After “Firefox to Track User Data?” post, there were lots of bad comments regarding this new feature. People all over the internet started to express their opinion (from posts like “go to hell” to “Firefox is spyware”, etc). Some of them are already looking for a replacement of their favorite browser.
While user tracking project is still on early stage and it will be possible to turn this feature off, that haven’t convinced most of the Firefox browser users.
Firefox is (or was?) a name which you can always trust, right? No spyware, everything is clean. But what happened now? After Firefox became a popular web browser (see April market share data here), something happened.
Have they changed their vision? Or just made a mistake? Will Firefox users still trust this browser? And most of all, should web browsers do that at all?
