Mozilla CEO Furious Over Windows 10



/ 1 year ago

firefox

Even with the addition of the wonderful, stripped-down, and super-quick Edge browser, many Windows 10 users will still prefer to stick to their usual default internet browser, whether that’s Chrome, Opera, or Firefox. While that is still possible with Microsoft’s new operating system, users who have upgraded to Windows 10 will find that their previous default will revert to Edge automatically. A couple of button clicks allow you to change back, so no drama. Unless your name is Chris Beard and you happen to be the CEO of Mozilla, creator of the Firefox browser, that is.

The world is full of open letters, and that is exactly the medium that Beard has chosen to express his ire that users’ choice of browser is being ignored, and that Microsoft should cease imposing Edge by default for future upgraders.

Addressing his open letter directly to Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, Beard says:

“I am writing to you about a very disturbing aspect of Windows 10. Specifically, that the update experience appears to have been designed to throw away the choice your customers have made about the Internet experience they want, and replace it with the Internet experience Microsoft wants them to have.

When we first saw the Windows 10 upgrade experience that strips users of their choice by effectively overriding existing user preferences for the Web browser and other apps, we reached out to your team to discuss this issue. Unfortunately, it didn’t result in any meaningful progress, hence this letter.”

Since the “problem” is easily correctable, this open letter seems less about challenging a great injustice and more about getting Firefox’s name in the press on the back of the Windows 10 wave. And I’ve just helped him. You’re welcome, Chris.

Thank you The Mozilla Blog for providing us with this information.

      Joel little, did your parent’s consider an abortion when they realized you were going to be born with down syndrome? That is the most idiotic response you could come up with. He’s probably married and has a very high paying job, and you think he is an angsty teenager like yourself? I know you are too young and dumb to realize what microsoft has done over the years to ensure their victory. You would never understand how much time and effort went into breaking up microsoft for their anti-trust cases for microsoft’s disturbing lack of ethical business practices and monopolistic behavior. Only to have an appeals courts overturn everything, because big corporations give great incentives or what as everyone else might call bribes and undermining the legal system. This is part of microsoft’s monopolistic tactics to move you back to their browser. It’s how microsoft has kept dominating the browser market share, which leads to search engine and ad royalties. While google doesn’t have clean hands themselves, they tried to do something more drastic in forcing emerging markets to use their search engine and give them google ad revenue. Which they were caught red handed and quickly backed off and tried to bury it. If you may have noticed firefox had switched users search engine to yahoo during an upgrade on android phones, i’d say you had a point. Even tho it was partially a db cleanup faux pas during the browser update when yahoo bought the rights to the default search engine for firefox. However you are barely conscious of the world around you.

        No, I could’ve had a much more idiotic response, although starting one by calling someone a mentally retarded teenager who should’ve been aborted isn’t exactly much better. Sure you couldn’t have started your post with more fallacies? Why not blame me for 9/11 while you’re at it? Fine, I’ll give a better response. This guy’s reaction (and therefore yours) is completely over the top. I won’t deny Microsoft may have business practices that are less than desirable, but equating the defaulting of browser choice to Edge to monopolizing the market? Removing user choice? Maybe, if you were [i]forced[/i] to use Edge, but you’re not. All you have to do (I imagine) is open Firefox, Chrome, or whatever browser and check “Yes, I want this program to be my preferred browser” when prompted. This isn’t the evidence of our society turning into Airstrip One like you and Beard think. But, that’s just the opinion of this young, dumb, angsty teenager with down syndrome who, through the grace of God, managed to escape the clutches of an abortion doctor.

          Who care’s about his reaction, that’s just how retarded people are, they don’t care about the context, just about how the person presents themselves or their reaction is the only deciding factor on how you side with the subject. Clearly you have no business commenting on this subject as you are still completely unaware of why the EU has levied huge fines and forced microsoft to unbundle Internet Explorer, Windows Media Player/Media Center. Which excluded it from all EU windows media and preinstalled computers sold in the EU. It also has made outlook express and windows messenger cease from existence too prior to the shutdown of msn messenger. You are clearly american, you are too dumb to understand the situation. So you are part of the problem. Just part of the TL;DR american culture. You only read my post because I insulted you to get your attention.

            How would I know you insulted me if I didn’t read your post? Did my American logic beat yours?

            Anywhoo, I’d love to have an actual DisQussion, but if you’re going to spend half your post insulting people, I’ll pass.

    Mozilla sucks now anyway so who cares. It is better than IE but both Edge and Chrome beat it across the board in the recent tests I did.

  • Eoin Mc Namara

    Shame on Microsoft for promoting their work, and for shame on them for giving you the choice to change it to the now outclassed, Mozilla FireFox. Shame on Apple for creating and using Safari. Shame on Google for installing Chrome on new android mobiles.

    • darknessblade

      you forgot shame on google for blocking add blocking apps

  • Bob Smith

    That’s funny, I went from Firefox to Chrome because they were forcing idiotic updates on me and changing the browser drastically whenever they felt like it.
