After Brendan Eich resigned as CEO of the Mozilla Corporation amid controversy when it was revealed that he had given $1,000 to support a California ban on same-sex marriage, he set out to do again what he had done with Mozilla's Firefox browser: revolutionize the way people access the Internet.

His newest venture is as bold as what he did when he co-founded the Mozilla project, the Mozilla Foundation, and the Mozilla Corporation. He has started a new company that is producing a browser that promises to strike a balance between web-based advertising and privacy. Coming from anyone else, this promise would seem audacious. Coming from Eich, it should be exciting news for anyone concerned about both online privacy and keeping web services free of price.

The current model for web-based advertising involves a conflict between users and providers. Users access free websites that make their profits harvesting the data of those users and selling it for targeted advertising. As Apple CEO Tim Cook wrote in the company's privacy policy, "A few years ago, users of Internet services began to realize that when an online service is free, you're not the customer. You're the product."
