It’s been years, and it’s still as slow and unreliable as a when I first heard of it.

Improving privacy for everyone must remain the north star for review of proposals, such as Google’s FLoC and Microsoft’s PARAKEET, and parallel proposals from the ad tech industry. At Mozilla, we will be looking at proposals through this lens, which is always a key factor for any decision about what we implement in Firefox. Parties that aren’t interested in protecting user privacy or in advancing a practical vision for a more private web will slow down the innovation that is possible to achieve and necessary for consumers.

The vague way this is worded makes me uncomfortable, considering Google likes to boast how FLoC is a “privacy improvement” 😬


It’s a little bit more complicated than that. The “everyone I don’t like is a lib” thing is mostly a meme. The reason why leftists hate liberals is that they generally support maintaining capitalism/imperialism, as well as their supposed tendency to both advertantly and indavertantly prop up fascists durring times of great political change (“scratch a liberal and a fascist bleeds”).

I’m not an authoirty on this, so I beg you to take everything I say with a heaping helping of salt. Here is a playlist of five ten-minute video essays about this.

You’re right. They accuse them of many other nefarious things:

dismissing critical thinking, and trying to shill centralised biased fact checkers

This has only one goal – to degrade quality of posters and posting on Lemmy, and make everyone a brainless shitposter like the ones you find on r/worldnews or r/woahdude on Reddit. This in turn will make Lemmy look like a junkyard to anyone that comes here and sees the mess, and make them “go back to Reddit”. [Emphasis mine]


Writing a wall of text is one thing. Writing a wall of text trying to get another user banned for… checks notes …being a lib is just… why? It’s not like liberalism is against the rules here. It’s not like their advocating for fascism or engaging in hatespeech.

Reminder that you won’t change anyone’s mind by being toxic.

Now it’s a question of the quality of those cycle lanes.

Personally, I have mixed feelings. I often appreciated how Pop!_OS stayed close to stock GNOME, and I would have loved to see them backport GNOME 40, or something like that.

At least according to lemmygrad admins
