Brendan Eich Destroys Firefox's Reputation

[UPDATE: Result - he's quit.]

Brendan Eich, CEO of Mozilla Firefox, has single-handedly started a firestorm that sees him at loggerheads with the company he heads.

Go figure.

Here's five facts you need to know about this limp willy. Including the news that dating site OKCupid have blocked Firefox browsers in protest.

Credo have launched a petition currently over 73,000 people, and have done the same with almost 100,000 signatures, calling for his dismissal.
