Evolution of the Firefox Codebase

by Ali Almossawi

On this website, Ali Almossawi (student of Alan’s) visualizes the evolution of the Firefox Codebase and presents a set of metrics for all releases of Firefox that are indicative of quality.  The site allows one to inspect them through one of several views. By looking at changes in these metrics, one can see the evolution of the Firefox codebase over time. This work is also be useful as a retrospective, investigative tool to help infer when, say, architectural issues may be the cause for unfavorable user sentiment following a release.
