Bugzilla is the most commonly used web-based bug tracking and removing application that is being used by the Mozilla organization. Bugzilla is basically a bug tracker and testing tool, which was first introduced in the year 1998 as an early open source bug tracking application. This application was being developed by the computer programmer named Terry Weissman for the Mozilla project and was licensed under the Mozilla Public licenses.
After the introduction of Bugzilla application, many web- based organizations such as Yahoo, Apache, Wikimedia Foundation started using this. Terry Weissman first wrote this particular application depending upon the language Tcl, but then thought of transporting the Bugzilla application to a more common language Perl. This Bugzilla application was first introduced in the year 1998, as an open source licensing software under the Netscape Communications. Basically, the Bugzilla application was the product of a deep though for replacing the commonly used bug tracking system which was becoming almost obsolete.
For the Nascent Mozilla project under the Mozilla Organization, the making of this Bugzilla application started. The project to create a suitable application that would be more efficient and intuitive and also responsive in tracking bugs held by the Mozilla organization, introduced Bugzilla. Due to its comprehensiveness and greater efficiency, the Bugzilla application was held as a replacement for the exited in-house bug tracking software for Netscape communication suites. After the year 2000, the different web-based organizations started to adopt the Bugzilla application for all their open source and free licensing software operation programs for several different proprietary software and web products.
