@jon It feels a little misleading to call m3 a meaningful alternative to big tech, as some users might not get that reading gmail in M3 does nothing to hide emails from google (compared to reading on gmail.com)
Of course, things like PGP and content blocking improve privacy (but PGP isn’t here yet).
You have finally convinced me to permanently switch to Vivaldi. This was the number 1 feature that kept me stuck on Chrome for so long since many websites I use are in the Czech language and need translation. Even the fact that it's also on Android, it's so smooth and it's on par if not actually better than Chrome's translator. I will be recommending this to my colleagues too.
@luetage Why? I get what mindset when it comes to donating your money. Because you can just give your money to another charity, that won't have as many middlemen skimming off the top.
But we're not talking about you giving your money, we're talking about you doing searches. So, unless you know of another chartable search-engine with fewer middlemen, what's the point of not using Ecosia?
@priest72 said in How to view multiple web pages side by side – no extensions:
This feature has been around for many years in the form of the snap function in most operating systems..
I believe that Opera was the first mainstream browser to actually implement what is now called "tiling" but which was in fact simply correct implementation of the official Windows 3 Multiple Document Interface (MDI) - the irony being that the most obvious software which didn't confirm to Windows MDI was MS Office and Internet Explorer...
This was the very feature which first attracted attention in my circle of tech friends and colleagues when Opera launched in the early 1990s. I was introduced to an early tech preview of Opera by a colleague while we worked the help desk of an internet provider.
@ldmartin1959 said in How to manage too many browser tabs in Chrome, Firefox, Brave, and Vivaldi:
Not sure that is an option on a Mac
Most switches are OS agnostic or otherwise explicitly stated so it should work just fine.
Would that prevent the last active profile from opening simultaneously with the specified profile?
Of course, one shortcut would link to the main profile "Default", the next one to "Profile 1" etc.
And would it launch each profile as it’s own instance?
Why would you need such thing in the first place as every tab is its own process and sandboxed, but in that case you could use the --user-data-dir switch and specify different profile locations for each profile.
I don’t accept the widely held notion that a “workaround” is an actual “solution”
Chromium switches are not "workarounds" they 're part of the browser tweaking, similar to what you can do with about:config in Firefox.
Yandex is terrible company they are using almost viruses to ads yourself, very aggressive advertising policy. I left opera because they set after every update this search engine by default, very annoying. And they have own browser which will be promoted in search queries on all their sites. Do not know why you work with them.
@fabulousmythicalbird No why would you think it is?
There is also a 64 but we prefer people to use the 32 because it is possible to get Widevine and hence the likes of Netflix, Disney+ and Amazon Prime Video working. That cannot be done with 64 as there is no source for 64bit arm widevine. Nonetheless if you want it
