Mozilla experiments with open security

Mozilla gets most things right, and security is just one more to add to the list.

It seems like in just about every department, Mozilla does things right. As a case in point, I was gratified to read CNET's interview with Mozilla's security maven, Window Snyder. Window's first name notwithstanding, she makes it clear that Mozilla groks security:

At a lot of companies, there's fear around security: you don't want to talk about what you're doing around security because one might deem it not enough--or might want to criticize it...We benefit from being open; it's the model for us and it's been successful for us.

It's an interesting article, one I encourage you to read. It's just one more reason to choose Mozilla and its open-source products like Firefox.
