I've heard some negative things about Mozilla lately, but this is something that personally moves the needle in a anti-mozilla direction more than, e.g., ads on the new-tab page


@codesections same, it's disappointing because I *want* to love mozilla so much, but they make it so hard to do that

@balrogboogie @codesections I was working at Red Hat at the time and got the opportunity to put my name in that two-page ad. It was an amazing time and I remember being so full of wonder and hope for the future. Now that I'm in that future, it's pretty disheartening. I hope something turns around soon.

i guess a lot of people have a mix of nostalgic feelings and hope that mozilla would really be the face of a free web. but we have to face that we need new alternatives coming from real people, not this corporate bs that mozilla has turned into.
