Mozilla's new proposal encourages platforms to "Turn on by default the tools to amplify factual voices over disinformation.", through opaque and black-box AI systems.
Seeing as Mozilla's mission is to "ensure the internet remains a public resource that is open and accessible to all.", doesn't that seem a little backwards?
I think we can all say Mozilla has become a political organisation, instead of focusing on what their users want: a browser.
People are now uninstalling Firefox in protest, and I don't blame them.
Consider replacing Firefox with Ungoogled Chromium and Bromite. Mozilla may turn thr technology outlined in their blog post on people using Firefox, and I won't stand for it.
I think we have to say 'Enough is enough,' when this 'privacy-focused' browser includes 3 closed-source tracking SDK's by default
. If you've enabled Telemetry to support Mozilla, you're also supporting Google Firebase Analytics, Adjust and Leanplum.
After opening an issue (https://github.com/mozilla-mobile/fenix/issues/12809
) about this, and receiving major support from the community, Mozilla essentially stated that these tracking SDK's will not be removed from their browser.If you're using Firefox: you don't have to stand for this.
Mozilla are making a mockery of privacy advocates who recommend this 'grassroots pro-privacy' browser.
Playing right into Google's hands. Now I can see why people use #Bromite
