Steve Jobs joins Mozilla Foundation as President
Steve Jobs will also announce tighter integration of Mac OS X and Mozilla and says that Mozilla Firefox WILL be the default browser in future versions of the Mac OS X operating system. Apple is effectively dropping the development of the Safari browser which is based on the KHTML rendering engine.
Steve Jobs is the CEO of Apple, which he co-founded in 1976, and Pixar, the Academy-Award-winning animation studios which he co-founded in 1986. Steve grew up in the apricot orchards which later became known as Silicon Valley, and still lives there with his wife and three children.
Mozilla Foundation was established in July, 2003, with start-up support from America Online's Netscape division, the Mozilla Foundation exists to provide organizational, legal, and financial support for the Mozilla open-source software project.
