Mozilla says Brendan Eich resigns as CEO
Re/code: Mozilla says CEO Brendan Eich has stepped down following controversy about his support of California’s anti-gay marriage law, Proposition 8.
Eich saw backlash due to a $1,000 contribution he made in 2008 to support the ban on gay marriage. Earlier this week, he said he would not step down from the job despite protests by Mozilla staffers on Twitter to do so.
"We didn’t act like you’d expect Mozilla to act. We didn’t move fast enough to engage with people once the controversy started. We’re sorry. We must do better,” the company said in a blog post.

It’s always interesting to see how intolerant people looking for tolerance can be.
