Mozilla Launches 'Firefox Private Network' VPN Service as a Browser Extension https://thehackernews.com/2019/09/firefox-privacy-vpn-service.html
@info_activism They seem to be kinda hiding the fact that it is a VPN.
@clacke I know. But it seems like it is trying to kinda stay away from the term "VPN" in the public eye. I guess it has a bad connotation to some people.
@clacke I look at it the same way you do, but some people may have heard the whole, "it is useful, but it is slow and not necessary," or something like that.
That's my idea. Because I don't see them mention the term "VPN" anywhere.
@clacke I was thinking of that too, but it seems like people don't think entirely like that. Some may.
Another idea is that people have other presuppositions about VPNs which Mozilla doesn't want to invoke. It seems to want to present it as something new.
