Ben Goodger, Firefox lead, now works for Google

My last post was about checking the blogs of Ben Goodger and Blake Ross, who together have made huge contributions to the success of Firefox. I noted that there wasn't much of interest on either blog at the moment.

Today that changed - though reading the news in my RSS reader, the headline of "Changes" was scarcely one that foretold the major news contained in the post. The news is that, since two weeks ago, Ben Goodger has been employed by Google, rather than The Mozilla Foundation. In practice, his job remains as it was, but with Google paying its lead developer, we can be sure that new and interesting overlap between the Mozilla Foundation's browsers and Google's services are sure to develop.
