In a series of tweets, Johnathan Nightingale, the former General Manager and Vice President of the Firefox unit at Mozilla, accuses Google of sabotaging the browser to lure users to Chrome. Nightingale worked on Firefox for eight years and says that since the launch of Chrome, there were an unusual high number of incidents with small bugs on Google websites.

Nightingale says that every time, Google would say "oops, that was accidental" and that they would fix it in the next push in two weeks. But the oopses happened over and over again, dozens or maybe hundreds of them:

This is not the first time a Firefox developer complains about sabotage from Google. However, Nightingale doesn't hold a grudge against Google, and points out Firefox's downfall was caused by Mozilla's own doing.
