Asa Dotzler one of Firefox’s (Mozilla) co-founders has recently did a blog post that recommends that all Mozilla’s users should
due to the privacy issues with Google.
No… Really, really!!!!
I have to admit that this is just about as believable as Bill Gates praising Apple Computers or Microsoft saving Apple from Bankruptcy. Asa makes some good points however on his Blog that Google and it certainly seems to be getting complacent with data private after the video of Eric Schmidt, Google’s CEO said
"If you have something that you don’t want anyone to know, maybe you shouldn’t be doing it in the first place.”
I also have to wounder weather this means that Microsoft are also paying Mozilla just like “Google (and Yahoo and others) pay for search traffic”. This would be very interesting if this was the case as it would mean Microsoft would effective be paying IE’s biggest competitor. While this sound unlikely just remember that the Exchange team licences Active Sync to both the iPhone and Android even thought they compete against Windows Mobile so I think it is definitely possible.
