I've heard some negative things about Mozilla lately, but this is something that personally moves the needle in a anti-mozilla direction more than, e.g., ads on the new-tab page

Nope! Rust is fully independent from Mozilla (at least formally—that doesn't change the fact that there aren't all *that* many people who are paid to work on Rust full time who don't get paychecks signed by Mozilla. But more contributions to the project can help change that.)
