Really appreciate that Mozilla has chosen the death by a thousand cuts approach to killing Firefox. This way you really get to *feel* the pain of realizing how bad the browser ecosystem is over and over and over again.
Even the proposition of displaying ads directly in the address bar is enough of a proverbial straw to demolish any hope I have of a redemption arc.
I feel the same way about my browser showing me ads as I do about my ISP blocking websites, or my phone manufacturer scanning my media files for contraband - it's an abuse of position, a violation of layer norms, and shouldn't be tolerated.
Anyway, very ready for a new generation of reimagined browsers. A louder echo of the early 00's niche browser renaissance.
