh; and Jonathan Stray.
Most importantly, this work draws inspiration from a growing body of work from researchers and policy professionals across academia, civil society, industry, and the public sector. We would like to thank them for their contribution to advancing the debate in this field.
