#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.)
@drequivalent I fully agree - up to that "Rust" thing. The more I look into it, the more I think that the whole P2P thing only will succeed as soon as it is *actually* P2P and so eliminated hosting for arbitrary non-tech users, in other words getting it to run mustn't be more complex than, in example, installing an app on a smartphone or a web browser on a desktop PC. Maybe that would even work...?
@drequivalent Yes. 🙂 Actually I like Rust a lot. And we could go on for ages arguing about why Java sucks and why loads of people (including "my" business environment) still use it. But my point was different: We need the leanest shit we can get, but we should *very* much focus on "being lean" on a wholly different level. My ideal end user couldn't care less which language is used to implement this - it should be as easily accessible as somewhat possible, no matter the language used. 😉
