I got this recently on my Firefox update. The podcast talks about Surveillance Capitalism and sounds a good hearing but I really don't know on whose side is Mozilla because their browser default search engine is still Google. Its kind of hypocritically confusing.

    It's really less sinister than what most assume. Both of their products are fundamentally "produce the highest rate of conversion ad platform."

    Is it a risk? Depends. I can say at least at this point Google isn't giving your deanonymized data to governments. You're still better off not giving them your data.

    Anyone who has a Facebook account is batshit though.

    @SortOfTested Agreed.

    Facebook...who really knows, they have lied to their partners, users, government...they do whatever. They have zero credibility, and history shows no limits on what they will do.

    They get millions of dollars from Google. It's what's keeping Mozilla going in a lot of ways.

    @djsumdog Plus, the general public wants Google. It would be suicide for Firefox to change.

    @djsumdog Yup, I think I read somewhere after the last round of layoffs that it's something between 90-95%. @Lor-inc is also right

    I'm going to leave this article screenshot here. The article was about how mozilla managed to maintain it's current staff.
