The annoyances of proprietary Firefox extensions

I don't see a problem with the way Sxipper user interface is implemented; you may or may not like what it does, but if you do, they seem to have done it right. In particular, displaying big, prominent logos is important so that people are reminded where their data is going. If they didn't do that, people would be complaining that they were collecting data without telling the user. Sxipper is not per se a proprietary extension, it's an extension that's tied to an on-line service; if you don't like that, you should just as much complain about all the Google, Twitter, and Yahoo-related extensions.
