Chromium, aka Google, just keeps proposing new standards to make the web less private and secure for users. We need to find a way to stop this.
Packaging up an entire website into a file so individual ads can't be blocked? Also sure!
@makeworld Direct TCP and UDP connections would be quite nice for AddOns, because that would enable the implementation of other protocols like Gemini, Gopher or even Dat and IPFS
@waweic maybe, but even then I'm wary. However this is about any website code being able to do that, which I'm against, even with a permissions based model.
@SwindlerOfInsanity Gemini sort of does this, and it's a great protocol and ecosystem. Definitely simplifies.
If an entire site were to be bundled in one large file, how could custom ads be sent to each individual client?
@taziotoninzo I'm not sure about custom ads, but my understanding is that now you can't block ads until after they've already been downloaded, or potentially not at all now because they don't have unique URLs.
@makeworld the hypocrisy Brave has by criticizing Google and Chrome and then turning around and using Chromium as their browser engine
@makeworld It is more complicated than that, and Brave is not perfect either. Bundles are a very good idea (although of course the devil is in the details) and one of the arguments ("Origin Confusion") seems quite wrong: because resources are signed, bundles REENABLE origin authentication, which was threatened by CDNs.
