Hey, #Fediverse, do you use (say, at least once per week) any Mozilla products?

Context: some people are claiming "nobody uses Mozilla's products anymore". I'd like to see if that's actually true.

@rysiek In my opinion, Thunderbird is the least bad mail client (all mail clients are bad) and Firefox is the one real alternative to Chromium-based browsers. If Firefox‘ development were stopped, there would be only Chromium left which would be one monopoly more for Google

@ynnx @rysiek I think that's why Google funds Mozilla.

It most likely pays so no one accuses Google of being a monopoly.

@lasombra @ynnx Google is a monopoly anyway. But Mozilla, for all its faults, still does a lot of good work, and is one of the very few active browser engine vendors. This enables browser projects that are not based on Chrome/Chromium, which I find important.

@rysiek @ynnx That's certainly very true, but I'm afraid Google's money comes with strings.

We need to be careful about what are they.

"Mozilla […] is one […] browser engine vendors"

Hum. Maybe I would say "donator", not "vendor"!

By the way, I use Firefox and Thunderbird at home and at work.

And I donate to Mozilla yearly to thanks and support them.
