More and more people are getting upset about Chrome doing sneaky stuff. Good.
What absolutely baffles me, is that people are trying to find out if using a modified version of Chromium should still be ok.

I wonder if suck-age is because of (unfixable) technical inferiority, or bc sites are made for/optimized for Chrome, just like in the IE4 days.
At some low % marketshare, who's gonna care to make it work at all in FF?
Ah yeah, forgot to mention those public stances, which pissed me off a lot. With extremely poor leadership it isn't surprising, but it's still bad.
I had hoped that f.e. the European Union would fund (a fork of) Mozilla as it would/could be in the interest of a free and open web. But since I saw https://chaos.social/@echo_pbreyer/105881380868004867 that hope went out the window.
