Sadly, Firefox continues to become a worse and worse choice with its Nanny State snooping objectives. Some people will say oh well that stuff is all turned off you have to turn it on, but it's always been decisively on for me on new installs on both Mac and Windows, until I've deactivated a ton of crud.

If someone or something seems to be obsessed with presenting some over reaching case about security then that tells you something is wrong. And regrettably FF's includion of Google's own expansive, intrusive and highly odious 'bad site' nonsense can only be described as appalling.

Firefox once a good, albeit ugly and clunky alternative browser on the Mac is just a silly corrupted joke product that may as well be written by the government. It's starting to smell like a rotting fish.

This is a blast from the past. I remember this on Mac Format and Mac World CDs from 1997.

Although I fully understand ATPM is not ABOUT OS 9 it illustrates an interesting phenomenon and a real problem for Apple:

OS 9ism won't die.

Look, lets be honest; OS X is pretty cool and has some fantastic features, Unix is a great development platform but Mac it aint. When I think of Macs I think of OS 9 not OS X as will most of all old skool Mac users. When Apple turned it's back on it's core market in favour of the iBimbo and the Unix geek there was bound to be some unrest. And that unrest isn't going away.

Apple needs to think hard about where it is actually going and how long they can live on the self generated hype and spin of their product portfolio which has now got out of control.

ATPM are doing a good job of remending people what the Mac experience perhaps should be about and successfully offering an enjoyable Mac read free from the nauseating hype and lies that has abounded almost everywhere without antidote since Mac OS X first appeared.
