  • But supporting chromium is supporting chrome, which supports google. Not directly, of course, and certainly better than direct chrome, but the underlying methodology is identical. The ff management that caused this to happen should be blacklisted (I’d even support them imprisoned over this). However, knocking ff completely out (including any browser built on it) is not good, imo, as it strengthens Google’s chrome’s/chromium’s hold on the browser market, creating a true browser monopoly. Right now, chromium is open source, but if google becomes a true browser monopoly, how long do you think chromium’s FOSS status will hold? I’m going to venture, not very long.
