On Wednesday, Eich responded to the backlash with a statement where he expressed "[his] sorrow at having caused pain" but did not apologize or explicitly state the company's support for marriage equality.
That changed this weekend, when Mozilla released a statement declaring their full support for LGBT equality, including in marriage. The statement is not attributed to Eich himself, but it's still a step in the right direction.
From the statement:
Mozilla's mission is to make the Web more open so that humanity is stronger, more inclusive and more just. This is why Mozilla supports equality for all, including marriage equality for LGBT couples. No matter who you are or who you love, everyone deserves the same rights and to be treated equally.
We realize that not everyone in our community or who uses our products will agree with this. But we have always maintained that as long as you are willing to respect others, and come together for our larger mission, you are welcome. Mozilla's community is made up of people who have very diverse personal beliefs working on a common cause, which is a free and open internet. That is a very rare and special thing.
Mozilla fans, what do you think of this latest development? Is it enough to bring you back to Firefox, or are you still holding out for an apology from Eich himself?
