MDN, Rust, software patents (Mozilla Open Software Patent License (MOSPL)), open source, ...

I have this feeling that it is not so unlikely. Could even be another acquirer, but this eventuality is not so relevant at the present time.

I am interested in opinions about this topic.

Given that Firefox is basically the only major browser left that doesn't use Chromium (to my knowledge), I seriously hope that an acquisition never happens, or we'll be left with a web monopoly in the hands of Google once they inevitably euthanise the fox.

I'm not sure what the consequences of other aspects of Mozilla would be. I'm not optimistic though.
