(And please don’t ask me “so which browser should I use?” There are no great alternatives. We live in a sewer courtesy of Silicon Valley. Use Safari if you’re locked into an iDevice, use GNOME Web if it works well enough for you, Ungoogled Chromium if you have an afternoon free to figure out how to install it, and use Firefox otherwise but go through all the settings and turn off the data grabbing defaults – something they know most people won’t do.)

PS. Brave? No. See Basic Attention Token.


PPS. Another Firefox dark pattern: asking you if you’d like to reset all your settings to their defaults to “get that fresh browser smell” or some other BS every so often.

Hmm, I wonder why they built that little “feature” in… Must’ve been to protect your privacy, I guess.

@aral mine did that when it hadn't been run in months. it's probably not a bad idea to ask in that instance because shit could be out of date or customized in weird ways that you forgot about.
