Icecat must to port all security fixes from firefox manually. This is because it was too early of a fork. I don't consider it secure. I think waterfox is just a rebranding of firefox. I haven't heard much about cyberfox which means it must be autistically obscure.

Pale moon is solid.

Depends. Opera is the best browser you can use on the market, but it's somewhat proprietary and uses Chromium/Blink. Pale Moon is a good firefox alternative, but I find it slow and laggy. and it's not gonna be here for the long haul. If someone buys Pale Moon, like the FSF, sure, but as of right now it's kind of a mess.

It's the bigger picture, user. I'm sure the CIA has operatives that can get that information from the Chinks and Russians, or they would be willing to hand it over for a price. The point is to make sure that almost nobody (totally anonymous is a myth) can know what you do on the internet.

Big data suggests they are since the line between corporate surveillance and government agencies get's blurrier every day, regardless of which country.

If you were using FireFox until now these are not arguments you're legitimized to make
Yeah I'm not convinced since this reasoning is basically null and defers to whichever one you actually like better. Seems like foss forks or light weight browsers would be the reasonable route to go instead of Russian forks which already have a history of being actual botnets.

You're going to need to actually point out where I was defending mozilla. Just because I don't want to use your shit tier Opera fork doesn't mean I support Mozilla. As for the CIA the point is your data is shared with virtually everyone so you may as well assume the CIA has access to it if Russian surveillance engines do. I know it's most likely irrelevant but the point is to not willingly give them leverage for no discernible reason

How do you control your java stuff? I'm used to noscript and don't know what I would do without it.

I run through a vpn to tor using the tor browser. I like the setup so far.

I have never done it but I think you can switch the proxy setting in the tor browser not to run through the tor circuit if you don't want to use the tor circuit.

If you don't like the tor network why not just use the tor browser with the circuit off? Is it still pozzed?

The chinks will never bust your door open for watching wrongthink on youtube. Plus, opera works, and it works very well. It's very fast and customizable.

If you can name a very fast browser that works very well and can be customized and is not spyware/botnet at all, please do so, so we can all start using it. Unfortunately such a browser does not exist.

I've been compiling my own Pale Moon releases for a while now, but I'm slightly paranoid for exploits from javascript-riddled sites that umatrix doesn't block. I know I can wrap it in firejail, but since I'm compiling it from source anyway, I might as well put it to use. Can I compile it with some kind of security-related flags? I know I can enable some stack checks, but if I compile it as position-independent, do I have to enable anything in the kernel for it to be randomized properly in the address space, or does that happen with all Position Independent Executables automatically?

You can control it with the sysctl tool or through the /proc file system or set it permanently in sysctl.conf

randomize_va_space:

This option can be used to select the type of process address
space randomization that is used in the system, for architectures
that support this feature.

0 - Turn the process address space randomization off. This is the
default for architectures that do not support this feature anyways,
and kernels that are booted with the "norandmaps" parameter.

1 - Make the addresses of mmap base, stack and VDSO page randomized.
This, among other things, implies that shared libraries will be
loaded to random addresses. Also for PIE-linked binaries, the
location of code start is randomized. This is the default if the
CONFIG_COMPAT_BRK option is enabled.

2 - Additionally enable heap randomization. This is the default if
CONFIG_COMPAT_BRK is disabled.

There are a few legacy applications out there (such as some ancient
versions of libc.so.5 from 1996) that assume that brk area starts
just after the end of the code+bss. These applications break when
start of the brk area is randomized. There are however no known
non-legacy applications that would be broken this way, so for most
systems it is safe to choose full randomization.

Systems with ancient and/or broken binaries should be configured
with CONFIG_COMPAT_BRK enabled, which excludes the heap from process
address space randomization.

In addition to that, your compiler can probably add extra instrumentation to the binaries for memory safety.

For GCC have a look at these options:
http://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/gcc/Instrumentation-Options.html

Using firejail is a reasonable choice when running a security liability like the browser is.

So basically since sysctl kernel.randomize_va_space returns 2 I needen't do anything besides going full-retard on compile-time options.
Since all shared libraries are compiled -fPIC, I don't need to do anything there to harden, right? Unless I want stack protection, of course.
I guess it would be smartest to compile Pale Moon without all those --with-system flags to harden as many libraries as feasible without going full gentoo.

By Brian Fagioli

The unrest and violence in Charlottesville, VA was absolutely heartbreaking. Never did I think that in 2017 we would have large amounts of White Nationalists and Nazi sympathizers marching in America. It was very scary. To see that on display was bad enough, but when I saw the video of a man driving his car into innocent people -- killing one person and injuring many others -- I was in shock and deeply affected. I have been haunted by the images and videos of that domestic terrorist attack.

I know what you are thinking -- why does this belong on a technology site? Fair point. Today, an email that Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella sent to employees leaked online. Since Nadella is the leader of the company, his words don't just impact the employees internally, they also signal the status of Microsoft's culture and overall leadership. Below are Satya Nadella's words, dated August 14, 2017, as obtained by Mike Murphy of Quartz Media.

This past week and in particular this weekend’s events in Charlottesville have been horrific. What I’ve seen and read has had a profound impact on me and I am sure for many of you as well. In these times, to me only two things really matter as a leader.

The first is that we stand for our timeless values, which include diversity and inclusion. There is no place in our society for the bias, bigotry and senseless violence we witness this weekend in Virginia provoked by white nationalists. Our hearts go out to the families and everyone impacted by the Charlottesville tragedy.

The second is that we empathize with the hurt happening around us. At Microsoft, we strive to seek out differences, celebrate them and invite them in. As a leader, a key part of your role is creating a culture where every person can do their best work, which requires more than tolerance for diverse perspectives. Our growth mindset culture requires us to truly understand and share the feelings of another person. It is an especially important time to continue to be connected with people, and listen and learn from each other’s experiences.

As I’ve said, across Microsoft, we will stand together with those who are standing for positive change in the communities where we live, work and serve. Together, we must embrace our shared humanity, and aspire to create a society that is filled with respect, empathy and opportunity for all.
Feel free to share with your teams.

Satya

We will let Nadella's email speak for itself without commentary. Commenting has been disabled.

I've already switched to Waterfox. I don't know where I'll go when I can't use my favorite extensions anymore. I refuse to use any browser without Self Destructing Cookies, uBlock Origin, HTTPS Everywhere, NoScript, and h264ify. Cuntzilla wants to mark them all as legacy and make me change settings to use them and will eventually make them incompatible. I'm extremely angry. Angry enough that I'm going just not use a web browser at all on my personal machines and I'll switch to Opera or something on my work laptop. I've fucking had it with this nu-web bullshit. The SJW cunts that ruined the only good browser deserve death by a thousand cuts.

A few years ago some people on Holla Forums recommended that you use a mail client with gmail as email is pretty much not secure anyway and that at least it doesn't generate cookies that track your shit via browser, that basically all the tracking by the email provider would be contained to the email only.

It's not the job of a browser to curate the fucking Internet, it should just give you access to whatever you request and do what the fuck you tell it to do, not the other way around.

Again, a browser should not be "educating" users on what it considers valid sources of news or not. You know damn well this isn't to target shitty click bait sites, it's to target problematic news platforms.

Again, the main idea is to develop interactive supports. Firefox is mentioned in the article only once, and not to declare it one of the supports in question (I'm not saying that it definitely won't happen).

There's been such a project in the French educational system, and it looks okay. They actually teach children how to spot fake news by identifying blatant photo editing, how to use Google and Tineye to find the earliest websites talking about something as well as some common logical fallacies.

It's just some empty platitudes and meme projects, the browser isn't affected by this you dumbasses, they are doing it for the money, not because they are ideologically invested in it.

Mozilla is not the browser, it's the organization developing it you imbecile.

It's quite obvious that a company whose front line product is a tool to access information is going to use that tool to abuse users access to information, especially when the entirety of this effort is the desire of private donors in the first place. Or do you not understand the purpose of large donations from private individuals?

I don't think you know what activity stream is. It's Firefox's feed of recommendations based on your browsing history. This means you are free to ignore it every time. This means that Firefox can't abuse your access to information if you're free to ignore their algorithmic recommendation.

Mozilla is developing products, research, and communities to battle information pollution and so-called ‘fake news’ online. And we’re seeking partners and allies to help us do so.

Links is pretty good, it can browse 99% of news sites, and is only thousands of lines of code including the engine, instead of millions, and doesn't take 10 minutes to press a button or start up.

So you're saying that when Firefox makes a recommendation, this recommendation is actually abusing the user's access to information? It's a recommendation that you can choose, it's not mandatory script for you to follow every time you open up Firefox. Do you believe that a recommendation is a form of coercion?

Gabriel Davis
Gabriel Davis

I'm not sure if it's coercion, but recommending propaganda is definitely immoral.

Dominic Harris
Dominic Harris

Do you believe that a recommendation is a form of coercion?

Nice straw man, I said no such thing.

Mozilla is using its powerful position between the www and the user to promote websites and with that viewpoints in exchange for money (or something else), at the expense of those that are not "recommended". In this way they are not providing a neutral tool to the user, but elevating themselves to "curators" who manipulate the flow of information by definition, primarily to serve themselves.

Gavin Lee
Gavin Lee

It's not a straw man if the topic was about Firefox's way to abuse the user's access to information. Somebody asserted that Mozilla intends to use Firefox activity stream to make this happen. You have demonstrated ignorance about what is activity stream is. Let's pretend that activity stream does work the way you assert it does: it promotes websites with certain viewpoints in exchange for money. I've asserted that it's trivial to reject and ignore such recommendations and therefore, this feature cannot abuse the user's access to information. In actuality, Firefox activity stream won't be designed to work in that way so therefore you have created a strawman argument and FUD about a future Firefox feature.

What I would consider Firefox's "abuse in the way it provides access to information" is if Firefox edited a web page to show a different message than what originated on the web server. This is the only way that I could agree that "Firefox abuses user information access". When Firefox makes a recommendation, that's not the same as abusing the user.

The thing about all propaganda and morality is that it is inherently subjective. Something that you consider propaganda can easily be another person's truth.

Our MVP Team is also responsible for A/B Testing and for building our experimentation and data processing infrastructure. One interesting experiment we have been working on for the past while is integrating Pocket into Activity Stream. This takes the form of the Top Stories section in Activity Stream
and shows up right after the Search and Top Sites sections. Many kudos to Christian Sadilek over on the BizDev Team for the great work on landing this feature and hacking on the Activity Stream code base

It does, see above.

I've asserted that it's trivial to reject and ignore such recommendations and therefore, this feature cannot abuse the user's access to information.
No, it is not the users duty to actively evade propaganda from an ostensibly neutral tool, Mozilla is overstepping its boundaries. Your insistence on the hypothetical shows that you know very well that in reality "many" will not ignore it, otherwise publishers would not pay to be put on there.

In actuality, Firefox activity stream won't be designed to work in that way so therefore you have created a strawman argument and FUD about a future Firefox feature.

Why is ignoring activity stream the same as evading propaganda? For me, ignoring activity stream is the same as ignoring news that I don't care to see. I see some words then I don't take the time to follow it. Do you consider not following a link the same as evasion?

It is implied from the language that is used. Why do you think there are so many white people, white girls especially, who think what they are is boring and have a low self-esteem because they are boring and pale? It's disgusting.
