The beauty of open source is that you can comment out the code you don’t like, and recompile it.

It still stinks. If they made this data collection an option at the install level, what percentage do you thik would volunteer for it? Google and Facebook are going the WRONG way, I would hate for Firefox to join them.

It’s hard to believe that Microsoft has the best privacy out of the big browsers.

I think Microsoft is completely different company than what they used to be—and they respect individuals and privacy more than any of the big companies. HOwever, their old image is still burned into the anything but Microsoft crowd.
