I have always respected companies like Mozilla. Especially during the years when it was Netscape. Battling MS and Internet Explorer. This is just one side. But still...

    There was a post recently on r/DataIsBeautiful that showed the trend of the browsers.

    Mozilla was not only declining, but also was lowest as compared to others like Safari.

    I feel that these try hard open source products like Mozilla/DuckDuckGo force themselves on a community and once they gain their desired traction, the said community is betrayed.

    I trust Google/Microsoft more than these companies.

    @Floydimus Mozilla has been waging war on its users for years, and they reap what they harvested. Interestingly, the CEO's salary exploded while the market share plummeted. I'd call that a cleptocracy, not a foundation.

    Btw., I'm with Vivaldi - Chromium based, but neither Chrome nor Edge.

    What the fcuk is it man!!👺
    I was thinking like big companies respect their employees. It’s making me feeling bad.
    And even if there’s anything personal then keep it personal man!
    No one should get into someone’s profession life due to their own personal reasons.
    Hope this guys finds some deserving place soon. 🙏🏼🙃

    @lassiecoder Pretty sure Microsoft takes better care of their employees than Mozilla simply because Microsoft's revenue depends on their employees, while Mozilla's revenue depends mostly on the deals and sponsorships upper management gets and the cheaper the workforce, the more of that money they get to keep. On top of that, many people see working at Mozilla as a way to "give back to the community" and are therefore willing to work harder and endure shittier conditions, while people working at Microsoft see it as just another job they can walk away from if they get treated poorly or don't get paid enough.

    I wouldn’t want to work with someone who has “smash the patriarchy” and “✊🏿✊🏾✊🏽✊🏿✊🏾✊🏽☮️🕊” in their bio either.

    I don’t even have to think about it, I already know you’re going to be an absolute pest who is a vexation of my spirit.

    @whiskey0 Sadly lots of large / popular / well-known entities are starting to use their position in the open source community to propagate their political views and alienate other members of the community who don't share their views.

    It started with seemingly innocent "Code of conduct" in GitHub repos, and 5 years later we're at the point where major OSS foundations are siding with extremists and freely censoring content they deem "misleading" or "harmful".

    @johnmelodyme I like Vivaldi a lot. I've been using that for many years.

    I switched from FF back when Mozilla started fucking around with the UI and turned FF into a Chrome-alike. That was around when they axed the addons which were FF's major unique selling point.
