Ten years ago today, the Mozilla Organization made publicly available the Mozilla 1.0 browser suite. The Firefox project began as an experimental branch of the Mozilla project by Dave Hyatt, Joe Hewitt and Blake Ross. To combat what they saw as the Mozilla Suite’s software bloat, they created a stand-alone browser, with which they intended to replace the Mozilla Suite. On April 3, 2003, the Mozilla Organization announced that they planned to change their focus from the Mozilla Suite to Firefox. Today, Firefox has approximately 25% of worldwide usage share of web browsers, making it the third most widely used web browser.
