Mozilla calls Medium a friend in their anti-establishment , and I’m reminded how Medium’s first party tracking is extremely user hostile .
“If you have uBlock or similar, it appears medium logs all analytics pings into HTML5 LocalStorage and will keep retrying to send them (and apparently periodically change domains and subdomains to try and send them). I had tens of thousands of entries in localStorage.”
@andreas Getting tinfoil hat vibes from Mozilla...
There's no reason to trust them with anything anymore when they are lying everywhere they can and engaging in this bullshity ad campaigns.
There's no "establishment". There's wild tech capitalism. Can't say "F U Google" tho when you survive on their money. You go say bs like "unfck the internet" when you're the culprit as you took the best browser out there and disemboweled it as you enriched C*O types with Google money.
I do keep FF around on desktop for occasional online shopping or for truly bullshity website, or for when I need to use my uni's library proxy (which is like almost never).
Adblock in Qute is somewhat lacky but a pretty decent one is coming soon https://github.com/qutebrowser/qutebrowser/pull/5317#pullrequestreview-499010612
