Chalk another win up for the intolerant left.


Sad but predictable update to this story.

Update: This is just pathetic.

(PolicyMic) – According to a post on Mozilla’s official blog, the recently controversial Brendan Eich has stepped down as Mozilla’s CEO following a firestorm of criticism when it was revealed that he’d previously supported California’s anti-gay marriage law Proposition 8.

“Mozilla prides itself on being held to a different standard and, this past week, we didn’t live up to it,” Mitchell Baker, Executive Chairwoman, wrote in the blog post. “We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: it’s because we haven’t stayed true to ourselves.

“We didn’t act like you’d expect Mozilla to act. We didn’t move fast enough to engage with people once the controversy started. We’re sorry. We must do better.

“Brendan Eich has chosen to step down from his role as CEO. He’s made this decision for Mozilla and our community.”

So long, Firefox.
