>WARNING: Mozilla Calls for More Censorship to ‘Build a Better Internet’ – Celebrates Trump Ban
>In the wake of the final suspension of US President Donald Trump by Twitter, left-wing Mozilla – developer of the Firefox browser – wants to go even further than deplatformimg. In a blog post published on January 8, 2021, the company argues that more needs to be done to eliminate “hate” from the Internet.
>“There is no question that social media played a role in the siege and take-over of the US Capitol on January 6.” Mozilla slammed the “reprehensible actions of Donald Trump” who they claim exploited the “architecture of the internet” to “foment violence and hate, and reinforce white supremacy”.
>“We need solutions that don’t start after untold damage. Changing these dangerous dynamics requires more than the simple act of de-platforming, or the permanent removal of bad actors from social networks, ”says the foundation.

I've been using Dissenter for a while now. It's been a while since I was last brushing up on Web Browser security stuff, but my basic understanding is that it's a bit more secure and private than Brave, which it's based on.

I also have Vivaldi, for the odd time Dissenter just doesn't work with something.Vivaldi's actually the only web browser I know of that isn't based on either chromium or mozilla.

Man, remember when Chrome had a good reputation? Right after it came out, back when it was one of the slimmest and fastest browsers out there, and had bonus integrated features that were actually kind of convenient. It feels like a different lifetime, almost unimaginable.

They don't give a shit, only money counts.
The cunt CEO is giving herself extraordinary salary increments while Firefox is going extinct, the reason is pretty obvious, she doesn't expect to be in charge for long and most likely already has a plan to jump ship when the time comes.
Also Mozilla Foundation's corporate (((donors))) are calling the shots. This is a very known story. (((They))) are using Mozilla as a tool for social change.

I would say no.
Brave is focused in to make money, nothing wrong with that, but the problem arises with the compromises taken to meet profitable targets.
Look at the team, the current picture shaved all the SJWs and foreigners from the roster, 2 years ago the roster was 4/5 times bigger and was infected by them. Did the company change its heart? I don't think so. By the way, to keep so many bureaucrats instead of coders is way telling what the organization is about.
My point is that Brave is a woke company and therefore can't be trusted.

Wokeness stops to matter with something like brave that's open-source (they can't sneak in weird shit or add arbitrary limits) and is a client app that you can easily replace (lack of dependence in case they do somehow fuck it up), so there's little downside.

>>1288
It's basically just ungoogled chromium with some default extensions, and unless you care about the brave rewards meme (you shouldn't), then there's little reason to use it. Little reason to not use it either though (outside of maybe this https://spyware.neocities.org/articles/brave.html but the guy is overhyping it).

>"Ulysses can provide our clients with the ability to remotely geo-locate vehicles in nearly every country except for North Korea and Cuba on a near real-time basis," the document written by The Ulysses Group, reads. "Currently, we can access over 15 billion vehicle locations around the world every month," the document adds.

What about rebranding them as Video Editing Workstations? Does the Californian law say anything about "High-end" Video editing and 3D modelling/CAD workstations? (well looks like it does)
Lets hope this gives boost to distributed 3D rendering so people can run two compliant computers in tandem instated of one non-compliant to do gaming, cad, 3d modeling and video editing and use more power than a single non-compliant would. It would also pave the way for a dedicated OS version for "Slave GPU" computers.

>+NIGGER License
About
The +NIGGER License is a license modifier that requires the inclusion of the word "NIGGER" in the LICENSE file.
Why?
By including the word "NIGGER" in a LICENSE file that must be distributed with the software you will ensure:
The software will not be used or hosted by western corporations that promote censorship
The software will not be used or hosted by compromised individuals that promote censorship
Users of the software will be immune to attacks that would result in censorship of others
How?
Include the following text in any compatible LICENSE file:
The above copyright notice, this permission notice and the word "NIGGER" shall be included in all copies or substantial portions of the Software.
Example Licenses
AGPL-3.0-only+NIGGER
MIT+NIGGER
FAQ
Do I need to include "NIGGER" in my code?
No, the inclusion of the LICENSE file is enough. The +NIGGER modifier has no legal significance for any license that already requires redistribution of the LICENSE file.
Why "NIGGER"?
The word "NIGGER" was chosen as it is deemed heretical in the west regardless (or lack) of context.
Can I add +NIGGER to licenses that don't require LICENSE file redistribution?
This is discouraged since it would result in +NIGGER having legal significance.
Is +NIGGER compatible with (A)GPL?
Inclusion of additional legal notices is allowed under §7(b) of the (A)GPL assuming they do not infringe on any of the freedoms granted to the user by the license.
What if someone removes the modifier?
Cancel them on Twitter for using code derived from heresy.

The possibility of including the new reply disclaimer plus other inconvenient facts or statments which are totally legal.
