"Prominent Mozilla developer and crusader Mike Shaver confirmed Wednesday that he is to leave AOL/Netscape's open-source browser project Mozilla at the end of the month for a new job."

"Shaver released a statement on the Mozilla.org Web site putting to bed rumours about his imminent departure. "Rumours are always more frightening than the truth, so I'd like to set things straight," he wrote. "January 31, 2000 is my last day as an employee of AOL/Netscape, and it will also mark the end of my full-time involvement with Mozilla."

"Shaver won't reveal any information about his new employer, but says that his new job won't stop him contributing to Mozilla..."

"It's very important to me that people don't misinterpret this as a vote of no-confidence in Mozilla or mozilla.org. I'm certain that Mozilla will be a resounding success," he wrote."
