“Mozilla is now trying to diversify its revenue stream and, in some markets, has different default search engines. For example, it partners with privacy-championing Chinese search engine Baidu”

    I guess even here we will have people naive enough to think that Microsoft loves FOSS because it does some charity and not everyone inside the company thinks the same…

    Google donation is just a green-washing-style move, same for Facebook, Apple, etc. The funny thing is I am reading here: “the truth” despite all of the above having been found guilty on multiple occasions by different justice system around the world of illegal data collection/usage.

    Those big corporation are made of many teams with many people. Some are better then others but the system is bad by design. You can convince yourself that all is fine and this will ease a lot of things indeed, especially about money. But the problems are just going to get bigger. We shouldn’t assume Mozilla is going to get better. Most of entities goes worse with time as people only interested in their careers and money join them.

    I’d rather get article with facts and showing real changes about the governance itself of such companies before starting so say that they are any good.

      Whatever people see is just the good side of the company. That’s the whole purpose of the marketing team, it’s there to ensure no one thinks badly about these companies
