Words matter and the title of this TechCrunch article "The eternal struggle between open source and proprietary software" implies some Herculean conflict across the wasteland of the internet... the reality is more mundane, but still worth a read.
In this case Google... settling a lawsuit for $5bn US for (alleged) privacy violations in "private mode" browsing. I suspect this is just chump change to them and will be written off in the ledger as a 'cost of business' item and may even reduce their tax burden. Just remember folks, corporations, by some definitions, are psychopaths and will bleed you dry of information if you let them. Pay attention to the browsers you use and the settings you allow and stay safe.
