New Gecko OS X Widgets Module Owner: Steven Michaud

I’ve been Gecko’s OS X (Cocoa) Widgets module owner for a long time. The code in this module is Gecko’s OS X compatibility layer.  Today I’m handing over the reigns to Steven Michaud.

We’re fortunate to have such a capable and active new owner. Steven has been working on this code with me since before Firefox started using it by default in 2006, and in more recent years he’s been doing the bulk of the maintenance work. In addition to knowing the module well, he’s got great debugging skills. Those skills are joined by some serious perseverance, which means he can get to the bottom of just about any bug.

Thank you, Steven!

    Amen to that. I won’t forget how tenaciously he worked to track down the infamous “code -20″ bug. Talk about perseverance!
