Mozilla’s now director of public policy once asked me, with a straight face, why I was giving them a hard time and holding Mozilla to a higher standard: “we’re just another Silicon Valley tech company.”

But that’s not what you tell people publicly, is it, Mozilla?

Still, it’s time y’all got this.

Mozilla is a half-billion-dollar for-profit corporation – whose CEO makes >$3M/yr – that has a foundation do its PR.

@vgnpwr Links2 is the best web browser. It doesn't support CSS, Javscript and all that nonsense. @aral

I get the minimalism and the need to strip out all the bullshit, but I would never use a browser without #CSS.

Websites are becoming so astoundingly gorgeous.


@tommi Counterpoint: Web elements default styling is simply wrong.

On far too mamy sites, I invoke Reader Mode, read via Pocket, or go to a console-mode browser (usually w3m).

Design can be good, but far too often isn't. Most often to me, web design isn't the solution, web design is the problem.
