An exuberant Mozilla Foundation has been brought back down to earth with a bang by the world’s internet organisations.
Flushed with the success of its Firefox browser, the Foundation has
clearly come to believe it is an important voice in the internet
community. But following a hasty decision regarding the resolving of
Internationalised Domain Names (IDNs), it has been publicly criticised
by the groups representing domain registries in both Europe and Asia,
as well as the US-based internet overseeing organisation ICANN.
I hope this is not the beginning of a slightly arrogant streak!
