So....Mozilla knows, right, that "privacy" has never been an effective selling point for software? Like ever?

And that, in fact, it's failed spectacularly many, many times? I wonder what makes them think THIS IS THE TIME.

Right. And also they're ignoring their decision to include proprietary DRM in Firefox to support Netflix. 👎

I would argue that raising awareness of privacy issues is part of Mozilla's mission regardless of conversion into FX users.

Indeed, a lot of the advocacy Moz does has no clear connection to adoption -- Firefox is a way to fuel advocacy, not the other way around

It's an "if a tree falls in the forest" thing though. There's no negative repercussions for folks due to google accumulating all that data.

all I'm saying is "privacy" is an abstract concept and people might respond more to concrete examples

Maybe they're counting on the fact that something bad will happen and they'll have this campaign all ready to go? :D
