Mozilla has announced it will start showing sponsored content to Firefox users in the United States. The company stresses it will respect the privacy of users. That’s possible because the personalization of the sponsored content will be done on the client side, according to the browser developer.


I wish I could believe Mozilla’s privacy claims. However, over the past few years, Mozilla has done some things that make me question whether their word can be trusted at all.
