Mozilla replaces CEO

Mozilla is going through a change in management as the existing CEO has decided to step down. Mitchell Baker will be instead become a Chairman for Mozilla, making way for a new CEO, John Lilly. In a statement, Baker says that the new CEO is the best fit for pushing Mozilla forward.

How will this impact their products? The article cites Lilly as wanting to push interoperability and standards, something the growing userbase (125 million according to Mozilla last year) of Firefox would obviously appreciate. That's not to say Mozilla hasn't been doing well. Firefox has continued to push IE out of the way to gain growth in various areas, so any increased focus on it is nothing but good.
