Mozilla's new Chief Executive Officer Brendan Eich has resigned, after being dogged by calls for his ouster over his support for an anti-gay marriage bill in California.Eich's big mistake was apologizing when this story first broke. Once the left-liberals smelled blood, the feeding frenzy commenced. A better strategy would have been to say at the beginning, "Any Mozilla employee who has publicly criticized me via social media is hereby terminated for cause." Never, ever apologize if you're in the right. Never, ever back down when the rabbit people try to shame you into submission.
Mozilla's board chairman Mitchell Baker announced Eich's resignation in a blog post on Thursday.
"Brendan Eich has chosen to step down from his role as CEO. He's made this decision for Mozilla and our community," Baker wrote.
Eich had refused to give up the post, despite a growing chorus of voices demanding his resignation. He was named chief executive of the nonprofit Mozilla Foundation two weeks ago. Mozilla, which Eich co-founded, advocates for an open, inclusive Internet and builds the Firefox Web browser.
