Mozilla has said that it has no interest in appealing to the business community after complaints that the firm's new development cycle will cause headaches for IT managers.
Firefox product manager Asa Dotzler said in response to a blog post by Firefox consultant Mike Kaply that the problems this might cause are irrelevant to Mozilla.
"Enterprise has never been (and I'll argue, shouldn't be) a focus of ours. Until we run out of people who don't have sysadmins and enterprise deployment teams looking out for them, I can't imagine why we'd focus at all [on these environments]," he said.
Dotzler added that Mozilla is far more interested in providing the best possible experience for the average internet user, especially given the firm's limited financial strength when compared with the likes of Microsoft.
"A minute spent making a corporate user happy can better be spent making many regular users happy," he said.
"I'd much rather see Mozilla spending its limited resources looking out for the billions of users who don't have enterprise support systems already taking care of them."
Despite Dotzler's comments, Mozilla is growing in use among the enterprise community. IBM, for example, announced in 2010 that it had made Firefox its official browser.
Microsoft's Internet Explorer remains the most commonly used browser for most businesses, despite numerous security vulnerabilities, most notably in IE6.
