Well, *I* am personally against of FOSS project ever caring about
certain dubious corporations.

The web wasn't invented to implement certain corporations' terms of
services. It was invented for free information exchange. These
corporations chose to publish their services by the web, so they
have the terms of the web.

Oh, and I'm completely against implementing (mis-)features allowing
certain websites to sabotage usual browser functionalities (eg. mark &
and copy text, store images to files, etc).

Looking for reasons why people switch to another browser ? Well, you
might just found some ...
