@jalcine Hey Jacky, I’m afraid they haven’t heard us, no.
Are they looking to diversify their revenue stream? Yes.
Have they made a commitment to:
1. Not accept hundreds of millions of dollars from Google + other surveillance capitalists (e.g., if they reach $X in sales)?
2. Make Firefox private by default?
3. Make their products zero knowledge?
Nope, nope, and nope.
Without commitments, this is just a company making more money because, heck why not?
@aral I'm hoping that this is the nudge / lever that'll allow them to break those contracts. If this took the place of their search business, it'd be amazing.
