Note: An effort to revisit these milestones and get community members to help us tell the history of Mozilla is going on during the 15th anniversary. Check out the history blog posts etherpad for more details.


In 1998 mozilla.org was created as a place to host the open source version of Netscape Communicator. Today this site is the center of a world-wide movement that is creating the Firefox browser as well as a wide range of other innovative projects.
