Holy Crap

Well, this is certainly an interesting development:

For those that don’t know me that well, let me introduce myself. My name is Ben Goodger…
As of January 10, 2005, my source of income changed from The Mozilla Foundation to Google, Inc. of Mountain View, California. My role with Firefox and the Mozilla project will remain largely unchanged, I will continue doing much the same work as I have described above – with the new goal of successful 1.1, 1.5 and 2.0 releases. I remain devoted full-time to the advancement of Firefox, the Mozilla platform and web browsing in general…
Happy New Year,
Ben Goodger
Lead Engineer
Mozilla Firefox

Whoa. Google hired Firefox’s lead engineer!

Wonder what this means for our favorite browser?
