Mozilla Complains About The Windows 10

Mozilla Complains About The Windows 10Now here is an interesting piece of drama before the weekend begins. As you might know, Microsoft has started pushing Windows 10 to all the user’s around the globe. However, it looks like Mozilla is not particularly happy with the way software giant is handling updates.

In an open letter, Mozilla’s CEO, Chris Beard said that “the Windows 10 upgrade experience strips users of their choice by effectively overriding existing user preferences for the Web browser and other apps” and that they have tried to work things out but it did not result in any meaningful progress. And this is why they have decided to go public. In addition to that, he claims that it is now much harder for people to use the third party apps and change the default.

Personally, I have found this to be quite the opposite, at least the last part.

Chris ended the letter stating that “Mozilla strongly urges you to reconsider your business tactic here and again respect people’s right to choice and control of their online experience by making it easier, more obvious and intuitive for people to maintain the choices they have already made through the upgrade experience. It should be easier for people to assert new choices and preferences, not just for other Microsoft products, through the default settings APIs and user interfaces.”

What is your take on this?
