Use Librewolf and Tor 😉
LibreWolf is a light Firefox fork which is dependent of upstream and hard code changes.
Tweaking configuration, applying little patches, re-building in custom setup and re-branding won’t be enough.
The best would be promoting or helping Pale Moon development to not doing the same in addition to arising that an HyperbolaBSD main developer and author is working with them to develop their browser based on UXP.
By reading through the article I see that Firefox is going to support adblocking techniques, while Chrome is going to remove them.
Am I missing something?
Yeah, I don’t get why the rest of the comments here are shooting against both. Firefox is 100% doing the right thing here.
The reality is more nuanced than this. Wrote up my thoughts on my blog: A layered approach to content blocking.
Strictly speaking about content filtering:
declarativeNetRequestis honestly a good thing for like 80% of websites. But there’s that 20% that’ll need privileged extensions. Content blocking should use a layered approach that lets users selectively enable a more privileged layer. Chromium will instead be axing the APIs required for that privileged layer; Firefox’s permission system is too coarse to support a layered approach.
@tristan fortunately I stopped using both
@Shishimaru, what do you use instead?
(The article notes that Firefox is going to continue to support a wide ranger of ad-blocking, while Chrome is not.)
I thought the answer was going to be Falkon, but it ended up being an ad response…
Sorry to hear that
He went back to Internet Explorer
What do you use rn? Just asking.
So basically, Chrome…
