Out (Fire)foxed | March 9, 2015

Tech stories are coming out about how the Firefox Browser which has been around in various forms even before Internet Explorer, is on the way out. An article in Computer World mentions the competition and various new platforms which may be responsible. As someone who has used multiple browsers, I stopped using Firefox for one reason, the termination of Brendan Eich.

Eich, who invented Javascript and other programming, was named CEO of Mozilla, the group that markets the Firefox Browser. Stories on the web then found that he contributed to Proposition 8 in California, that banned gay marriage until courts intervened. The backlash of the online community led to his ouster. The backlash of the conservative and libertarian computer users disgusted by the lynch mob led to the downward slide in Firefox use across the web.

I liked Firefox because they have the most effective YouTube video downloaded, written as a third part app. My replacement isn’t quite as good. Still, I can feel some sense of accomplishment (although Pyrrhic) that I seem to have joined a number of other people who felt the same. Liberals who came after Eich with pitchforks and torches (yet still use Javascript because, well, they have no choice) showed no consumer loyalty.

Something I’ve found is that liberal “boycotts” are actually shaming campaigns and shakedowns because liberals are deadbeats with no money. Conservative boycotts and especially “buycotts” are much more effective because they see the world as a free market. Ideas and products are both valuable.

  1. liberal “boycotts” are actually shaming campaigns and shakedowns because liberals are deadbeats with no money.

    They are also moral and ethical bankrupts, bullies, and hypocrites.
