"Chrome has outgrown its competition in a way that’s unhealthy. My colleague Tom Warren already detailed the deleterious effects of Chrome’s outsize influence, with web developers optimizing and coding specifically for Chrome (and Google encouraging the practice), with unhappy connotations of the crummy old days when Internet Explorer was the dominant browser for the web."
Chrome's basically spyware. Get rid of it ASAP.
@Antanicus I only use Chrome under duress. Firefox even has a great Facebook Fence app when I have to go there also.
But now, I'm not sure anymore I can trust them. No kidding: https://lobste.rs/s/rnaua1/apple_google_microsoft_mozilla_formally#c_3w5xas
Not it assumes a damn sense.
On this old topic, I just wrote: https://medium.com/@giacomo_59737/the-web-is-still-a-darpa-weapon-31e3c3b032b8
It was inspired by several discussions (including this one) but I decided to write it down after reading this non-sense article https://css-tricks.com/view-source/
Would you be interested in having this copy-edited? It's a good post, but grammatical errors & awkward phrasing make it slower to read & take rhetorical impact away from some of the points.
I could spend a few minutes editing it & send my modified version back to you for review.
@Antanicus Very good article. The best thing about firefox is that it only loads the open window from the last session, which is not the case for chrome.
social.coop is a a coop-run corner of the fediverse, a cooperative and transparent approach to operating a social platform. We are currently closed to new memberships while we improve our internal processes and policies, and plan to re-open to new folks when that work is complete. [9/2/2018]
