Why does Mozilla Corporation exist?

Because Google (and Baidu, etc.) pay it ~ $500,000,000 a year

Why do Google (and Baidu, etc.) pay it so much?

Because it gives them access to track you.

@aral 500,000,000 dollars, which is almost enough to... /not/ be able to maintain one of their supposedly flagship pieces of software, tb. ;)


@mousebot @aral if you're concerned about trackers, sinkhole the domains used by them using your own Bind9 resolver with DNS entries that point such domains to

Most trackers are followed up by spam campaigns, so given that I've only been targeted by one spam campaign, it seems they're having trouble getting enough info.

Which is good.
