This is part of our plan to make Mozilla’s story easier to understand by no longer using our organizational structure to talk about what we do. Why was Thunderbird at mozillamessaging.com and Firefox at mozilla.com and other stuff on mozilla.org? Not only is it a boring answer, but it isn’t relevant. What’s important is that everything we do supports our mission. Let’s focus on that.
There have been other recent changes as part of this plan. Some are small (Air Mozilla now lives on air.mozilla.org instead of air.mozilla.com) and some are bigger (all of the Firefox product pages will soon be living at mozilla.org/firefox).
If you notice some similarities between the Thunderbird and Firefox pages, you won’t be surprised to hear that we’ll also soon be redesigning the current mozilla.org pages to fit this design style so that everything on http://www.mozilla.org feels like part of the same site.
If you’re interested in any one of these changes or about the general plan to move our sites to the mozilla.org domain, feel free to comment here or look for more details in the Implementation section of the domain name strategy. We’ll also post more about this soon, so stay tuned.
