Default Bryan Lunduke: Mozilla is Not Trustworthy

Bryan Lunduke voices his opinion that Mozilla is not trustworthy, because of Mozilla experiments on users such as Firefox test in Germany that used Cliqz GmbH technology and “Looking Glass” add-on.

A 33 minute video? I'll take your word for it. The Looking Glass thing was really foolish on their part, IMHO.

I always assume I'm being tracked, monitored by my Google, NSA, CIA, etc. overlords

Thanks for sharing. It's an interesting critique, but I think his proposed solutions and optimism are overidealistic‏.

Mozilla Corp. is simply a Google LLC/Microsoft Corp./Opera Software ASA with another name and there's no hope *or point* to redeem it. Just another cog and nothing more.

It's just how things are and will remain.

It's not limited to tracking and monitoring. Deliberate profiling and shaping of content is the game here.

Bryan has made a few videos about Mozilla and has taken quite a bit of heat for it.

I think what is really needed is a community made browser that is small, simple, secure and works. Is this impossible? Accepting shiny free gifts from corporations was never going to work out.
