No Mozilla is only in control of the implementation branded as Mozilla,

Yes. that would be "Mozilla Firefox", the project I explicitly referred to.

... ironically through copyright/trademark laws.

Ironically? How so?

... anyone is free to fork the product and potentially completely remove any control Mozilla has by simply doing a better job at building the browser

Yes. Which would then be a different project

Wrong. Open source does not mean chaos or loss of control.For example Mozilla Firefox is open source but Mozilla are still firmly in control of the project.

Its a question of good governance. Give it freedom but yet maintain direction. Not an easy balance to get right as companies like Oracle are slowly learning. How much control would Apple want to exert? My guess is a lot.

What the hell is up with you people over there in the US. Still using Imperial measurements? Banning science in favour of teaching about a wizard who made everything not so long ago. producing 40% of the worlds pollution whilst only having 4% of the worlds population

Your priorities are fucked.You do good war and spying though, I'll give you that.

There are three kinds of people: men, women, and unix.
