What ever happened to Firefox users being in control of their browsing experience; what's this, the fifth 'hidden' sneakware 'Extension' ?

Did either of you view the Intro Video about FlyWeb?

Other than something for the developers to do a celebratory circle jerk over.
Maybe as part of "mobile" but the IoT on "desktop"?
