The Mozilla Foundation, whose recently released Firefox 4 browser has been downloaded more than 100 million times by users all over the world, has decided to open up a new office in San Francisco. As you may already know, Mozilla and Google have a long history of collaboration. The two companies are very close – literally. Google’s headquarters is in Mountain View, California, while Mozilla’s headquarters in also in Mountain View.

I only brought up Google because of this: Mozilla’s new office will be in the same building where Google keeps a well-staffed office – Hills Plaza in downtown San Francisco. Seems like Mozilla really wants to stay close to Google.

As you can imagine, the authorities are more than glad that Mozilla will establish a new office in San Francisco.
“Mozilla joins San Francisco’s robust and growing tech industry, and I am thrilled to welcome Mozilla to San Francisco,” said Mayor Edwin Lee.

While Mozilla is opening up a new office in San Francisco, Twitter is making a commitment to stay in San Francisco. Twitter’s VP of Communications, Sean Garrett, announced that Twitter will continue to call San Francisco home, it will remain in the city where it all started. Twitter will move its headquarters to Market Square, a historic building in San Francisco’s Central Market neighborhood. The move is expected to be completed by mid-2012.

“We are proud that Twitter will be among the first companies moving into the Central Market area and will be playing a role in its renewal with the city and with other businesses, arts organizations, and the numerous community organizations that have been doing hard work in the neighborhood for many years,” said Sean Garrett. “San Francisco’s unique creativity and inventiveness is a part of Twitter’s DNA, and we feel like we are part of San Francisco.”
