I was reading this article this morning. My immediate reaction is "you're buying a chromebook, something completely google-centric, and you're going to take the time to run firefox to avoid monitoring by google, that's tied into the very OS itself" This is, IMO, possibly one of the most special snowflake things I've ever read.

Mind you, I do see VALID reasons for doing this, such as "I just like the UI of Firefox more", but the reasoning they gave in the article is just...stupid.
