Submission + - Apple, Microsoft, Google attacked for evil plugins (pcpro.co.uk)

nk497 writes: A Mozilla exec has attacked Apple, Microsoft and Google for installing plugins without users' permission. "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?" Asa Dotzler asks "That is precisely how a Trojan horse operates... These additional pieces of software installed without my consent may not be malicious but the means by which they were installed was sneaky, underhanded, and wrong." He called on them to "stop being evil."
