Time for a new leader over at Mozilla, the company most known for its Firefox web browser. Sources tipped off Kara Swisher of AllThingsD letting her know that John Lilly will be resigning as CEO of the browsing powerhouse for another position at venture firm, Greylock.
The search for a replacement is already on, and although they would like to just find the right guy and make the swap, it’s more likely that there will be a gradual transition between Lilly and whomever is to replace him.
Lilly leaves on good terms, and will remain on Mozilla’s board. Mozilla’s Firefox browser has been growing ever since it debuted in 2004. Recent numbers put the browser’s popularity at a little over 24% of total Internet browsing.
