My browser kills them when closing the tab. Pwned!
Why would Mozilla, by default, clear your cookies, history and such on closing the browser? Think of the great unwashed who will cry foul if their precious won't log them in automatically at the mere hoover over the link. Or remember what did they search for a month ago. Let's not forget the fun you can have when they ask you to see why their browser is so slow and you accidentally on purpose expose their dirty browsing habits.
I know, I know, it's not PC to make fun of those technically challenged (did I get it right?), but boy...
Every patient is unique, even if the ilness is well known. As a doctor you must take into consideration every aspect of the patient before prescribing the best treatment.
'AI decision support software' (BTW, WTF is that?) is just a general guide, like GPS software. Do you blindly trust your GPS?
Playing devil's advocate here, since you modified the original firmware by yourself, what proof do you have it worked before the police bricked it?
BTW, replacing the firmware can be considered criminal intent, as you're bypassing the official surveillance. You know, if you don't have anything to hide and all that.
There's something of a mistery to me how one person can't keep his site running unless making money out of it.
I pay 7 euro/year for my domain and about 75 euro/3 years for hosting. Let's make it a total of 100 euro/3 years, that's 10 euroCENTS per day.
FFS, what's wrong with you people?
I get it, you want to be paid for your knowledge. So set up a subscription and enjoy the income.
Capital idea, old chap. Let's force all people to register with the government if they want to use the internet and present to each and every site the credentials issued. Make it a capital crime using any form of hiding your real identity on the internet.
Oh, wait. It won't work if we don't force the people to use only government issued computers/phones/tablets loaded with approved software which can't be removed.
There, much better. Now we won't have to worry about identity theft and data breaches.
....may help them make informed decisions about whether to use Brave.
So, company A makes a fine product but it's managed by a homophobe while company B makes a crap product but it's managed by a homophile. I must buy from company B 'cause LGBT rigths?
Wow, just wow. I don't care who makes the product as long as it's fit for my needs, good quality and cheap (if possible).
Downvote me all you want but normal people don't 'make informed decisions' based on the management of a corporation. They just buy whatever they need at the lowest price they get
I'm not a cloud expert, and been in IT long enough to know nothing is trivial, but surely keeping a backup on your own servers of anything that's in the cloud isn't a huge extra bit of work.
If you keep your own servers for backup, what's the use of the cloud?
Maybe people querry Google first is because it's the default browser/search engine on most devices people own? And it's installed by default as the only browser/search engine? With no easy way to remove?
Please remember we're talking about ordinary people here who expect their devices to just work. You and me and 99% of the readers know how to change the default search engine, install another browser plus the necessary ad/java blocker and so on. But we're a minority so think about the rest of the people out there.
Google is a monopoly (like Microsoft and Amazon) and it needs to be stopped.
... a cybersecurity and ad fraud researcher who advises companies about online marketing...
So, himself one of the frauds.
All ads are malware by default, trying to hijack you into buying something you don't need. So those scripts/extensions were doing just what they were supposed to do: make money for someone. As long as they didn't get the money from the person visiting said sites, who cares?
Just let the frauds steal from each other.
