Mozilla is a major player on the Internet.
You have undoubtedly heard of their products like the Firefox web browser and Thunderbird email client.
Mozilla is not your average technology company. They are a global non-profit dedicated to promoting openness, innovation and opportunity on the web.
And when Mozilla wants to announce a new project they are working on, they do it on Usenet.
Similar to Chrome OS or Apple’s iOS, this ambitious project aims to create a “complete, standalone operating system for the open Web.”
No more apps that work only on your iPhone or Android phone. Apps created with B2G would work across all devices.
Usenet has long been the place for major technology announcements.
The original Mosaic browser, Linux and the World Wide Web itself were all announced on Usenet.
And even today, Usenet continues to be the place where bold tech projects are born!
