Any conscious activity is storing and correlating data. It's comparing ideas you have against each other until you find a solution.
Reification is like an intellectual philosophical stone: trying to make a colour everybody's talking about with called "green" with only blue and red, doing weird shit and saying "look, I made green!". No, you made purple.

Mozilla aren't a surveillance capitalist because:
1) they don't control the means of production, neither do they control the means of getting things in production;

Firefox is very important because according to its user base it gets to decide, or not, on which standards get implemented by the w3c.

Do you want more privacy? Check your browser add-ons and your Twitter/Mastodon authorized apps.
Do you want a faster browser? Stop using Windows because it's kernel is a pile of garbage. Ubuntu runs the Linux kernel, so go use it: https://ubuntu.com.
