Trust no one. Instead go back and look at history. The haves have been beating up the have-nots for ages and they do it with the technology of their time. Yet, technology continues to advance in exponential ways. A storm is coming!

I run FF using a script, which automatically runs CCleaner when I shut FF down.

I don't logs from anyone, anywhere collecting data about me I don't know about. Knowing about it it doesn't sweeten the deal either.

I'm astounded there are people who AREN'T bothered that an ever increasingly insidious amount of data is being collected from an ever increasing wider variety of sources is deemed acceptable.
Lol people are bothered, they just know sh*t. It s easy like that.
As for me, i trust only TOR nd they trust me so far :evil-trackback-dual-user:
Besides what re the options? Being tracked by the ISP, Microsoft, Google or Firefox?

Windows is dead, long live Windows.

Just another reason I love my Opera so much. FF has been getting shakier and shakier the more ground it loses imho.

I have used FF since about version 3. In the last couple of years I have grown more and more disillusioned with it and am contemplating a return to IE full-time; I can use both but find myself using FF less and less. This may drive me away. Example: in the last 12 months, I have been unable to access Webmail from my ISP, thanks to a message from FF stating that "Firefox no longer supports this technology". I have another (Hotmail) address, but have had to move Webmail to IE, which is ridiculous. I have been migrating my contacts away to my hotmail address, but why should that happen?

Here is a forecast, based upon two factors: (1) the 'civil War' at FF and (2) what happened to Oracle when they took over Open Office and attempted to make it a paying proposition. FORECAST: A split in FF ranks and a move away to a new browser by ex-FF personnel.

Remember, you heard it here first!

God I hope so.... Mozilla seem to have lost the plot, I don't know what they are playing at. Suddenly, they seem to have gone from being the browser that did their own thing, and did what they did extremely well, (a few bugs aside) to suddenly trying to... well I'm going to come out and say it, they are trying to be Google.

Its good to hear that at least some of the devs are getting unhappy with this new direction too, I am getting a bit dismayed at the supposed "Open Source for the people by the people" browsers attitude was "You don't like it? Use a different browser"
