"...Firefox is only a part of what's necessary for the Internet to remain open and participatory. Firefox needs to remain strong enough and innovative enough that we're able to continue to show the industry that you can give people control or choice in an elegant manner and still be a professional vendor and that there are revenue opportunities in this."1

- Mitchell Baker, Chairman and Chief Lizard Wrangler of Mozilla Corporation, in January 2008.

"Baker and Mozilla are wrestling with new questions about the boundaries between communities and the corporation. She's creating a new management model based on engaging a business ecosystem."2

- Siobhan O' Mahony, Assistant Professor at Harvard Business School, in February 2007.
