> Our current Microsoft overlord came to power while we were still too much focused upon our old IBM overlord. In 10 years time, I don't want to be fighting the iron grip that Google has on us all. A grip which we are willingly giving it today.
I agree, but don't see any connection to the current article. Is there a freedom-supporting search engine that you would rather Firefox default to instead? Or how *should* Mozilla be fighting back against Google, exactly?

I've seen plenty of concrete stuff that Mozilla folk have done to open up the web and keep it that way, and their governance structure makes it near-illegal for them to do anything else. So sure, you can be that bold, but I won't believe you unless you can back it up with more than ominous hand-waving and guilt-by-association.
