Mozilla’s user experience research and design team has just published the first Mozilla UX Quarterly.
Crystal Beasley, Editor and Product Design Strategist, writes:
“My hope is that this will be a tool to spread throughout the community of Mozillians the empathy for our users we’ve gained through our research studies and interviews.

Design gives us great tools to deal with uncertainty, enabling a culture with richer innovation. It also provides methods for breaking our own known and unknow- able biases so that we might more clearly see and appreciate the people who use the products we build.”
