(...) For individuals, one very effective way to support the Manifesto is to use Mozilla Firefox and other open source products that embody the principles of the Manifesto.

This is a call to action for millions of individuals. Alone, none of us can apparently do anything significant to preserve the public nature of the Internet. But in Using Firefox, one can make a statement about this, because it's open source, standards-compliant, available on several important platforms. Of course, this comes on top of the advantages of using a modern, full-featured, more secure browser.

Since I'll be away, comments are closed on my blog. But readers and Mozilla contributors are invited to discuss the Mozilla Manifesto on the Mozilla.Governance mailing list / newsgroup.
