Firefox has already sold your data to Google

Almost all of the funding for the Mozilla foundation comes from Google. That is why the Google search engine add-on is the default, the Google search bar is on the default home page, and Google "safe browsing" is enabled by default.

Why would Google fund its own competition in Firefox? Because Firefox supplies Google data on the internet searches and web sites accessed.

I'm glad Mozilla is taking this stand, but they have already sold the user data out to Google...and we all know how cozy Google is with government agencies.

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.
