Mozilla

 

Boycott this company that has very bad intentions

 

THE BAD:

Mozilla (Firefox) is a dangerous company that says censorship and deplatforming isn't enough. Gab's founder, Andrew Torba believes that browsers are the next level of censorship. We have had big tech companies shutting down the servers of free speech platforms such as Gab, Minds and Parler. Now that these platforms have built their own servers, big tech may just block your browser from accessing conservative websites. They also seek to cancel advertisers who support conservatives. Payment processors have banned platforms such as Gab, who currently have to resort to only accepting bitcoin payments.

 

Mozilla's vile CEO, Winifred Mitchell Baker foments racist, vile DNC propaganda, calling Trump's "actions reprehensible" and that Trump "rampantly" uses the Internet to "foment violence and hate, and reinforce white supremacy."

 

94% of Mozilla's revenue has come through royalties received from search engines that are bundled with Mozilla Firefox browser. But, search engines decide how much they are willing to pay Mozilla by looking at Firefox browser market share.

 

In 2020, Mozilla moved to monetize their Thunderbird local email client (program runs off of your computer instead of on the cloud). Through a new company, MZLA Technologies, Mozilla will be able to make money through partnerships and non-charitable donations.

 

Against Trump's "Muslim Travel ban".

 

In favor of DACA.

 

THE GOOD:

Mozilla has no redeeming qualities.

 

THE BOTTOM LINE:

Stop using Mozilla Firefox (do not use Microsoft Internet Explorer or Google Chrome either).

 

 

ALTERNATIVES:

1. The Brave browser.

 

2. Dissenter by Gab is based on the Brave browser. The only problem with Dissenter is that, last time we checked, there hasn't been a security update since March 22, 2020. Gab may have abandoned this browser project, and so we recommend Brave.

 

3. Email client alternatives to Thunderbird. Beware that Postbox is the work of Mozilla employees.
