On a recent show of Security Now Steve Gibson was talking about Google using ping tracking to spy & track on everything we do and how bad this will be for privacy. I was pleased that it was only google doing this with chrome until this morning he said Firefox are adding it in an upcoming update and when its in you cannot disable it, all in the name of a faster internet. Can anyone tell me why a privacy based browser is using this technology and how will the content/tracking blocking features in Firefox respond to these changes?
