How fucking clueless is @Mozilla?
Let’s give Zoom 5 out of 5 stars for security* clueless.
* In a so-called “privacy” rating.
@aral Discord also has 5/5. The rating system is inadequate.
@cadadr @tomasino @Gargron @aral a friend pointed out that Privacy not Included is a scorecard for IoT stuff, and in IoT many of the points on the scorecard are far from obvious... It kind of makes more sense when dealing with IoT devices, as intended.
How video chat apps got in there is hard to explain.
I mean this is the company who killed it's entire extension ecosystem when that was the very edge that they had over the competition, apart from preaching open culture.
I still miss pentadactyl. Couldn't even _try_ Conkeror. Gotta give a second try to Qutebrowser...
@Gargron Mozilla is inadequate. They’re not what we think they are (i.e., they’re not what they say they are. As their head of EU policy once told me: “we’re just another Silicon Valley tech company… why are you holding us to a higher standard?” Then why don’t you tell people that? I mean, heck, come on, look at their funding. They’re ~100% funded by surveillance capitalists.
@aral If there isn't such a thing as "privacy theatre" there ought to be.
@aral I voted that it is super creepy and that I won't use it :)
That 'guide' is embarrassing
@aral This is about as useless as a rating for a restaurant that says "5/5 Great".
@aral Go home Mozilla. You're drunk.
@aral Mozilla says it as "Minimum security standards"
