Wow, John Lilly is shaking things up as CEO! Mozilla has managed to hire the guys behind Humanized:
Mozilla has hired 3 of the principals from Humanized. They will be joining the Mozilla Labs team on January 16, 2008. We expect a lot of innovation work from them, some Firefox-related, some broader, just like everything else in Mozilla Labs. This was not an acquisition. No premium was paid and no intellectual property was acquired by Mozilla.
The work done by the Humanized principals speaks for itself â€” there are lots of great, web-relevant ideas in their work and weâ€™re excited to have them join Mozilla.
I really hope to see a prototype of the zoomable UI browser with vertical tabs so you infinitely scroll around. Congrats to the guys, especially Aza, who I know is a great guy and always enjoy his talks at The Ajax Experience. Are you guys moving to the bay or staying in Chicago? :)
