Mozilla (Firefox), is not the only organization to declare privacy and anonymity are the front and center of the software they make, yet they’re probably the most prominent force exists on the web today. (another noteworthy privacy promoting example would be the Tor project)
How Mozilla protects our privacy
- Do Not Track – A feature in Firefox that helps put you in control of the way your information is collected and used online.
- Lightbeam – A Firefox add-on, allows you to see the first and hidden third party sites you interact with on the Web.
- Webmaker – Free resources and teaching guides from Mozilla, to help educate about privacy.
- Privacy Principles – Mozilla’s six privacy principles, stem from theeir Manifesto and inform how they develop their websites, products and services.
- Firefox privacy add-ons.
The greatest ingredient inside Mozilla’s privacy formula, is probably the fact it’s an open source project, thus everything Mozilla developers makes, inevitably becomes transparent to anyone interested. This is just one of the pros you get, when choosing to use open source software & technologies.
If you’re interested, give Firefox a whirl today.
