AP reports that Adobe will be contributing code behind Flash to Mozilla so that the same can be implemented in the new version of Firefox.

This is a very interesting development, because it means Adobe is yet another company after Microsoft and Oracle to support the Open Source movement.

Adobe had recently acquired Macromedia, the original producers of Flash.

Mozilla has set up an open-source project called “Tamarin” to manage the future contributions to the scripting language code from Adobe. The project will be jointly managed by developers from Adobe and Mozilla.

Firefox currently holds a 11 percent market share among browsers with Internet Explorer leading with 86%!
