Site.js 16.4.0 released

Tells Google to not track you in Chrome.

Note: any web server that doesn’t automatically do this doesn’t care about your privacy.

Also note: If you’re reading this, do not use Chrome.

Finally, fuck Google!

I don't like that you're blaming others for G👀gle's horrendous behavior that they have to explicitly OPT OUT of their spy network.
If they opted IN, then hell yeah, crucify them.

(I'm assuming that wasn't your intend, but that's how I read your 1st note)

@FreePietje Oh, Google are 1000% to blame. Now that we agree on that, any web server developer who doesn’t take 5 minutes (that’s what it took for Site.js) to add this to their server and turn it on by default is also complicit.

@aral @FreePietje I really disagree on this.

If people want to use chrome and get tracked that's fine. It's not fine to say every web server dev now has to add something to their software to prevent people from hurting themselves.

There is only one bad guy here...

@aral @FreePietje It's not even news that Google spies on people using Chrome. That's just the price of admission.

Google is irredeemably evil. I'm not even surprised they added more tracking.

The only real problem is that people keep using that shit.

Putting the responsibility on thousands of devs to circumvent people using a shitty browser is a joke, IMO.

Next month Google will just break your circumvention and then by your very logic you're complicit in Google's evil.

@aral I don't know if this actually helps any, but adds random searches into your search history. But Google would know that you visited the site still!
