Submission + - Popular Firefox add-on TACO updated. Users cringe. 3

surveyork writes: Source: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2010/06/17/firefox_taco_addon_beefs_up/

El Reg reports about the recent update of the popular Firefox privacy add-on TACO, which was bought by privacy startup Abine and significantly increased in size in its new update (8 KB -> 3 MB). The new TACO comes with an iPhone store interface, an obnoxious privacy alert box (can be deactivated) and lots of additional privacy options besides blocking tracking cookies. Nevertheless, the users are not very happy and have voiced their discontent in the comment section: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/11073/

Fortunately, TACO is open source and has already been forked with beef flavor: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/180650/ , so people who just want the trustworthy, simple functionality of the old TACO can switch to Beef TACO.
