One of those companies' (here) business is web browsers, and the other one's is data. I doubt that MozCorp will fuck around with my personal information, but I'm 100% confident any and all third parties would do so.

So cynical! The other one's business is privacy. Or don't you believe ethics are possible? Do you trust an escrow company to hold your money when you buy a house? Do you trust an audit company to tell you how much money the company you own took in last year (the business world has depended pretty heavily on that trust for a long time, even though the audit company is hired by the auditee).

I note that the suggestion even supposes that the privacy company have only one employee, to avoid the potential dilution of ethics that happens in big organizations.
