Mozilla Teams up with Google, W3C, Microsoft and Samsung

Mozilla officially announced on October 18, 2017 that they will be joining forces with Google, Samsung, W3C, Microsoft and other industry leaders to collaborate on the MDN (Mozilla Developer Network) documentation.

The goal of the partnership is to consolidate information about web development for multiple browsers besides Firefox and make web development easier.

Mozilla Developer Network’s most accessed content are articles and tutorials on JavaScript, CSS, HTML and detailed documentation of new technologies like Web APIs.

This has been made possible by quality volunteer community contributions over the past 12 years. In 2017, 8,021 users made 76,203 edits.

Cross-browser documentation contributions include input from writers at Google and Microsoft; Microsoft writers have made more than 5,000 edits in 2017. This cross-browser collaboration adds valuable content on browser compatibility and new features of the web platform.

The companies have formed a Product Advisory Board to formalize the relationships and guide their progress in years to come.

MDN Web Docs see more than six million web developers and designers monthly growing at a rate of 40% per year.
