Mozilla & Gecko clones The ripples caused by Google's Eric Schmidt's words are spreading further and further throughout the internet. Asa Dotzler, Mozilla's director of community development, wrote on his blog, urging people to switch away from Google to Bing, which he claims has a better privacy policy. Dotzler points users to the Firefox Bing add-on.

Mozilla should just advocate using no search engine entirely if they have privacy concerns. Do they really think ms is going to be any more respectful of it than google?
Still, the irony of Mozilla telling people to switch to an ms product is unbelievable. As for me, I won't be switching to bing simply because, imho, its results are pure crap.

It's really not that bad anymore. Google is better, but I would use bing over anything else.

maybe, but at least for me, I can't support (by using) a company's service that advocates the end of internet as we know it, advocating charges to index content and playing with content providers to block rivals.

The day internet can't be indexed by search engines, is the day internet has failed to be.
