    I thought you were trying to use a browser that wasn't made by a company that's all gay and stuff.

    The fact remains that he wasn't fired, so apparently the board at Mozilla had some concerns as well. As they should have.

    If they don't want the guy working for them, that's their prerogative. But they can't fire him. Hence why they most likely wrote him a big check and said "please leave so we can look good to the public."

    Yeah, no pink flowery browsers for me.

    I don't want to use a browser that donates money to gay marriage causes or that fires employees for donating their own money on their own time to conservative causes.

    Their mission is to attract a user base, that's how they stay in business. You do this by projecting an image that welcomes all. Having a CEO that is against equality for homosexuals is bad PR. To even try to insinuate that image plays no role in a company's success is extremely naive and woefully ignorant.

    Petco is about animal care, but let their CEO be quoted saying "I hate Negroes" and all of sudden they are synonymous with racism.

    Discrimination is vehemently opposed in some sectors of society, deal with it.

    LOL @ "against equality."

    Good lord, STFU.

    There's nothing wrong with supporting traditional marriage. Half the country does.

    Hmm, it's not actually clear where they fall on the subject because they're a company in Norway, which has fully legal same sex marriage. They probably wouldn't feel much need to donate to that kind of cause because it's not an issue anymore.

    Good, Opera it is then. And I'm a Swede so I'm down for supporting my Scandinavian bros.
