Mitchell has written Mozilla in the New Internet Era, a post on the future direction of Mozilla, which I recommend to you.
If I had to summarise it in one short sentence, it would be “Goal 2 is incredibly important”. And I absolutely agree with that.
Mitchell says: “With Firefox, we won this first round of the fight for user sovereignty.” That’s also true, and something we can be very proud of. I think we have to keep working if we want to hold on to that victory, and Mitchell’s post makes it clear she agrees. She writes in the comments that “keeping Firefox vibrant remains really important to building an open web platform”. We need to keep working on Goal 1.
But if both goals are still in play, the issue remains: what we do about the fact that some ways of working towards Goal 2 harm our work on Goal 1?
