10 years old, with thoughts as bold as thoughts can be

Happy birthday to Mozilla (org, not com!). You've come a long way baby! Yet another reminder that I've been at this browser stuff for far too long. Back when we released the source, it was still destined to be Netscape5.0. Long before Gecko. Long before XUL. Long before we decided to ditch the entire thing and re-write it from scratch (I mean, how long could that possibly take, right!?). The Source331 project (as we called it) was one of the most fun I've been a part of during my (brief) career; watching everyone come together behind an idea and pull out all the stops to make it happen.

Google's Summer of Code program is one popular way that you can get directly involved -- and get paid. Over the past two years, we've had several projects for Camino specifically. If you're interested, check out the ideas, submit your own (or volunteer for one), and come talk to us in #camino.
