@TheGibson alternative browser _core_ actually.
I mean, I'm using badwolf, but it's a thin wrapper around webkit. The webkit core has some issues also.
Course Adrian on here is writing one, but I don't ... I don't have the link to it just now.
@thegibson the problem is that web standards are so complex nowadays that writing a compatible browser would be a massive amount of work 😔
Although you could make something built off of something like servo, which while kindof a part of mozilla, it's better than nothing
@thegibson that would be an experiment for bounty-driven development. write the spec. write the impl.
... in Ada/SPARK!
@thegibson billionaires are all like... "well, what else is there left to spend my money on???" they could fill the campaigns on all of GoFundMe, IndieGoGo, BountySource et al in a day if they wanted to.
@TheGibson Earlier today I figured out how to mitigate that stuff on a large scale without having to touch the UI...
@TheGibson It's very easy to do, and undo.
With that user.js file in place, it flips things around so that the option is still there, but it turns it off by default. The user can enable it for a session, if they want to for some crazy reason, but it will flip back to disabled as long as that .js file is there with those contents.
Any changes to that setting (by Mozilla or the user) won't stick.
@TheGibson I posted it to Twitter earlier today and got what I -think- was a compliment from Jason Scott..but I'm not absolutely sure it WAS a compliment. Sometimes it's hard to tell :)
Perhaps sending that info somewhere else (Yes, you published it, but it probably needs to have some additional people, not on mastodon, see it, to actually stop the hemmoraging) would be a good idea, such as the CCC or FSF ... (My personal biases vs Gnu tell me to avoid sending to the Gnu folks so it can actually help, rather than be buried under tons of arguments about whether the license for the patch is compatible with someone else's belief system)
But yes let's see if the CCC can do something with it... um... now where _IS_ the ccc's mastodon presence (ccc produces several DOZEN possibilities and let's choose the right one)
https://www.ccc.de/en/contact ... um maybe I've been studying Finnish too much but that does not look like English to me. And I don't see the mastodon thing... darn it. I'm kinda migrating a nameserver at the moment and need to not go searching for this right now, um... anyway. That was my suggestion I'll look into it after the migration.
Also the creation of lists for minimal requirements.
@paradroyd @TheGibson there are other projects to customize Firefox thru user.js as well, like https://github.com/pyllyukko/user.js/ and https://www.ghacks.net/2016/07/03/comprehensive-firefox-user-js/
I have yet to dig into these and figure out what I want to do with mine but it might be of interest
@acdw @TheGibson There's actually a similar mechanism for Chromium using a .json file called "policy.json", typically in /etc/chromium/policies/managed That's part of how I lock our Raspberry Pi-based PACs down.
Honestly you can stick any .json file in there and it's contents will be honored. THAT one I knew about. This Firefox thing I just found today.
@thegibson thanks for posting about this! im exhausted! :D
anyway its been disabled
