I am trying to 'migrate' from one ISP to another so had a conversation last night in which the second ISP said 'I see you are with vivaldi....' & I pointed out that vivaldi was a browser. It raises the issue of how many know who the stake holders are in the Internet? Are Microsoft stakeholders because they have a Browser, or because the have a 'position in the industry' (govt accreditation, contracts, track performance, compliance with Govt depts, 'social presence' in the 'full gov. community'). And is it any different in China or Norway or England or Russia or Canada........? That means important people and important money are the stakeholders that count . We are fortunate in Jon, but Dotcom also influences. Are they stakeholders?
@7pot extreme slowdowns are often related to security software. "Disabling" said software sometimes is no remedy. Several users have solved slowdowns by uninstalling the security software and installing something else.
@rtransformation What's that got to do with anything? When you make software or anything and its freely or pirately available to the rest of the world you are always going to have lesser idiots using it. Doesn't mean they are ever going to be capable of using it effectively (ie using braincells to go install better addons, not ever make them though) let alone have the slightest inclination of how it could be better improved in any way that isn't just a further dumbing down of everything.
Go figure really. It's not like idiots aren't easily exploitable though, so that's one reason why evil smart people do it, and they do add to the statistics for other other idiots to make out like usage figures are growing.. but lets not look to closely at what kind of people are using it, its not like that isn't going to have any major adverse effects on the future of things
I already tried...
This doesn't seem related to one extension, but more to a "workload" of the extensions.
And this happens only when launching the application w/ this long url homempage ; loading the homepage after launch always works.
Thanks for your time o/
My main concern in this whole discussion about privacy is not that my data is everywhere, but that I don't know where my data is and who looks into it.
Pandora's box was opened and we will not get the lid back on it. Privacy of normal people is de facto history and no legislation in the world will be able to change that, simply because anybody who wants to avoid a certain legislation can move easily to a country where those rules do not apply or where nobody enforces them.
Instead of whining over spilled milk (our privacy - it is in the open and we will not get it back) we need make the best of it and enforce full disclosure on everyone (no matter if company or states) who stores, aggregates and uses the data. Full records of all activity on their side is what we need and it must be open to everyone without having to jump through burning hoops.
Calling for governments to protect us from the government and people who lobby and pay them (not meaning taxes but the other stuff) does not sound like an idea that will ever work.
The data is in the open, so make them available and usable for everyone, not only spies, sniffers, hackers (meaning the culprits), but literally everyone so that we at least have a fighting chance to vote with our feet.
Browser manufacturers can't change anything in this situation - there are always the ISPs who not only can but eventually do the tracking and are even bound to do so in many if not most countries (data retention is only an euphemism for sniffing).
