@aral ı wonder what browser you are using. ı also wonder why mastodon doesn't have a non-js version (ı'm not a fan of firefox nor chromium nor konqueror either)
@aral @onat I suppose I don't really have that much of an issue with that considering that if you aren't running Mastodon locally, you're putting your data on someone else's machine... sending login credentials to another machine ... etc.
That host ( brutaldon.org ) is currently hosted by @djsundog .
I don't believe it is hard to host locally - so that's an option. It is 'small web' in my opinion (:
@aral Yes, Mozilla's CEO is also not a great role model and not every decision for e.g. Firefox was perfect. It might be Big Tech and not I can see why you wouldn't call them ally. But to me Mozilla (or their products) seem not as bad as GAFAM (or their products). I'm reluctant to call Mozilla an enemy among the ranks of evilness as other Big Tech.
Do you think some differentiated judgement does make sense or really they don't deserve getting cut any slack?
@floppy If anything they’re worse: they have everyone believing they’re a not-for-profit fighting for human rights etc., when that’s just PR and they’re just another Silicon Valley Big Tech company.
@louisrcouture @floppy Read the thread, my other posts here, (or the Mozilla section in https://ar.al/2019/01/11/i-was-wrong-about-google-and-facebook-theres-nothing-wrong-with-them-so-say-we-all/) and do your own research into Mozilla Corporation.
@aral Mozilla is the best we have right now, even if it's not perfect. All the hate it gets does not create better products, it just pushes people to Chrome and it's clones.
@andreipetcu It’s definitely not the “best we have right now.” That’s probably GNOME Web in terms of ethics. Sadly, it’s the “best we have under the Silicon Valley model.”
And there, again, folks should use it without being used by it by using Librewolf instead.
What we need is a to fund an organisation from public funds, to create a browser for the public good.
I know, how communist of me ;)
@aral Aral, my friend, I tried to use Gnome Web, hoping it would be a Safari-like trip, but it wasn't hahaha Indeed I'm still looking for a new webbrowser as Firefox keeps crashing on my Fedora note. I greet any tip or advice (:
@aral This is a complicated issue , because mozilla efforts for foss are evident, but it should be realised that privacy cannot be copromise even if the company is unable to make profit without going big tech way , so they needs to overcome this problem. Still we should not forget the tor browser the best browser for privacy and security
