Mozilla Firefox’s new CEO steps down after gay protest. And I abandon the browser.×385.jpg

Back in 2008 Brendan Eich gave $1000 to support California’s Proposition 8, against same-sex marriage. He’s the creator of JavaScript and one of the original creators of Firefox browser. When he took his position as CEO recently, the homosexuals had a fit. Eich caved and resigned yesterday.

Firefox has long been my default browser. It stands head and shoulders above the others. But now I’m looking at options. Mozilla has become odious in my eyes.

Google Chrome is not an option for me, because they track your activity, and though I have nothing to hide, I don’t like being followed.

Since I have a Mac, Safari is a possibility. Right now, I’m using Opera, which is also an excellent browser. Neither, however, have the add-ons and functionality of Firefox.

But I’ll survive. I can’t hope the same for Mozilla, as long as it follows this course.
