1. I understand the importance of supporting open source projects. They're usually labours of love by idealists. That's why I've donate to open source developers I support when I have spare money, or try to help out with minor pull requests whenever I'm able to contribute.
2. Very nice for cketti I assume. Now he's a part of the corporation, since Thunderbird is owned by MZLA Technology Corporation is owned by Mozilla Foundation, right?
3. I struggle to think of any #Mozilla improvements for the last decade and beyond that I've considered positive, besides bringing extensions to mobile browsers.
In fact, most of the many, many changes have been "Fine, I guess" at best and completely system breaking at the worst. Like removing extension support for mobile browsers or removing XUL from desktop browsers.
Saying that you have more of those resources to throw at #K-9 isn't something I consider positive.
I do recognize this is a utterly subjective stance.
4. I wasn't familiar with that term, so I had to look it up. "Not invented here (NIH) is the tendency to avoid using or buying products, research, standards, or knowledge from external origins."
I see what you mean. Do you perhaps see how I wonder why you're avoiding to use the research and knowledge from a fully open source project to improve your own?
5. My impression is that the sort of lifting Mozilla have done the last 12 years have driven away 75% of their users.
#web #browser poll has ended. the results are here: https://mastodon.social/@Unatributed/108450137107624580
Unfortunately not a lot of respondents, but the ~60/40 split was enough to get me to install vivaldi.
Unfortuantely I won't be sticking with it. Why? My main reason for installing it was the new mail client, which reminded me of the old #Mozilla and #opera browsers. Alas, the mail client doesn't work the way I need it to, and there are lots of forum posts about problems with it...
(Also, I suck at stepping away from the keyboard apparently!) :)
Folks: That’s not what they are. Why do you think that’s what they are?
X exists by violating your privacy.
Y exists by being funded by X for allowing X to violate your privacy.
Therefore, Y is not the defender of your privacy that Y says it is.
What atrocious logic! Y is clearly an independent organisation that exists to protect your privacy.
(I mean I wish I was making these up but they’re just based on responses I’m getting here and have gotten over the years.)
Based on Project Bergamot and implemented in WebAssembly
Thankfully, we can do so much better than capitalism/Silicon Valley.
If we want a browser owned and controlled by the people, we must fund an organisation owned and controlled by the people to build and maintain it. (So, for example, an independent org funded by our taxes.)
And, hey, they don’t even have to start from scratch. They can, for example, fork Firefox. ;)

Because Mozilla Corporation makes half a billion dollars a year. If they’re not selling you a browser, what (or who) do you think they’re selling to whom?
Hints: you, Google (and anyone else who’ll pay them for access to you).
In people farming, you are the livestock being farmed; you’re the lab rat (heck Mozilla even runs “experiments” on you; they’re not coy about it).

Back in 2013 asm.js, which has now evolved into #WebAssembly #WASM - one of the most relevant technologies for computing in the future.
2015, what has started as a research project by Graydon Hoare, the #Rust programming language, which will define how we will develop software in the future.
I think people don't appreciate this enough.

So Mozilla – Defender of Privacy™ – is storing my location history, tied to my router, without ever having gotten consent from me to do so.
This is a fucking scandal.
