Mozilla calls for censorship Anonymous 01/09/2021 (Sat) 22:22:35 No. 20743
Remember that company that made that browser that was worried about your privacy and people being heard? Now they want deplatforming. From their blog site: There is no question that social media played a role in the siege and take-over of the US Capitol on January 6. Since then there has been significant focus on the deplatforming of President Donald Trump. By all means the question of when to deplatform a head of state is a critical one, among many that must be addressed. When should platforms make these decisions? They then take a swing at White people too because why not? Any White person you don't agree with in the country formerly known as "America" is a "white supremacist". But as reprehensible as the actions of Donald Trump are, the rampant use of the internet to foment violence and hate, and reinforce white supremacy is about more than any one personality. Donald Trump is certainly not the first politician to exploit the architecture of the internet in this way, and he won’t be the last. We need solutions that don’t start after untold damage has been done. They then suggest going after advertisers that allow wrong-think, Reveal who is paying for advertisements, how much they are paying, and suggest algorithms for censorship: Commit to meaningful transparency of platform algorithms so we know how and what content is being amplified, to whom, and the associated impact. Turn on by default the tools to amplify factual voices over disinformation. Who decides what is "factual"? The mass and social media of course. Most of you know Mozilla/Firefox turned to shit years ago after Mozilla got filled with diversity hires, but now more than ever it's important to dump that browser if you're still using it. So far I've not heard of Palemoon calling for these actions, and Brave browser is supposed to be good. If all else fails, at least we have Lynx. https://archive.is/hzS8G If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face —forever. -1984
Brave is shit. Source: Josh likes it and shills it constantly. Also it has a built-in adblock with a whitelist, fuck that. Fuck seeing ads ever for anything.
>>20869 I heard people taking about it. Personally I'll sit with Palemoon. One thing for sure is Mozilla is against free speech.
>20871 Wtf does Palemoon constantly screencap your browser for? I had to use it to get around captchas breaking hard as fuck on some really trash ass sites and noticed it does that and has no visible setting to disable it.
>>20874 Gonna need to see the proofs on that one, tiger.
>>20875 In your profile folder it creates a thumbnails directory full of low res caps of whatever you had up. Go look at yours. Under Moonchild Productions > Pale Moon > Profiles > Your profile name > Thumbnails I couldn't find any way to stop it from doing it.
>>20876 >Under Moonchld Productions Where's that? I can't find it...
>>20869 What's wrong with having a whitelist? It gives you options. Isn't that what freedom is about? Or do you want them to completely rid you of the choice and just force you to browse with no ads? That may be fine for you, but maybe there's someone out there who likes to enable ads on sites they like/want to support or something.

I never liked any of these big bloated browsers, except for Opera back in mid 2000's. That one was actually pretty sweet, but all the others suck donkey dick! Anyway other than Lynx, you have Links, w3m, Dillo, NetSurf, Qutebrowser. I used xxxterm (later renamed to xombrero) for a while and it was pretty good but it's no maintained anymore. BTW, NetSurf also runs on RISCOS, which you can run on various Raspberry Pi boards and a few other ARM boards.

>>20883 On Windows it's under your Users\YourUser\Appdata\Local Idk about meme OSes. >>20884 If someone wants to see ads they should be obligated to fully commit to the cuckboi lifestyle and castrate themselves. I don't care how much I support you, I'm never watching a faggot ad on your behalf. A direct donation is a better approach if you are trying to financially support something. It's also because it's a disingenuous subversion of adblocking at the browser level as a feature, which the cunt that created Brave pushed heavily early on while also cutting deals to let people advertise on his new platform. Brave basically only even exists for him to capitalize on his politically motivated ousting from Mozilla and he's been supported enough for being HECKIN' BASED autistic puritan anti-gay manlet man. I should also rescind what I said earlier about Josh liking it because he actually doesn't and just uses Brave's built in ads bux click gibs so people can semi-launder him money past the payment processors - this would be a noble goal if it wouldn't just be spent on more 9chan tier disasters or even worse, Josh breeding.
>>20876 That directory path doesn't exist on Linux. I have ~/.moonchild productions/pale moon/(my default profile). There's no directory named Thumbnails, nor even any .jpg or .png files. $find .moonchild\ productions -name \*.jpg $find .moonchild\ productions -name \*.png $find .moonchild\ productions -name \*humnails I have a few sqlite files for sites I've saved data for, such as accounts but that's it. Maybe you have something enabled that I don't, or the Windows version acts differently.
>>20876 likely has something to do with tab previews.

>>20913 Yeah, like he said, it has to do with tab previews. See pics related, they're basically the same image.
>>20941 but still unless youre a super savvy nerd watching all in/out packets, you dont know if maybe those are being uploaded somewhere. basically you cant trust any software that you didnt write or compile yourself.
>>20944 and theres no >hurr make your own internet then so were just at the mercy of the tides. best you can do is VPN up, dont stick out like a sore thumb on social media, etc. standard paranoiac procedure.

>>20944 That's why there is GNUnet (gnunet.org)
>>20912 yeah like I said I don't know how it works on meme OSes, only real OSes like Windows.
>>20968 I tried it years ago and couldn't even get it to download the COPYING test file. It took alot to build and in the end was unusable. Unless it's gotten significantly better since then that's a hard pass from me.
