Again... please. False dichotomy if I've ever heard one.

Mozilla Apologist much?

This is nothing, whatsoever, even remotely about 'hating free software.
It is about hating having to watch the slow and painful death of one of
one's favorite and beloved free software projects.

And the key concept that you seem to be ignoring is that the internet is
*nothing* without a web browser to access it - so, in fact, the internet
can be argued to have two sides - the pipes, and the window, and Firefox
is the latter.

To suggest that the wording in Mozilla's Mission Statement is not
intended to include Firefox as a major, if not the major aspect of said
statement - well, lets just call it what it is - Bullshit.
