Mozilla Director of Community Development Asa Dotzler was not very happy with the anti-privacy comments that Google CEO Eric Schmidt made. As a result Dotzler suggested that Firefox users switch to Microsoft’s Bing.com and gave instructions regarding how to switch from the default Google search engine.
“I think that the thing that bothers me most about Google CEO Eric Schmidt’s comment is that it makes clear that he simply doesn’t understand privacy,” stated Dotzler. “That a company with so much user data on its servers is led by someone who just doesn’t understand privacy is really scary to me and it should be scary to you as well.”
What are your thoughts about Dotzler’s statements? Do you think his words are convincing enough to switch your default search? Let us know in the comments.
