The fact that we can have multiple open source operating systems but not one open source fully fledged browser that is not tied to a company worries me. The web truly has gotten way too complex.

@raichoo @LPS Also its not entirelly true that OS'es have no companies behind them. Look at redhat, canonical for example. The truth is that no software can beat propetary ones if there is not enough funding. People need to eat.

@muppeth @raichoo all the more reason to support "public money, public code" something this important should be treated like infrastructure with a public funding model. It's a matter of human sovereignty.
