A great browser that's lost it's way.

As of 8/6/17 Firefox has begun to collect user data in an attempt to collaborate with Online News Association (A VERY partisan organization,) in an attempt to collect data on "fake news" websites and prevent users from seeing them. There are also rumors that they have teamed up with Piere Omidyar and are providing the information to help with his "fake news" censoring agenda. Mozilla, however, has yet to comment on the supposed relationship as of 10/9/17.

Firefox is much less secure than Chromium browsers and until recently did not have Site Isolation, which is necessary as it prevents malicious websites from accessing other websites. It's not a bad choice if you want privacy, but most people should be using Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge.
