#Mozilla begrudgingly implements tracking protection by default, after being shamed into it yet again by Safari, the DuckDuckGo browser, and Gnome Web (just the ones I know who implemented it first) and talks a good talk while still having Google as its default search engine and continuing to get hundreds of millions from Google/Alphabet, Inc. – the largest surveillance capitalist in the world. (Mozilla Corp is ~entirely funded by surveillance capitalism.)
@aral Honest question: which browser to use?
@dbuntinx Gnome Web on Linux, Safari on macOS/iOS, and DuckDuckGo on LineageOS are my primary browsers.
Turning on Tracking Protection is just a button toggle away. There are some really good privacy-protecting add-ons like uMatrix, Privacy Badger, uBlock Origin etc. available for Firefox.
I feel like every time I install Firefox, it asks me if I want to allow telemetry. I always disable it, but with a little twinge of guilt... I mean, they collect it because it's useful, right? Presumably it has helped them build and improve a great and popular browser. I'm glad some people leave it on, and I don't think it's a hidden option.
