Okay people, we've seen degrade more and more for years, and we've always hoped it will find its way and get better.

Now people working on Developer Tools, , and the Rust team - arguably some of the most useful and valuable teams at Mozilla - have been laid off, to make space for more profit making activities.

This is utter bullshit.

But perhaps this is also an opportunity. The FLOSS community forked OpenOffice, XFree86, and other huge projects.

Interesting and kind of exciting prospect. That's my concern: that Firefox is my absolute go-to. Other than Ungoogled Chromium there's no other browser I use for everyday browsing. If needed, I'd probably fall back to GNU IceCat.

@syntax I wonder what's the status of GNU IceCat these days?

Is it actively developed? Is there enough developer clout around it to start developing it as an independent project if/when Firefox stops being a viable upstream?
