You mad because that's how overclock.net(and a lot of other sites) stays in business? Besides this is not even what the article is talking about.

That was 10 years ago... You dont think things can change? Now with everyones information availabel on the web you can track down anyone you want. By opting out of being tacked you can take a step closer to be anonymous.

Im not going into this 9/11 crap. Thats way over used and in this case used out of context.

I have a feeling your over 40 because your so set in your ways.



I myself would not like to be tracked. I dont have anything to hide, but it would be nice to know i can watch miley cyrus videos without everyone knowing....

That's cool man that you don't want to be tracked. That is your choice. It's always good to have that option. That's not really what I'm arguing anyway. I was more or less talking about the way the CEO went about saying it. It was so condescending. Read my original post more carefully.

BTW you can track people anyway just using Facebook.

I'm also 24.

Wouldn't surprise me if the amount of Firefox users increases drastically from this.

I for one am going to be reinstalling Firefox because of this.... eventually.

I really like Chrome but am sick of seeing the same damn advertisements from Tigerdirect or Newegg ALL THE TIME, even after I clear my cache, cookies, and all that jazz.

Use AdBlock
post #57 of 94
I love my FF. I never use anything but.

And as much as you may not like it, I don't mind that they track me because it doesn't change my internet experience, except that I get ads that are relevant to me. Before Google started getting such a good handle on targeted advertising, I used to get inundated by ads for everything from cheap Korean cars to Tampax to Match.com. (I am married man who would be caught dead before driving a cheap car) I would rather see ads from Tiger and Newegg because sometimes they hit their mark and I see something I like and buy it.

EDIT: Like right now at the top of the page I am seeing an ad for Adobe CS5 with the new Rapousse Tool. I am a CS3 user and they know it because I search for a lot of tutorials and demo videos on Photoshop techniques. Now I'm curious about what this "Rapousse Tool" is and I intend to find out because it may be something cool that will make my job easier.

See? It might just be crazy enough to work.

There's a good chance that he doesn't use that either. I don't. I also block all ads and all tracking scripts. I'm not a privacy nutcase, but I only approve of tracking that I am aware of and in control of. Since I can't get that freely with any existing ad tracking services I have to take it by force and block tracking altogether. Do I care that some advertising company has just lost some demographic data? Nope, I don't care one bit. They don't care enough about their products (us) so I see no reason to care about their profits.

Some of us who are closer to 40 than 25 remember the web before ads and being tracked and it WAS good.

After it became commercialized it has never been the same...

What are you talking about? I've used the web since 1997. I literally do not notice any difference, other than faster internet speeds, richer content and nicer sites. I'm not trying to be funny either.

I can start a poll if you would like so I can prove my point. I guarantee if I asked people 40 and older if they feel like their internet experience has suffered since 1997 they would laugh in my face.

But yea, all the more power to you for blocking that stuff. If you think it makes your internet experience that much better then that's cool. I'm just commenting on how the Mozilla CEO said those things.
