Danny’s departure

Marco Cantù reported some sad news yesterday: Danny Thorpe has left Borland.

(Looks like it’s not just a rumor — John Kaster posted this on the newsgroups, which is enough confirmation for me.)

On the plus side, Danny’s new job is at Google, and it sounds like he’ll mostly be working on the FireFox browser — so we can certainly expect some even better things from FireFox in the future. (There have been rumors of FireFox extensions written in Delphi…)

So long, Danny, and thanks for all the tea leaves. Good luck — and, on a slightly selfish note, I hope we’ll all benefit from your new job as much as we did from your old one.
