The Mozilla Manifesto and the open web

The Mozilla Manifesto is significant because, on the one hand, it plants firmly in the ground a commitment to various principles and ideals and on the other, it offers language in support of the continued production of the open web.

Some within Mozilla fear that with the advancement of technologies like WPF/E and , the business world is regressing towards more crystallization, more identity silos and more closed doors.

Thus the key aspects of the manifesto in this respect are: “effectiveness of the Internet as a public resource depends upon interoperability (protocols, data formats, content), innovation and decentralized participation worldwide.” and “Magnifying the public benefit aspects of the Internet is an important goal, worthy of time, attention and commitment.”
