Why, Asa, why?

Will firefox 10 be essentially better than ie9?  10 > 9.  Sure, that’s nice.  Crank up the speed perhaps.  Firefox 42, the best browser possible since we have the biggest version number.. microsoft’s ie15, chrome12, and iron11 are so far behind we win forever.

“Himself,” my friends ask, “should we update to firefox 5?”

“nah, wait for the large scale microsoftesque public beta to end then install 5.0.2″

“but it has all that great privacy stuff, Himself”

“fat lot of good that does with ISPs selling you out with fine grained netblocks geo ip mapped and inflicted in dhcp policy*.. until that evil stuff ends there is less privacy.  VPN surfing for now.”

I still hope adblockplus will be available as a stand alone loopback proxy.  Unburdening the fox and opening the field to all the other players without having to maintain multiple versions.

.

* VERY easy for ISPs to offer an opt-out on demand. Send them a paper letter asking to opt-out of geo ip location privacy rape.
