As Dell begins trimming their bloat

Not so. The beauty of Firefox is in its transparency. The trouble with Phorm is in its lack of informed consent; Firefox tends to be rather up front about what it's doing, and those who're more knowledgeable can audit the code to ensure that there aren't any nasty surprises.

Okay, so apparently they might support terrorism. You might support child pornography, but until you actually posess some, they can't arrest you for it; there's that whole "innocent until proven guilty" thing going on...
