My Two Cents on the Firefox Theme Fiasco

Two things, basically. One, it looks like the Firefox team should have mailed Arvid Axelsson to tell him that since he wouldn’t open the license to the theme, they would be dumping it. And two, I hope Arvid sees that he has reduced the visibility of his work, reduced the respect for his name, and caused a lot of uproar in the community and extra work for the Firefox and Visual Identity teams. Had I been in his shoes, I’d have been glad to open the license. What’s better than having millions of people looking at your work, and all the potential name recognition (and potential employment) that could come from it?
