For its outstanding contribution towards the development of world-class Internet Technologies and Applications;

Representative: Ms Mitchell Baker, President and CEO

Mozilla is not a traditional software company. It is a global community and public benefit organization dedicated to improving the Internet experience for people everywhere.

It works in the open through a highly disciplined, transparent and cooperative process to coordinate the development and marketing of Mozilla technologies and products as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the non-profit Mozilla Foundation. This unique structure enables Mozilla to financially support and cultivate competitive, viable community innovation.

Its mission is to develop world-class, open source, fully standards-compliant Internet technologies and applications and to drive broad adoption of its products, so that it can ensure people will continue to have meaningful choices for web browsers, e-mail software and more.

The corporation partners with companies and organizations that share the same vision, ranging from peers in the open source community, start-up companies and some of the world’s leading IT vendors, including IBM, Sun Microsystems and Red Hat.
