Web Tide

Firefox just released version 62, with more useless ad-friendly features added and more useful features removed.

I suspect in a year or two, I will wind down this site and my other link blog site as the web is becoming more hassle than it’s worth. That’s not a firm decision, but the way I am leaning as without a good browser to use it’s very difficult to do anything else.

Mozilla could’ve kept Firefox relevant with a strong 20-25% market share if they’d done mostly what I recommended over the years. Instead, I was banned from even discussing it. There’s no vindication in being right. The world would’ve been better if Firefox has stayed around to compete. Instead it’s now below 10% market share and dropping all the time. Effectively, it’s already in hospice well on its way to the grave.

And, as always, fuck Mozilla and fuck the Firefox developers!
