Second Key Mozilla Developer Joins Google
Contributed by: G3nu1n3, at 1/27/2005 09:49:00 AM.

First it was Ben Goodger and Now Darin Fisher, announced today that he has joined Google.

Ben Goodger, on Monday, announced that he had joined Google Inc but pledged to continue work on the Mozilla Project and on key releases like Firefox 1.1, 1.5 and 2.0. Darin, who currently owns Cookie/Permissions, NetLib (The Mozilla Networking Library) and NSPR (Netscape Portable Runtime) modules has also announced he will continue work on these Mozilla Projects.

In a brief post on his weblog, Darin said the following "I thought I'd post that I have joined Google as well. Like Ben, I will still be very much involved with the Mozilla project and community :-)". Darin has previously worked for IBM and Netscape/AOL.

Clearly Google is developing technologies that will build into or off current Mozilla projects. Neither Google nor Darin have announced what Darin's work role at Google will be.

Speculation in 2004 pointed towards a "Google Browser" as people found references to "Gbrowser" in various Google applications. At first the rumours were dismissed by the Mozilla Foundation, noting that there would not be a tie up between the two companies. It's likely that the company will put Goodger's intimate knowledge of the browser to good use and improve the support for Firefox in the Google Desktop Search tool and the Google Search Toolbar.

Goodger's "know-how" in the browser world is another sure indicator of the Google's interest in this area; time, as with so many Google projects, will tell what comes out of it.
