"browser vendors will revoke their roots."

Oh come on who are these "browser vendors"? Microsoft (definitely in the NSA's pocket), Apple, yup owned... Google? definitely owned as well... Mozilla? one is also left wondering about them as well... Opera?

at least with Firefox, we have source code...

correct, if it's part of the manufacturer's feature set, then it's not possible to remove it, BUT, you can disable it after having removed all updates to it. Had to do that with my Sony Xperia... came with facebook and other social media rubbish... Some could be deleted, but the rest had to be disabled from starting up but still take up space.
