The New York Times > Technology > In the Battle of the Browsers '04, Firefox Aims at Microsoft

The New York Times > Technology > In the Battle of the Browsers '04, Firefox Aims at Microsoft: "The Firefox development is being led, said Mr. Eich, 43, by a 'new generation of hackers,' like Ben Goodger, a 24-year-old native of New Zealand. Mr. Goodger, the lead engineer on Firefox, is one of the Mozilla Foundation's full-time staff of 12 people, working from informal offices in Mountain View, Calif.
Mr. Goodger headed a team of more than 80 mostly volunteer programmers. His motivation, he said, was mainly the engineer's satisfaction of crafting tight, coherent code that others can build on and that is easy for ordinary people to use."
