r/privacy - What is wrong with browser telemetry?
#privacy #security #gdpr
@aral @andreipetcu Mozilla gets money from search engines. The most popular is Google. If the most popular would become DuckDuckGo or Qwant then Firefox would switch it's default. Mozilla does not fight surveilance capitallism on the search engine side but ignoring all the work it does in this regard is simply not fair. Just check mozilla.org/vote No other browser vendor comes close to the work Mozilla is doing.
@aral @andreipetcu @andreipetcu Disabling telemetry is fine. It just seems like most people who disable it are clueless about what it does. You probably understand how it works but most users do not. Some think Mozilla tracks them just like Google or Facebook despite how much Mozilla criticises them these companies.
