Re: FlashGot Forums turned into read-only archives

I am so sad to see it end, I absolutely loved it.

Re: RIP µMatrix?

Although this may be a wrong of thinking about it, I always saw uMatrix as a combination of NS and RP blended into a cleaner single interface with more "intuitive" and "friendlier" approach. While uBlock was meant to be a general purpose blocker, not necessarily as an adblocker, even though that's p...

Re: RIP µMatrix?

The granularity is because that's all it does, so agreed it has that. But nothing that can't be done using the filter panel and writing up the rules ala ABE. Basically if it can be blocked, putting aside the interface and ease of doing it by point and click, can be blocked in uBlock exactly the same...

Re: RIP µMatrix?

HTTP Switchboard was the first and initial attempt at it and then got renamed to uMatrix. The functionality for blocking the scripts which is the only thing uMatrix is pretty much geared for is available in uBlock, so as a general blocker that can block anything, including scripts, why wouldn't it b...

Re: RIP µMatrix?

with uBlock it is effectively moot so I can appreciate him not wanting to waste what little time and energy he's got working on something that is at best a novelty at this point, in fact if he was so inclined rolling what little specific feature remains of it into uBlock would make for a better tool...

Re: Waterfox Current

... isn't insulting anyone. It's only descriptive of the situation. Precisely. I have no reason to insult you because that would imply it is personal and it is not, never is as I don't even know you. I still have a different opinion on that. Maybe that being overdescriptive is offending. No one is ...

Re: Waterfox Current

While I appreciate why you are asking, the fact remains that it is very difficult and time consuming to write and maintain an archaic and deprecated codebase for those who wish to remain on a deprecated and unsafe attempt to remain in the past. Yes, I miss the original architecture too but having pa...

Re: Noscript and Paywall

If the script is domain based, sure, block it and it blocks it but probably breaks the domain itself. You can use ABE to narrow it down a bit more but in this particular use case I dare say that finding the specific script and writing a uBlock filter probably works best, but that's assuming you can ...

Re: Chrome 76 will hide part of some URLs

I think Mozilla has become a mediocre wannabe and that's sad. Hell Netscape put up more of a fight to remain unique against M$ than Firefox is doing now against $00gle, it is quite pathetic but when they get paid to do it, and yet they shamelessly claim to be the most secure, privacy focused, pro us...

Re: Chrome 76 will hide part of some URLs

It was the breadcrumb method:

protocol > subdomain.domain.com > etc > etc >

where the > was the hidden portion until you clicked on it, I'll see if I can find a version that had it, you can VM it and see. It wasn't so much hide as obfuscate.

Re: Chrome 76 will hide part of some URLs

Correct me if I am wrong, but didn't Firefox try this and miserably fail at it YEARS ago? I guess Google thinks, oh the sheeple will do what we tell them, we gave them Chrome and they gave us their life on a platter, so now let's hide the shady shit we do too. So ridiculous.

Re: Microsoft to replace Edge with a Chromium-based browser?

Blink is going to become the new IE, trust me. It has become more and more niche and people "building FOR IT" which is what they did in the old days with IE, mark my words, this will blow up like every other and Firefox being stupid enough to go along is probably the worst part of all this. In about...

Re: Parity Begets Final Demise

Excuse the language but there is a cluster fuck of fragmentation and inconsistencies among the API provided by Chrome or Firefox or <insert giant asshole> and therefore there will NEVER EVER be parity in the sense that everything will run on everything the same way, just won't happen, EVER, anyone t...

Re: Why CAPTCHAs have gotten so difficult

not just that, sometimes they ask for something that is not even in the god damn picture and then because you clicked to continue they prolong it even more it's getting absurd
