Stop France From Forcing Browsers to Censor Websites ➝


The French government is working on a law that could threaten the free internet. The so-called SREN bill (‘Projet de loi visant à sécuriser et réguler l’espace numérique’) would require web browsers – like Mozilla’s Firefox – to block websites in the browsers themselves. It would set a dangerous precedent, providing a playbook for other governments to also turn browsers like Firefox into censorship tools.

I’d like to see a lot more of this version of Mozilla and a lot less of the other.
