Josh has come to save our Aas.

28 Feb 2005

I posted this as a browser news sidenote earlier today, but I think it’s worth mentioning this significant event here too. Until now, all the paid workers at the Mozilla Foundations were those on Mozilla/Firefox. The Camino project – embedding the gecko rendering in a native cocoa browser was undertaken entirely by volunteers, mainly Mike Pinkerton. They didn’t just work on Camino though, as I understand it, Mike also helped produce the Mac builds of Mozilla. (As an aside, read this fascinating interview at Ars Technica).

Josh Aas is a fairly recent addition to the the Camino development team, and he’s helped bring new life to the project. Now, in a move that shows solid commitment from Mozilla to the Mac platform, they’ve hired Josh. This is great news, and makes me very hopeful for the Mac future of Firefox and Camino. All the best with your new role Josh!

Update : Josh has clarified his new role further. It seems that his role will cover Firefox, Thunderbird and Camino, and code that is shared amongst these 3. This is just fantastic news, and I can’t wait to see what happens.
