I didn't say it was easy. Good privacy is hard. Creating your own robust software is hard. So the options are to become a neo-luddite, or some open-source fascist. Or accept what is out there, for all the benefits and penalties that are out there. It _is_ a matter of trust.
What I did say was if one doesn't like their options, they need to do something about it. Contribute to an open source project. Call out the worst offenders publicly. Support those that do it right.
I'm sorry you saw this as a personal attack on you and your browser.
