I'm a little confused as to it's function. Does it share your FireFox bookmarks or history with other people to create a pool of info? If so, is it on by default? Can it be turned off if it is?

If that's part of the deal, and it's on by default, it would seem like a potential securty/privacy threat.

From reading the short (and I mean short) description and comments, it's like a search engine tool that combines content with regular user rating (meaning things that are "popular" among people will show up more). This seems to be a very good idea since garbage sites that might get returned from a search engine don't show up.

However, I have to question where the content comes from. Does it come from users submitting, or are a users bookmarks and such mined and shared?

Ok. It's actually an excellent idea.

It's a full community based thing. It's almost like a centralized network of "shared Web sites". People create an account and then post what sites, etc, they think are "good" (or what they have interest in). All these profiles with this user submitted data is used and returned as results like a search engine.

Obviously being user driven and not Bot or agenda driven means crap sites and spam is severely limited.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
