Mozilla it has always been linked to the history of free and open source software, ever since it emerged from the members of the defunct Netscape. When in 1998 the code of the famous and successful web browser Netscape Navigator was released in its version 4.x and from it the Mozilla project arose until now, a lot has changed and progressed. From the success of its flagship product, Mozilla Firefox, other achievements and projects have been added to the company.

Now from the M (launched since 2003) they continue to manage and promote open source and free software, and they do so with their own projects and also collaborating and helping independent and amateur developers to create more of this type of software. An example of this is the $ 500.000 award to open source projects that the foundation will give to help fund them and attract more developers. With all these foundations, the truth is that a multitude of new and interesting projects is being promoted and supported. Mozilla is harvesting enough money Due to their successes with their open source and web technologies, and thanks to the funds raised, they will now award that juicy amount that we have discussed in the previous paragraph to new open source projects. Specifically with prizes of up to 539.000 US dollars.

A few of the projects We are talking about, for example, Ushahidi (project to share and make collections of local information), RiseUp (development of digital security tools for activists), Phaser (a graphic engine for video games based on HTML5), etc., under the program Mozilla Open Source Support, also known as MOSS.
