Mozilla's embattled chief executive is resigning after a revolt among employees drew attention to political contributions he made in 2008 opposing same-sex marriage, according to The Washington Post.



The maker of the popular Firefox Web browser announced Thursday on its blog that Brendan Eich would no longer be serving as its chief executive — just days after Eich had taken the helm of the organization.

"We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: it’s because we haven’t stayed true to ourselves," wrote executive chairwoman Mitchell Baker.
