Mozilla must've really liked Chris Beard during his time as interim CEO because he is now the real, actual CEO of the company, "interim" prefix not required. Beard took over the reins of the firm in April after former CEO Brendan Eich stepped down amidst political backlash -- Eich had made contributions to an anti-same sex marriage bill in California. Though it's only been a few months, Beard appears to have proved himself worthy of the CEO role. As with Eich, Mozilla's current focus is to further its efforts on mobile. According to a recent blog post by Executive Chairwoman Mitchell Baker, "Chris has a keen sense of where Mozilla has been -- and where we're headed [...] There's simply no better person to lead Mozilla as we extend our impact from Firefox on the desktop to the worlds of mobile devices and services."
