Position: Vice president of engineering, Mozilla
Location: Palo Alto, Calif.
“People ask us all the time what Mozilla’s going to do about the mobile Web, and I’m very excited to announce that we plan to rock it.” So said Schroepfer on his blog last October, and he’s overseeing the development of the Mozilla browser (which underlies Firefox) to make it true. He has made mobile development a priority and supervised the addition of mobile browser experts to the Mozilla team. Mozilla-based mobile browsers are already available on Nokia’s Internet Tablet products, and Schroepfer plans to bridge the gap between the mobile and desktop browsing experiences: Eventually the same Mozilla code base that powers your desktop browser could also live on your phone.
