I just started writing my first Firefox Extension (you can try it – but warning – it has just been written by me and this is my first extension). It’s designed to automatically help you boycott certain websites. In the current implementation it just redirects to a WebCott blocked page on my website.
Anyway the two items I am blocking are:
- All Fox News / News Corp properties – I am really tired of going there accidentally from Google News, I don’t want to support them with my advertising views/clicks.
- Websites that don’t support Linux (not currently any sites!)
So, I thought I would ask the planet, what would you boycott (for the Linux part)? What sites do you want to see included? (I will remove all links before posting)
Should I include sites that have partial functionality (aka Netflix let’s you arrange the next DVD right?) or items that work, you just have to use Wine? (aka Steam and friends) or how about sites partially owned by competitors (thing MSNBC).. I don’t have a great formula for this yet… Perhaps just start with sites that just block Linux users outright (or use ActiveX , etc). What do you think? What sites just don’t work for you at all?
