After “Firefox to Track User Data?” post, there were lots of bad comments regarding this new feature.

How does it sound? I’ll start with a quote from John’s Blog which should explain everything:
So we asked ourselves what we can do to help unlock some of this latent potential — and started thinking about whether there’s a project we can do at Mozilla that does a few things:
Collects & shares data in a way that embodies the user control & privacy options which are at Mozilla’s core.

As a result I’ve asked John to take on the role of CEO of the Mozilla Corporation, and John has agreed.
With the upcoming Firefox 3 release, Mozilla team is currently working on a new Mozilla.org web page look. Its landing page should be finished somewhere in December, as for now, here’s a first look to Firefox product page on which they are still working.
