Mozilla (stylized as moz://a) is a free software community founded in 1998 by members of Netscape. The same-origin policy is a critical security mechanism that restricts how a document or script loaded from one origin can interact with a resource from another origin. It helps isolate potentially malicious documents, reducing possible attack vectors. The policy is published under the Open CC Attribution ShareAlike 3.0 license under the terms of the Mozilla Foundation and Mozilla's "Same-origin" policy.
