Mozilla On Plug-ins: Apple, Google, Microsoft 'Stop being evil' [latimesblogs.latimes.com]
Mozilla's Asa Dotzler is fed up with Apple, Microsoft and Google installing software plug-ins, without permission, into the company's popular Firefox Web browser.

So much so that he told the tech giants in a post on his blog this week to "stop being evil," evoking the Google mantra of "don't be evil."

"Why do Microsoft, Google, Apple, and others think that it is an OK practice to add plug-ins to Firefox when I'm installing their software packages," Dotzler wrote.

"When I installed iTunes, in order to manage my music collection and sync to my iPod, why did Apple think it was OK to add the iTunes Application Detector plug-in to my Firefox web browser without asking me?"
