Mozilla's Asa Dotzler told Apple, Google and Microsoft to stop being evil and no longer add unwanted plug-ins to Firefox:
Open Saucer Asa Dotzler says he has had a gutsful of Apple, Microsoft and Google installing software plug-ins, without permission, into the Mozilla Foundations Firefox Web browser. Writing in the Foundation's bog, Dotzler, who is Mozilla's community coordinator told the outfits to "stop being evil."
Microsoft , Google, Apple, and others think that it is an OK practice to add plug-ins to Firefox. When you install Apple's iTunes, Jobs' Mob thinks it is OK to add the iTunes Application Detector plug-in to my Firefox web browser without asking, he moaned. Microsoft sneaked in its Windows Live Photo Gallery and Office Live plug-ins without his knowledge, he added. Then Google thought it was OK to slip a Google Update plug-in into Firefox Google Earth or Google Chrome is installed.
