Mozilla’s CEO Chris Byrd announced on his blog today his plans to step down from his post at the end of 2019. Bird joined the web software company in 2004 and has been an employee ever since, except in 2013 when he became a company consultant.

Chris Baird was appointed interim Mozilla’s CEO in April 2014, where the company has seen a big boom in recent years, after relinquishing much of its browser market share to the likes of Google and Apple.

“Our products, technology and policy efforts are stronger and more resonating in the market than ever before, and we have built new organizational capabilities and significant financial strength to support our work”. Byrd said in today’s publication.

“From our new strategy of privacy forward to initiatives such as the state of the Internet, We are ready to seize the opportunity and enormous challenges ahead to ensure that we do more to control the lives of people who are connected and to shape the future of the Internet”, Byrd added.

Mozilla is currently seeking to replace Byrd, although he has agreed to continue until the end of the year, and Chief Executive Mitchell Baker has announced that she has agreed to intervene in a temporary role if necessary.
