OkCupid urges boycott of Mozilla over CEO's gay marriage views The online dating site OkCupid has little love for Mozilla.

When users try to access OkCupid on Mozilla's Firefox browser, they see a letter urging a boycott of the browser. OkCupid is protesting Mozilla's choice for a new CEO, Brendan Eich, who OkCupid describes as "an opponent of equal rights for gay couples."

"OkCupid is for creating love," according to the letter. "Those who seek to deny love and instead enforce misery, shame and frustration are our enemies, and we wish them nothing but failure."

OKCupid urges users to use a different browser, and includes links to other browser option.

In 2008, Eich donated $1,000 toward California's Prop 8 initiative to ban gay marriage, according to the letter.

Eich, who was appointed CEO on March 24, stated his commitment to equality in a March 26 blog post. He pointed to the company's inclusion of health benefits for same-sex couples.

"I know some will be skeptical about this, and that words alone will not change anything," Eich wrote. "I can only ask for your support to have the time to "show, not tell"; and in the meantime express my sorrow at having caused pain."

To make clear the company's position on gay marriage, Mozilla executive chairwoman Mitchell Baker wrote, "Mozilla supports equality for all, explicitly including LGBT equality and marriage equality," according to a March 29 blog post.

But the company's choice has some within Mozilla upset and urging the new CEO to step down.

God I hate these silly witch hunts. If OkCupid cared so much they should stop using Javascript - his invention.

Can't believe he was hounded out. It's such bullshit. He's not the enemy. The gay rights movement have scored a big own-goal here.

Well, when you go out of your way to deny other people's rights then yes, he's the enemy.

It's one thing to be against gay marriage, but when you're willing to give money so people can campaign against giving gay people equal rights than you're a cunt!

When the purge is complete, Comrade, we shall quaff the blood of our adversaries.

He is entitled to his view. BUT when you actively seek to oppress people and deny them equal rights because of that view and expect to lead an organisation full of employees and customers you are seeking to deny equal rights to then it is another story. Good riddance to him.

So far I like.
It's noticeably faster (for me) and the graphics rendering seems better.

It would be handy for people with multiple devices &/or locations.
