Agreed 100%. There is no good old days of the internet, at least not yet anyway. It has just gotten better and better every year. I'm 37 so I was around since the beginning pretty much.

Very unprofessional of him. Maybe thats a good thing.

Mozilla's CEO is a top ranked chief, much respect.
I hope you all appreciate how RARE it is to see the person who is right actually return fire like that.

He was far more eloquent than I would have been but he basically said the same thing I would have.

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.

I can say that I am over 40 and have been using the internet since a 9.6k modem was top of the line, (hell when I served I used MilNet) and speed does not equal a better experience... The facts are very similar to the credit reporting companies, they track every purchase you make and come up with a FICO score, based on that they (with no input from you) determine your credit worthiness... Now that may seem like a fair, but it's not... You have no say in what they look at or how they judge any transactions that you make, if you pay off a new car payment early your credit score actually drops... That seems just a bit un-fair would you not agree ???

Also when you accept the terms & conditions of a credit card they state that they will report you payment history to the credit reporting agencies...

I have never seen nor read anything like this on a website (look how many times facebook has received backlash over changing its security settings) the fact that you can opt out of receiving junk mail and Ad companies have no choice but to accept it why should this be any different for the internet ??? I personally would not mine if the Ad's were close to the websites that I visit but there not even close and to lastly if your business model is based on tracking people and you leave a tacking cookie unknown and unannounced to the user, that stay's on the users system, is that not closer to a malware type of program without doing damage to just an Ad on a webpage ???

I can say that although I'm only 25, I've been using the Internet just as long. I think you're out of your mind if you say that "speed does not equal a better experience." But hey, that's just me.

Please tell me you didn't say that with a straight face? I'll be glad to provide you with a 9600 baud modem, if you think it would make your internet experience better.

The other thing is, you took my quote out of context. I said faster internet speeds, richer content, and nicer sites equals a better experience.

Richer content meaning ajax and javascript functionality added with flash, silverlight and the upcoming html5 standard.

Nicer sites meaning, beautiful CSS sites with styled divs, tables, input text and buttons with the nice instant ajax feed back.

Let me take you back a few years.

Again your hitting home a point I'm not arguing against. This push for anonymity online is good. I, for one, don't care about it at this point. Maybe in the future. I'm just commenting on the condescending remarks from the Firefox CEO.

HA, so I just hopped on the bandwagon and said, "YEH, to hell with Chrome, let's load up FF". Opened up another tab and just saw a white screen instead of my most visited sites.

Um, Yeh, back to Chrome I go. Sure, FF probably has some add-on for it but who cares, im Lazy.

I wish it was FRYYdayy already.

This may not be the popular opinion but I prefer to have website show me adds from newegg and stuff that matters to me rather than just some random add about a low interest car loan or some beauty product that I dont care about. Better ads is better, even if they are ads.
