Leaving Mozilla Today
Wuli | 1/11/2021 | Wuli

Posted on 01/11/2021 7:30:49 AM PST by Wuli

Mozilla has decided to join the Progressive fascists.

I am leaving Mozilla behind as of today.

I am writing this while on the Brave browser. It's just a start in the move from Firefox.

After sufficient investigation today I will move my Email out of the use of the Thunderbird Email client.

I have enjoyed using both Firefox and Thunderbird.

But Mozilla has made continuing with them a treasonous act, cow towing to fascist thought and speech control demands.

I would ask all Conservatives using Mozilla products to follow me in the move away from them.

I switched my phone browser to Opra. No complaints. Bye bye Firefox.

How can one know that they aren’t a Google lapdog as well?

Opera is particularly good for text-heavy sites like FR. That’s all I use on my phone.

Has a built-in ad blocker and VPN too.

This post explains why we chose Brave.

https://freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/3923368/posts?page=15#15

Mozilla was the company that in effect, forced their CEO Brenda Eich ( the inventor of JavaScript and founder of the Mozilla Project) to resign in 2014 after someone discovered that he privately, without fuss, contributed a few thousand dollars to California’s Proposition 8 which called for the affirmation of traditional marriage in California.

As far back as 2014 I already knew that the employees and higher ups of this company were INTOLERANT of any dissenting beliefs.

Eich went on to found BRAVE Software, an Internet browser platform company. I have been using this browser as well as the Epic Privacy browser since.

Brave is a free and open-source web browser developed by Brave Software, Inc. based on the Chromium web browser. It blocks ads and website trackers, and provides a way for users to send cryptocurrency contributions in the form of Basic Attention Tokens to websites and content creators.

As of 2020, Brave has been released for Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, and iOS. As of 2017 Brave supported five search engines by default, including their partner, DuckDuckGo.

I heartily recommend it. It is robust and well designed. Screw Mozilla. May it die the death of abandonment.

Why you think Brave best?

Watefox (based on Firefox) https://www.waterfox.net/
Pale Moon (based on an old Firefox version)
http://www.palemoon.org/

There's also Un-Googled Chromium. All of the google spying and dependencies have been stripped out. Unfortunately, it means no automatic updates, and no access to the Google store for extensions (there's a manually-installed extension to workaround this).

https://ungoogled-software.github.io/ungoogled-chromium-binaries/

Restore chrome web store functionality
Chrome.Web.Store.crx


I decided Brave was just browser-based adware. Pass.

I like Brave better but it could just be me. Using “startpage” for search engine. Moved ‘ff’ bookmarks no problem. Used ‘ff’ since Netscape days. Downloaded Opera but not sure. Also tried to get on Gab the other day and thought I failed. Tried yesterday and they have me on. Guess a delay due to overload. Not sure what to do with it yet. I’m not keen on putting much out there. But, it’s not like “they” don’t already know of us. 😯😂🙌🚽

I've used Protonmail for several years now. It seems to work just fine for me.

I use Brave on my iphone and ipads (not Safari), as well. Works great! Hate supporting Apple, but there’s little choice for now.

Brave does give you more privacy, but watch out! they are part of the fake media. Look into the news feed sources they allow you to configure and you will find every single one is part of the globalist propaganda machine.

from Brave's Dec 10 post

"Today we announced a news reader integrated into the browser called Brave Today which can be found by scrolling down on new tab pages. We’re using Brave’s new private CDN to fetch RSS feeds anonymously via the browser and the browser’s personalization capabilities to rank the headlines for users with a simple algorithm..."

A better option may be Dissenter - part of the Gab suite of patriot alternatives to social media..

Gab Dissenter

If you still depend on chromebook then Brave may still be a consolation or you can use a plugin to disable javascript on Chrome with the same result on many web pages.
