Firefox is Open-Source!
This particular browser is particularly special, because it is an open source platform. If you are not familiar with the term “open-source”, open source software is basically a program whose code is open to other web developers and coders. This way the program is constantly improved or modified by other people all around the world.
Anybody is able to access Firefox’s code and create new add-ons, new features, fix bugs and so on. The beauty of this is that developing the program becomes a very collaborative experience. Additionally, different people with different skills can actually really bring something new to the table. Many open-source developers often help fix some issues and improve the features and specs of the program itself.
Mozilla company created Firefox. Mozilla is an organization that provides non profit internet applications. This follows their own remarkable mission of creating an “internet for people”, and not for profit.
