@djsumdog Personally I think the problems broader than Eich, Mozilla, or even the web. As I said I think Mozilla are a positive influence.
@alcinnz @djsumdog yeah Eich, Pocket, CORS, telemetry, SSL, Addon signing, secure_delete, experiments.enabled, Mozilla is getting fucked up and thanks to the wealth disparity, rich people are rich enough to make it the only option. I don’t care how much the browser needles Google to make theirs better. I care about the fact that Mozilla is always going to be the best option, and the powers that be are succeeding in making it a terrible option.
1. About the only thing that makes them unique is some cryptocoin nonsense, which they've been very scammy about. Initially there were decent adblocking defaults, but Firefox & Safari caught up there.
2. They cannot have the same level of influence without their own browser engine (they're a minor variation on Chrome). That's impossible without giving up on JS, which I can't see Eich doing.
