I have been using Firefox lately, and I appreciate the warning.

About the first link (for those who are just skimming)--much of the material at the beginning seems favorable toward the announced changes, but the criticisms and problems are found in commentary late on the web page. Firefox has been able to work with more independent add-ons, it says, but it will be more restrictive in the future, more chrome-like.

Thank you also, Katzy, for pointing me to Pale Moon. I like the idea of using a more independent browser (I used to use Opera, which has become more similar to Chrome lately), and I did not know where to go. I value your knowledge and recommendation.

Sounds like I'm going to migrate to a new browser, like it or not!
