“These changes aren’t unsettling to us because we’re the organization that makes Firefox. They are unsettling because there are millions of users who love Windows and who are having their choices ignored, and because of the increased complexity put into everyone’s way if and when they choose to make a choice different than what Microsoft prefers.”
————————–Chris Beard,CEO,Mozilla in an Open Letter to Satya Nadella,CEO,Microsoft discussing about the lack of a genaralised default browser option in Windows 10.
Freedom matters,so does privacy. Through our efforts in the recent past and Seniors’ in the distant as well as the time being, we stand as ONE against usurping of user rights.
