Firefox is adding new privacy tools, such as "Tell websites not to sell or share my data" and "Copy Link Without Site Tracking" context menus to copy a link without any tracking information.

In brief: The European Union's Digital Markets Act (DMA) will impose new rules on several tech giants when it's introduced next year, including providing users with browser choice screens that lets them pick a default option. That might sound good, but Mozilla warns that these screens need to be designed in a way that promotes all products equally, not just those from a specific vendor.
