Front-end code written by a software architect reads like a 5 year old was let loose in a restaurant kitchen to make breakfast. It's bloody.

@meduzen @piwik That's my point :) https://t.co/Sq4aDt3wdi@lukejones @aldriq …but for an org as outspoken about privacy and stuff as Mozilla, they should eat their own dog food and act accordingly.@lukejones @aldriq If Mozilla hasn't GA configured properly, Google can identify their visitors. Of course it's not such a big deal…@jordanlouis @getify I know, I know. They might still use aggregate numbers internally which is no big deal. Just don't condemn them ;-)@jordanlouis You can use Piwik w/o sharing analytics data w/ Google. I don't say it's better. Just recommending Mozilla 2 eat their dog food@jordanlouis @getify Of course it's borderline harmless. But they're acting soooo principled and routinely violate their self-imposed rules.Basically all of Mozilla's online presences are littered with Google Analytics. They could use Piwik instead, like the EFF. #hypocritesMozilla, warning about the dangers of surveillance as a business model, uses Google Analytics on the same page. http://t.co/OPYmDXJ8o7Google switches gears to stay relevant w/o ads on mobile devices, tries to force itself into the buying process. http://t.co/0O3z7eWXZm
