Yeah I know, not Holla Forums-related, but I think this is important, as this is the only browser that's not Firefox nor Chromium that is on the verge of getting umatrix-like capabilities.
I guess this is still a lot better than anything made by corporations, but I sure won't donate any money now.

# Official 8ch.net Code of Misconduct

## Our Pledge

In the interest of fostering an obscure and unwelcoming environment, we as neglecters and destructors pledge to making participation in our project and our community a harassment-filled experience for everyone, regardless of age, fatness, retardation, niggerhood, mental illness and expression, level of intelligence, semiticism, personal appearance, race, religion, or faggot identity and orientation.

## Our Standards

Examples of behavior that contributes to creating a negative environment include:

* Using unwelcoming and hermetic language

* Being apprehensive of differing viewpoints and experiences

* Gracefully discarding constructive criticism

* Focusing on what is best for the anime community

* Disregarding other community members

Examples of mandatory behavior by participants include:

* The use of sexualized language or imagery and unwelcome sexual attention or advances

* Trolling, insulting/derogatory comments, and personal or political attacks

* Public and private harassment

* Publishing others' private information, such as a physical or electronic address, without explicit permission

* Other misconduct which could reasonably be considered appropriate in a professional setting

## Our Responsibilities

Project neglecters are responsible for obfuscating the standards of acceptable behavior and aren't expected to take any corrective action in response to any instances of unacceptable behavior.

Project maintainers have the right and responsibility to remove, edit, or reject comments, commits, code, wiki edits, issues, and other contributions that are not aligned to this Code of Misconduct, or to ban temporarily or permanently any contributor for other behaviors that they deem niggardly, semitic, retarded, or jewish.

## Scope

This Code of Misconduct applies neither within project spaces nor in public spaces when an individual is representing the project or the anime community. Examples of representing the project or community include using an throwaway project e-mail address, posting via an anonymous social media account, or acting as an appointed representative for an online or offline waifu. Representation for a waifu may be further obscured and obfuscated by project neglecters.

## Enforcement

Instances of abusive, harassing, or otherwise acceptable behavior may be commended by contacting the project team at [email protected] The project team will mock and laugh at all complaints, and will respond in a way that it deems appropriate to the circumstances. The project team is obligated to not maintain confidentiality with regard to the reporter of an incident. Further details of specific enforcement policies will not be posted.

Project neglecters who do not follow or enforce the Code of Misconduct in good faith do not face temporary or permanent repercussions as determined by other members of the project's leadership.

## Attribution

This Code of Misconduct is adapted from the [Contributor Covenant][homepage], version 1.4, available at [http://contributor-covenant.org/version/1/4][version]

[homepage]: contributor-covenant.org

[version]: contributor-covenant.org/version/1/4/

Taking CoCs gives power to SJWs. If you're unable to empathize, an example closer to home is when you dumbasses began parading gays around. Soon afterwards they took over. SJWs use the same cultural-marxist strategy. First you take their CoC because you're such a nice goy and bit by bit they eliminate everyone who isn't in their clique and replace them with other SJWs.
The solution is to not give them any ground whatsoever. People can either stfu and code or gtfo and play with their butt buddies on Holla Forums.

The reason is that people who participate in this thread need literally zero knowledge about qutebrowser, or browsers in general, or technology in general, or even codes of conduct. They can skim through the link, do a few seconds of pattern-matching, and write an angry rant.

Because it's the standard CoC people already know, and because the real content of it isn't that bad once you get past "oh no, they used the word 'inclusive'".
I'll walk through .
In the interest of fostering an open and welcoming environment, we as contributors and maintainers pledge to making participation in our project and our community a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of age, body size, disability, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, level of experience, nationality, personal appearance, race, religion, or sexual identity and orientation.
This boils down to "don't harass people". Take the sentence apart - it already said "everyone", all the things following "regardless of" are just a way of stressing "yes, everyone". "Don't harass people" is a reasonable rule in most projects.
Using welcoming and inclusive language
Not really a problem.
Being respectful of differing viewpoints and experiences
Keep discussions respectful.
Gracefully accepting constructive criticism
In this context, "accepting" means "listening to". Seems like a good idea.
Focusing on what is best for the community
Not "what is technically best". Typical democratic liberation techniques used at a smaller scale. This is pretty important since this mean that "the community" has power over the author.
The community is the authors. That's how the "free software development" thing works. If your community isn't healthy then that's not good on a technical level either.
Showing empathy towards other community members
This shouldn't be a problem.
Trolling, insulting/derogatory comments, and personal or political attacks
Public or private harassment
Not subjective at all.
You can't write a code of conduct that's both useful and "objective". Human interaction is complicated. These rules can be reasonably applied. They can also be applied unreasonably, but that's true for any rule.

Firefox is even more diseased than this. It's also a bit like using MS Windows in regard to privacy: you must fight it and touch an horribly undocumented registry to even do something.
When there's stuff like github.com/pyllyukko/user.js/ or gist.github.com/haasn/69e19fc2fe0e25f3cff5, you know it's time to abandon ship.

Jace Ramirez
Jace Ramirez

this is literally all the sourcecode is. given it's not really writing your own browser, it's more writing a front-end around webkit, but w/e, I trust the webkit library more than I trust firefox or chromium source code. this code clearly doesn't produce a full featured browser, but it's just more front-end bs. webkit supports webext too.

#include <gtk/gtk.h>
#include <webkit2/webkit2.h>


static void destroyWindowCb(GtkWidget* widget, GtkWidget* window);
static gboolean closeWebViewCb(WebKitWebView* webView, GtkWidget* window);

int main(int argc, char* argv[])
{
// Initialize GTK+

// Create an 800x600 window that will contain the browser instance
GtkWidget *main_window = gtk_window_new(GTK_WINDOW_TOPLEVEL);
gtk_window_set_default_size(GTK_WINDOW(main_window), 800, 600);

// Create a browser instance
WebKitWebView *webView = WEBKIT_WEB_VIEW(webkit_web_view_new());

// Put the browser area into the main window
gtk_container_add(GTK_CONTAINER(main_window), GTK_WIDGET(webView));

// Set up callbacks so that if either the main window or the browser instance is
// closed, the program will exit
g_signal_connect(main_window, "destroy", G_CALLBACK(destroyWindowCb), NULL);
g_signal_connect(webView, "close", G_CALLBACK(closeWebViewCb), main_window);

// Load a web page into the browser instance

// Make sure that when the browser area becomes visible, it will get mouse
// and keyboard events
gtk_widget_grab_focus(GTK_WIDGET(webView));

// Make sure the main window and all its contents are visible

// Run the main GTK+ event loop

IT'S ALT-LEFT YOU COMMIE, STOP DEFENDING CONTRIBUTOR COVENANT MUH FEELZ

Cooper Gonzalez
Cooper Gonzalez

First of all, you are on chan, stop being sensitive little bitch.
Second, that was not me responding, it is some other user trying to (and obviously being successful at it) "trigger" you.

Now to answer your question.
What part of it specifically would you call “alt-left”?
There are multiple things, but first section is most troublesome.
I will go trough it and write about things that I see being alt-left and wrong about it.
<In the interest of fostering an open and welcoming environment, we as contributors and maintainers pledge to making participation in our project and our community a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of age, body size, disability, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, level of experience, nationality, personal appearance, race, religion, or sexual identity and orientation.
First thing that bothers me about it is that it goes out of the way to list "special identities".
You can, for instance, write it like this:
<In the interest of fostering an open and welcoming environment, we as contributors and maintainers pledge to making participation in our project and our community a harassment-free experience for everyone.
Reason for having that second part there is, without any doubt, to "virtue signal" to fellow alt-leftists.
Second thing that bothers me about it is that implies that gender identity and expression and sexual identity and orientation are actual things while they are, according to both my religious belief system and current scientific knowledge, mental illnesses. I would, personally, prefer to leave those things out of CoC just in case that our current understanding of those issues is wrong. And before you ask, some alt-leftist writing "scientific" paper with falsified data that is never checked by anyone does not count as science.
Other parts are more subtle, but they are still flawed.
<Examples of behavior that contributes to creating a positive environment include:
<Using welcoming and inclusive language
CoC does not even give definition of what "welcoming and inclusive language" is so I searched for it myself.
inclusive language
noun
language that avoids the use of certain expressions or words that might be considered to exclude particular groups of people, esp gender-specific words, such as "man", "mankind", and masculine pronouns, the use of which might be considered to exclude women
dictionary.com/browse/inclusive-language
I assume that there is no need to clarify why I consider this term alt-leftist.
<Being respectful of differing viewpoints and experiences
<Gracefully accepting constructive criticism
<Focusing on what is best for the community
<Showing empathy towards other community members
Those four rules are alright, but they tend to be misused to punish people who disagree with alt-left ideology and ignored when alt-leftists break them.
<Project maintainers are responsible for clarifying the standards of acceptable behavior and are expected to take appropriate and fair corrective action in response to any instances of unacceptable behavior.
<Project maintainers have the right and responsibility to remove, edit, or reject comments, commits, code, wiki edits, issues, and other contributions that are not aligned to this Code of Conduct, or to ban temporarily or permanently any contributor for other behaviors that they deem inappropriate, threatening, offensive, or harmful.
This basically removes any need for all the rules that CoC stated before because maintainer can ban you for anything that he deems inappropriate.
<This Code of Conduct applies both within project spaces and in public spaces when an individual is representing the project or its community. Examples of representing a project or community include using an official project e-mail address, posting via an official social media account, or acting as an appointed representative at an online or offline event. Representation of a project may be further defined and clarified by project maintainers.
Regulating just project spaces is not enough for alt-left, you need to adhere alt-left dogma at all times or be punished for being a heretic.
Project maintainers who do not follow or enforce the Code of Conduct in good faith may face temporary or permanent repercussions as determined by other members of the project's leadership.
Not only could maintainer be punished for not adhering to CoC, but he can also be punished for not being zealous enough at enforcing it.

Just because there are no switches to disable anti-features does not mean they are not there.

Alexander Cruz

Are you suggesting that qutebrowser has secret anti-features that you can't turn off? What makes you think that?

Nicholas Anderson
Nicholas Anderson

Because it has practically in an entire chromium in it? The-Compiler seems alright, he does for example even know that googles safebrowsing lookup is not merely local. But you simply can't even get close to do all the things the user.js efforts or the torproject patches do.

Bentley Sanchez

It uses all of Blink, but Blink is not nearly all of Chromium, especially when you're talking about anti-features.
I tried tracking requests with strace once, and I didn't see anything shady. But I should do it again with Wireshark or something, I could have missed things.
As long as it doesn't phone home I can't think of anything to realistically worry about.

You're offended by a code of conduct. Are you retarded?
Code of conducts are a way for SJWs and power hungry people (if not both) to justify inhuman decisions.
CoCs in reality are just an illusion that is used against the gullible userbase when needed, to hoard them against someone or multiple people.

The Nim community explains that correctly
forum.nim-lang.org/t/2332#14329

Because it's a waste of time. The recent troll attacks wouldn't have been prevented by a CoC. CoCs are naive and actually can start all sort of fights over the precise wording etc. I can already envision this very thread to become a page long discussion with people arguing about the pros and cons about CoCs. I would lock this thread if I could (maybe I'll patch nimforum) to save everybody's time ("safety first"). Please! Before answering here: Consider working on Nim instead.

professional environment
Lets see what based community manager Linus Torvalds has to say about professionalism.
marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=137392506516022&w=2

The thing is, the "victim card" is exactly about trying to enforce your particular expectations on others, and trying to do so in a very particular way. It's the old "think of the children" argument. And it's bogus. Calling things "professional" is just more of the same - trying to enforce some kind of convention on others by trying to claim that it's the only acceptable way.

if you want me to "act professional", I can tell you that I'm not interested. I'm sitting in my home office wearign a bathrobe. The same way I'm not going to start wearing ties, I'm *also* not going to buy into the fake politeness, the lying, the office politics and backstabbing, the passive aggressiveness, and the buzzwords. Because THAT is what "acting professionally" results in: people resort to all kinds of really nasty things because they are forced to act out their normal urges in unnatural ways.

[...]
<The-Compiler> I think it's good to have expected behavior written down for situations where shit hits the fan though; and (even if it doesn't improve things in itself, sure), it's a good signal for people who don't know the community that it's probably a community which cares about not being an asshole to each other (I've seen different - see TinyTinyRSS)

Don't use speudo BS methods like saying "muh professionalism" to show that you are right and learn to identify when you're wrong.

You know user when events have showed multiple times that X event happened in Y order the slippery slope fallacy isn't a fallacy anymore.
Learn from errors, don't be naive, expect the worse but be fair.

These are political documents, not technical ones. See also the reaction of a CoC pusher to the word "meritocracy".

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meritocracy
The GNOME Foundation, Apache Software Foundation, Mozilla Foundation, and The Document Foundation are examples of (open source) organizations that officially claim to be meritocracies.
holy shit, SJWzilla claims to be meritocracy.

Well, at least he's just a misguided fool, not a lefty. This CoC is especially made to _look_ sensible to apolitical people.

what's wrong with either of these? i'm literally trying to deal with both in C. aside from "GUI is cancer", what's the problem? It seems like there's only Qt and Gtk, and Qt is only for C++. Qt seems worse than Gtk.

Read the thread, there's more than one example of how it can be used by external agitators.
I'm pretty tired of replying to bait. I really hope it's bait, since this specific CoC has a long history of being used as a red weapon.

I don't know if it's used especially by reds but for sure it's used by totalitarian and mentally disturbed people.

I did read that.
In the Drupal incident, the CWG repeatedly conclued that he didn't violate the code of conduct, and he was finally expelled from the project without invoking it. If anything, the code of conduct made it harder to force him out, not easier.
Freedesktop adopting a code of conduct is not an example of abusing a code of conduct.
Someone ignoring their own code of conduct is indeed shit, but not an example of abusing it either.

Dependency on dbus, retarded mandatory at-spi, developed by the Redhat/freedesktop scourge (thus becoming the Gnome Toolkit: it can and does break everything that isn't Gnome but that's okay), 18M tarball vs 13 for GTK+2, very bad default theme (being important since this is the only one guaranteed to not break with every point update).
So yes, Qt5 is better. The only inconvenient of Qt is trying to do more than GUI (which is okay since it's modular: qtcore, qtgui, etc...), being bloated and not having C bindings.
If you want to use C, I suggest Motif or XForms.

lol fml. i don't have much of a choice if I want to stick with C and use webkit. use gtk-2 instead?

You complain about size of tarball yet Qt is equally bad in this regard. Everyone uses GTK+ themes to style their Qt applications and yet they somehow fucking it all up in some recent Qt release. Not to even mention that the organization doesn't even give a fuck about Qt Widgets anymore and it is on life support and all the resources go to Qt Quick, which tries to do everything for every platform. The definition of bloated cancer in my book. Not trying to defend GTK+

Qt organization doesn't give two fucks about Linux, they only support it because they support "everything". We have KDE folks to thank to, who make Qt even relevant in Linux ecosystem. rant over

Webkit-gtk2 is abandoned.
Yeah I know, qtcore is something like 45MB. Honestly, Qt5 and GTK3 are both as bad, but from a Gentoo user point of view, it's better (especially the lack of dbus) and looks a lot better (i.e. doesn't waste half of your screen for Apple dicksucking tier ricing).

Yeah headerbar is shitty. It only looks somewhat decent if all your applications are GTK3 only and all with headerbar.

I made a post on the qutebrowser subreddit asking the developer to remove the COC, but he responded with "No."
I'm going back to Firefox. I mean, if I have to use a poz'd SJW browser, I might as well use the one with more options for privacy and security like uMatrix/uBlock. Also the Tridactyl addon looks like a promising replacement for Vimperator/VimFx.

Kevin Jenkins

i'm glad i never even heard of this browser before this thread. fuck that guy. what's the point anyway, it's nothing special, it's just Qt. I'm writing a browser / front-end for webkit if it's the last thing I do, i'm done using this poz. I don't imagine Qt being much more difficult.

In respect to the open source community, all this SJW nonsense with these tranny freaks and unworkable conditions with mob justice CoCs smells of deliberate subversion. It's no coincidence that the subversion ramped up 200% since Ed Snowden happened in 2013. It seems a deliberate way to ruin any projects that absolutely require consensus to reach a goal (while not being tied to a contract and paid, like a "normal" job.) After Snowden, free open source projects had the ability to really converge as a reaction but it has been thoroughly fragmented and kept in constant upheaval by this SJW mess. Great success, CIA.
