That can be their position all they want, but does not necessarily make 
it true. I would not even argue that it would be true if they were to 
make it happen by default.

Browser publishers are only data controllers insofar they collect data 
provided by them by browser users. The browser user's usage of their 
software doesn't make them data controllers, not even processors.

As Rob said, this is an entirely different scenario and should be kept 
out of the conversation.
