Mozilla’s Abandoned Projects – #YATP Ep. 003

Play

In Episode 3 of Yet Another Tech Podcast I take a look at some of the projects that Mozilla had endeavored to see through in the past and why they failed or got handed over to the community. Firefox OS of course is the the big project and eventually I’ll tackle that by itself but for now, here’s a good overview of some of the things that didn’t make it past the chopping block.
