A New Browser?
You may recall that an old friend was fired from his job for contributing money to the winning side of an initiative in California. The Gaystapo used its power to have him fired from Mozilla. (Strictly speaking, a violation of the Unruh Civil Rights Act; but gay people are exempt from any laws that are inconvenient..) He is starting a new browser company with a slightly different revenue model. I have not fully processed the details yet, but Firefox has lately stopped working reliably with complaints about stopped scripts. The recommended fix doesn't work, so I may end up being Brave.
