Firefox has never been the most popular browser, but it has majorly influenced every popular browser and made the web a better place. That’s why I believe that Ladybird, a new browser written completely from scratch, and the Ladybird Browser Initiative, a nonprofit funded exclusively by donations whose sole purpose is the development of the Ladybird browser, can make a difference. I believe in Ladybird and I believe in Andreas’ vision, and I hope you’ll help us support an open, independent browser that supports you.

$1M isn’t exactly a huge sum of money for more than 4 developers to live on. I hope there’s more to come.

I also hope Wanstrath gives money to Mozilla for the same reasons.
