The issue is that I've accumulated a long list of changes I don't want on my firefox, and that required me more than half an hour to toggle. Of the top of my head I can think of:
  • Switch to tab
  • That tiling thing instead of the about:blank page for new tabs
  • Classic theme restorer
  • Placing all the UI items back to their original place

I'm sure I must have a lot more stacked.

Don't know about the US, but lot's of countries actually do that. They provide Food / Money intending to put all their population above the indigence line.
Ofcourse, from these other countries it's really hard to understand why you're against public health, but allow your police to purchase military vehicles.
On the other hand, the US has been more successfull than most of these other countries, so we might be wrong.

How many times did you cross child porn indexed by google?
How many times did you cross with torrents indexed by google?

Do you really believe that google isn't able to block torrents? It's just not worth the money... DMCA safe harbour rules are on their side, and they'd only loose eyeballs + money tightening their filters.

Have you also questioned why if its legal to stream media from youtube / spotify. And It's legal to record it for personal purposes. Why It's illegal to aquire it from "alternative ways".

I see no irony... PGP Can be used for authentication for users.
So you have descentralized authetication: PGP (to authenthicate users and files origin).
Descentralized File sharing: Torrents
What's lacking is a descentralized scoring system and a descentralized universal index system (I have no Idea what's the best way to implement that).

Another issue is a descentralized way to track torrents health...

We are Microsoft. Unix is irrelevant. Openness is futile. Prepare to be assimilated.
