Re: [vox] Strange things people believe



On the 12th day of November, Richard Crawford said to me:

The Mozilla Project was bron inside Netscape, but was later spun off from 
Netscape. 

There is good info here:

Netscape was bought by AOL. Around the same time (if my memory isn't 
playing tricks on me... ), teh Mozilla project became a separate entity. 
AOL does not own the Mozilla Project. Standards compliance has always been 
one of the principal goals of the Mozilla Project.
