2002-05-24 15:35 UTC Big corporate empires are forcing Mozilla to breach users' privacy (honest)

Think of some of the silliest features that a web browser could have. High up on that list, I posit, would be a confirmation dialog that appears for every image on a Web site, asking the user whether or not the user wants to see the image. (Even morse thinks this is bad UI!)

And yet, people want this feature!

It has to be admitted, Mozilla actually had this feature for a long time, but a crash caused it to be (understandably) yanked without debate. I'm sure it won't surprise anyone that the people who want this feature are those that show signs of paranoid belief in conspiracy theories...
