Changing Our Approach to Anti-tracking [blog.mozilla.org]
Anyone who isn’t an expert on the internet would be hard-pressed to explain how tracking on the internet actually works. Some of the negative effects of unchecked tracking are easy to notice, namely eerily-specific targeted advertising and a loss of performance on the web. However, many of the harms of unchecked data collection are completely opaque to users and experts alike, only to be revealed piecemeal by major data breaches. In the near future, Firefox will — by default — protect users by blocking tracking while also offering a clear set of controls to give our users more choice over what information they share with sites.

the Chrome mobile UA string includes "Safari"afaik, all Chrome UA strings include “Safari”. The (desktop) Opera UA string includes both “Chrome” and “Safari”. The unifying feature is webkit, and that’s generally the thing to compare: webkit vs gecko (-moz- in vendor extensions, just to confuse us) vs. trident or whatever they call it.
afaik, all Chrome UA strings include “Safari”.Absolutely, however the context you cherry-picked the quote from was specifically about Chrome mobile and its mistaken report popularity with Safari :)
I've become accustomed to the minimal, clean UI of mobile Chrome.
You want minimal? change your settings. FF can be as minimal as desired.

Correct, that "may happen"
Should we use notepad again and drop Wordpress?
Should we use notepad again and drop Wordpress?Ooh yes, please. Just think of all the mediocre sites that would disappear. Personally, being on a mac, I use SubEthaEdit and TextWrangler, but close enough.
We ?I think the line you’re groping for is “Who you calling ‘we’, white man?”
Aside from the above we need to understand that while user's privacy needs to be protected, the internet as it is now will be broken is everyone blocks ads.
