Code Rush – documentary by David Winton on AOL’s takeover of Netscape and the Mozilla Foundation
"Code Rush" is a 1998 documentary directed by David Winton. It follows the lives of a group of Netscape engineers in Silicon Valley as they struggle to save their company from impending financial doom. The film shows them spending sleepless night after sleepless night, forsaking their family and friends while they labor to release the open-source code of Mozilla, which one of today's most popular browsers, Firefox, is based on. Netscape was also on the verge of being taken over by AOL, a company that even geeks do not find cool. This was another source of conflict for the employees of Netscape.
