Mozilla Receives A New CEO, Will Focus on Firefox OSAnother day, another CEO for Mozilla.

It looks like it’s that time of the year again when the open source organization is picking a new CEO. Now it’s Brendan Eich, one of the early Netscape developers and Firefox creators who is also known as the inventor of JavaScript; a pretty solid background if you ask us.

Back in August 2005, he became a CTO of Mozilla and has been doing some management ever since. What about his vision? Well, as it turns out, he doesn’t see Firefox as a top priority project, instead it is Firefox OS, yes, a mobile operating system that is yet to gain any traction is what Mozilla will be focusing on from now on. Either he is crazy, highly ambitious or both.

As Brendan Eich said, “It’s like the great circus act — spinning plates while doing back handsprings, and we are definitely turning mobile in the only way that can be really effective. The highest priority is to get volume to Firefox OS, especially the $25 phones.”

So what now? Let’s just sit back and see this unfold.
