Reports about some ISPs of Kazakhstan forcing people to install root certificates, resulting in MITM attacks:



– people get SMS informing them about the need to install government-issued root certificates

Ultimately, there's not even a need to start from scratch on a new engine, #Servo is pretty far along and having even minimal resources invested into it from outside #Mozilla / #Samsung would surely help it towards a 1.0 much sooner.

If these companies are willing to work with Google, why not Mozilla?

I realize, it would be more work to get Servo production ready in the short term, but would maintaining a fork of Blink be so much easier as similar user-hostile changes pile up upstream?
HTML5 ping tracking – Firefox :firefox: will enable it by default:


– HTML5 ping attributes can be used to track people if they click a link (<a href=… ping=…>) by sending POST requests to an arbitrary amount of hosts
– tracking is possible without any JavaScript, or Cookies
– Steve Gibson talked about it in Security Now 709: https://mastodon.at/@infosechandbook/101899819296611698
– ping is enabled in Chrome, Opera, Edge, Safari by default

10 years later people actually think that it was #Google who nobly entered the browser wars to fight #Microsoft dominance.


As if #Mozilla didn't exist for the 10 years before that, keeping the very notion of multi-browser #web alive and gaining share from <1% to ~30%. #Chrome was a late-comer.
С нашим новым #дайджест ом ваш понедельник не будет таким тяжелым, а волосы станут мягкими и шелковистыми, как у Фёдора Бондарчука!

1. Распознавание лиц обвинило лицо на рекламе в переходе в неположенном месте https://nplus1.ru/news/2018/11/23/bus-jaywalking наша любимая тема :) #ИИ #AI #surveillance

Такое качество распознавания немного успокаивает мою паранойю, да.

2. Дополнения для обхода #Paywall удалены из каталогов #Chrome и #Mozilla https://www.opennet.ru/opennews/art.shtml?num=49701

И снова бой снаряда и брони.

@marxistpenguinist you have to admit that a lot less people using #RSS readers than they did at it's peak, and as a consequence, #Mozilla are considering removing the live bookmarks reader from #Firefox, and sites will be looking at their long-term support plan and wondering how long continuing to support RSS / Atom feeds will be worthwhile.
#Mozilla begrudgingly implements tracking protection by default, after being shamed into it yet again by Safari, the DuckDuckGo browser, and Gnome Web (just the ones I know who implemented it first) and talks a good talk while still having Google as its default search engine and continuing to get hundreds of millions from Google/Alphabet, Inc. – the largest surveillance capitalist in the world. (Mozilla Corp is ~entirely funded by surveillance capitalism.)

Changing Our Approach to Anti-tracking
@shura @rplatonov да, #mozilla становится тормозной, совсем погрязла в бюрократии. Хватается за кучу проектов, распыляя силы, а тем временем доля #firefox всё падает и падает
Я так и знал!
#Mozilla уличила #Google в замедлении #YouTube в сторонних браузерах
Let's make the Web free again, support open standards/protocols and decentralize everything.
