Second Mozilla Developer Joins Google

Following news that lead Firefox engineer Ben Goodger has been hired by Google, fellow Mozilla developer Darin Fisher has announced that he, too, has joined the search giant. With at least two high-profile browser developers under its belt, rumors have begun swirling about Google's future plans with the Mozilla platform.

Darin, a former IBM and Netscape employee, is a "module owner" for the Mozilla project and is in charge of cookies and permissions, as well as Mozilla's networking library. As did Goodger, Darin promises to remain devoted to his current work, despite monetary backing from Google. "Like Ben, I will still be very much involved with the Mozilla project and community," Darin wrote in his Web log.
