Mozilla supports GNOME Foundation to support Linux accessibility

Monday, 8 February 2010 10:42am

The Mozilla Corporation has donated $US10,000 to the GNOME Foundation to support the ongoing development of Linux accessibility features, aiming for a smoother integration of access between the operating system and the web browser.

Mozilla Corporation, the commercial arm of the organisation best known for its Firefox web browser, has worked closely with the GNOME foundation in the past, but has taken particular interest in supporting innovation in the area at the upcoming CSUN Technology and Persons with Disabilities Conference, where a ‘hackfest’ will be created to provide an innovative and hands-on environment for Linux programmers that specialise in accessibility development. GNOME is a popular graphical interface available in most Linux distributions.

Further information on the donation can be found on the Linux today website.
