    If you're seriously looking for a web browser that supports your views, you are nutty. What would this browser do, only bring up links from the Blaze or Conservapedia?

    Poorly representing the company is cause to fire a representative.

    You must admit, if he had not taken that action, he would still be employed, no matter what his beliefs are. No thought police.

    I was responding to ecofarm, he said he would personally fire someone for an offense like this. I was simply reminding him that you can't really fire someone for something like this.

    Probably why he left on his own, with a big fat check and a smile on his face. They bribed him out.

    I'm typing this on Google chrome right now and have both browsers installed...

    My views are that I'm pro SSM. I'm just against the hackery and bigotry/hate that constantly comes from the pro-SSM side directed at those that support traditional marriage though.

    Thanks for the judgement though.

    Google makes statement about Russian anti-gay law

    Google and its founders have been outspoken supporters of gay rights since 2008, when the company got involved in the campaign to defeat a gay marriage ban on the California ballot. In 2012 it launched a global workplace safety campaign, called "Legalise Love," that it described as a call to decriminalize homosexuality and eliminate homophobia around the world. The company also recognizes gay pride season each year by customizing search boxes to turn rainbow-colored when terms like "gay" and "gay pride" are entered.
    Had this man worked for them he would have been kicked to the curve in the same fashion. So you are not really making a statement by going to chrome.

    Nope, you can't fire someone for donating to a political cause. It'll never fly.

    "We want our employees who are gay or lesbian or transgender to have the same experience outside the office as they do in the office," Google executive Mark Palmer-Edgecumbe is quoted by Dot 429 as saying. "It is obviously a very ambitious piece of work."
