Mozilla Laying Off Around A Quarter Of Their Employees
Due to falling revenues stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic, Mozilla is resorting to immediate cost-saving measures and acknowledging their pre-COVID plans are no longer feasible. This 250 reduction in headcount appears to be roughly a quarter of their paid staff.
Mozilla will continue focusing principally on their Firefox web browser, Pocket, and their new VPN offering.
