We will see. It could get picked up by some media person and made into a bigger thing. After all, many developers are approving this at a rapid pace right now, several per minute.

If I was writing an article about this as a tech journalist, I would include that x number of developers have signed a PR trying to remove this shit from chromium. It has a value as a symbolic message.

It’s ad blocking and entire operating systems, or computers configured in any way they don’t like.

If this goes through, they can force you to install any plugins they wish, or disable any plugins they wish. Or make sure you don’t run Linux and only Windows or Mac. They can force you to have your camera on. They can do anything since they make the rules.

No innovation will take place. Competing browsers or software will not be allowed or manipulated into marketed as “unsafe”.

This is a takeover of the open web stack as we know it.

Yeah I don’t know if someone posted it on reddit, could help I guess.

Try container tabs!

They have separate sessions so you can be logged in to the same site on multiple accounts. This is extreamly useful for stuff like being logged in to github using work account and company account or other sites where you just need many accounts. Aws is another good example.

There is also temporary containers that leave no trace at all.

Well we will see. There will be a lot of demand for websites that doesn’t go along with this shit. So maybe we get a web where individuals again are contributing on their own sites while big tech goes the DRM way.

The same people who today run Lemmy instances are the kind of people that are also interested in seeing that kind of a web, and can help build it. We don’t do it for money.

You have Firefox profiles too though.

But they are not as integrated as Chromes and requires a restart of the browser I think.

Firefox is great, so sounds like a win to me. :)

@mrmanager@lemmy.today avatar

Make sure to install plugins like ublock origin. Firefox still supports this and a few other plugins on mobile, like Bitwarden etc.

Yeah it’s really hard to say it’s only a reskin. It’s clearly not.

There is also github.com/ungoogled-software/ungoogled-chromium as an option.

I think it’s largely because of Brendan Eich not supporting gay marriage. The browser itself seems fine to me also.

mrmanager,
@mrmanager@lemmy.today avatar

And that’s exactly the point. WEI makes it a world where big tech decides if they are going to support a competing browser, a competing operating system like Linux, or plugins against ads. They can also force you to have any number of plugins installed, from their choosing.

It destroys the free web completely.

A lot of us use Linux for gaming now. Supports almost all games. But for God’s sake, pick a amd graphics card if you plan to do Linux gaming. Nvidia is buggy as hell.

You will be really thankful for learning Linux in the future, the way big tech is going now.

Until they decide you can’t.

Googles wet dream to make all web pages like this.

I won’t change. They tried to fight this very hard but lost this battle. They will continue to fight this for years. They are up against powerful forces.

Chatgpt is usually accurate enough in my experience and also what it says below is what i I know myself is included:

Personal data, as defined by various data protection laws, refers to any information that relates to an identified or identifiable natural person. This means that personal data includes any data that can be used, directly or indirectly, to identify an individual. It can be a name, identification number, location data, online identifier, or factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural, or social identity of that person.

Examples of personal data include:

  1. Name: Full name, first name, last name, or initials.
  2. Contact Information: Email address, phone number, physical address, or social media handles.
  3. Identification Numbers: National ID number, passport number, social security number, or driver’s license number.
  4. Location Data: GPS coordinates, IP address, or data from tracking systems.
  5. Online Identifiers: Usernames, account numbers, or device-specific identifiers.
  6. Biometric Data: Fingerprints, facial recognition data, or voiceprints.
  7. Health Information: Medical history, health conditions, or health insurance details.
  8. Financial Information: Bank account numbers, credit card details, or income information.
  9. Racial or Ethnic Information: Information about race, ethnicity, or cultural background.
  10. Sexual Orientation: Information regarding a person’s sexual orientation or preferences.

It’s important to note that even if a single piece of data seems innocuous or does not appear personally identifiable by itself, when combined with other data points, it might lead to the identification of an individual. Therefore, data controllers and processors are obligated to treat all such data with care and follow data protection regulations, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in the European Union or other relevant laws, to ensure the privacy and security of individuals’ personal data.
