“Or, use a non-mozilla browser in the first place...”
Yeah but Firefox is open source and very customizable. That’s why so many people here have it in the first place. If mozilla screws us, we just take the code. If Opera or Google screws us, we’re stuck.
Yeah, I get it - I use Mozilla myself... And I write Open Source. But if one is going to send a public statement to Mozilla, switching out of Firefox into any other Mozilla fork is not going to send the message, because the servers will still think you are running Mozilla. Zero difference on the surface of it. That's all I am saying. Over time, as Mozilla downloads decrease and their servers report fewer updating machines in the wild, the message will get to them, but that is not an immediate and attributable thing.
Switching out to Opera (as an instance) boosts Opera on the net and diminishes Moz. Right now. THAT sends the message.
