“SPIEGEL ONLINE: How can Firefox benefit from a strong partner such as Google?
Ross: Google donates programmers and resources to the project. They’re sharing our vision of a world in which technology is actually beneficial to humans, not the other way round. From the beginning Google’s work served as inspiration for Firefox – even before the Mozilla foundation had an official working relationship with the company.
SPIEGEL ONLINE: Aren’t you afraid Google will become too influential?
Ross: The world would be a better place if Google had more influence. Google understands what people want from technology, and they’re delivering just that with astounding precision.
SPIEGEL ONLINE: There have been repeated rumors about “G-browser”, a browser by Google. Is Firefox going to be this G-browser? Or is Firefox going to be a competition to the G-browser?
Ross: Rumors are rumors.” (Via blog.outer-court.com)
