It hasn’t been a good year for Mozilla and its flagship product, the Firefox browser.
Firefox continues to lose share to Google Chrome. Statistics from Net Market Share show the decline, with Firefox plunging from 25% to 22% and Chrome rising from under 5% to more than 18% during the last two years.
Firefox is now on an accelerated development schedule that has alienated enterprise customers.
One of its key managers, Mike Shaver, left in September. And the deal with Mozilla’s biggest financial backer is in question.
