At Mozilla, their mission is keeping the Internet healthy -- a place where anyone, anywhere, can learn, create, communicate, and collaborate. When the Internet is open to and shaped by everyone, it strengthens society. It empowers teachers, students, journalists, activists, and everyday citizens. Mozilla upholds their mission in a few different ways. You may know them best for the web browser Firefox. Firefox is open source, meaning anyone can tweak, build on, and improve the code. Open source code gives way to more innovation and inclusion online. But software alone -- even when it's open source -- can't keep the Internet healthy. Nor is it up to just developers to protect the Internet. That's why Mozilla also works in the realms of advocacy and leadership. They help fuel a diverse movement for a healthy Internet. It's a movement made up of technologists, yes, but also activists, artists, educators -- and librarians.
