MozTrap 1.0 has arrived!


My team and I have been working on this product for over a year, and we have finally hit our 1.0 version!

The name?  Oh that…  Thank you for all the responses to the survey.  Seemed like people’s opinions went in quite a few different directions.  Some liked short and simple names.  Some liked funnier names.  Some liked more descriptive names.  In the end, we went with something that (in some ways) had all three of those…

MozTrapMozTrap – Set the trap, catch the bugs.   Sure, it’s a play on “Mouse Trap” or perhaps on Mosquito Trap.  Goofy, short, easy to spell, and descriptive (after a fashion…).  We are really excited about MozTrap hitting 1.0.  This is my first big project at Mozilla, and I am having a blast.

I want to give a big shout-out to my amazing team:  You guys really kick asteroids and I can’t thank you enough for all your enthusiasm, creativity, tenacity, hard-work and dedication.  Carl Meyer, Eric Meyer, Rebecca Billings, Jonny Meyer and Sondra Eisenstat have worked super hard and humored me in my quirks and crazy ideas to fit them into this product we now call MozTrap.  You guys really made an awesome push all the way through to the end.  From the bottom of my heart, I thank you.  And a special thanks to Aakash Desai for getting us rolling on this project and helping guide me into it before heading off to help make Mozillians awesome.

So, now on to more features!

We have a big list of wishlist items in our Pivotal Tracker project, and we’re working hard to prioritize them, and move forward.  Stay tuned for more updates.  🙂
