In der neuen Firefox-Beta (122.0b9) für Android können Addons/Extensions nun auch aus einer Datei (*.xpi) installiert werden. Zuvor muss man den Debug-Modus aktivieren, indem man unter »Über Firefox Beta« fünfmal auf das Firefox-Logo tippt. 👇

Hey 👋 dear Linux Community,

I'm still kinda new to Linux (started using this year 😅) I already made it to my main OS, even if I still missing some things which I used on Windows, anyway. What I wanted to ask you guys, what recommendations do you have for Linux Mint (Cinnamon)? In terms of security, optimization, (a way to make the UI looking modern ;-;) and privacy? I would be very interested in what you do guys to optimize your Linux setup :) I'm pretty technical, so there is nothing which could overwhelm me (probaly).

Thx! 🤍

@MuffinJets @linux Oh sorry, forgot to mention it, I'm using Cinnamon since I liked it the most

@Corb_The_Lesser @linux

I'm pretty happy with Linux Mint so far, never tried Fedora, but I will take a look on it

If you use touchpad gestures, the new configuration options are useful.

Where can I find them?

voxel OP ,
@voxel@infosec.exchange avatar

@keydelk @linux Hm, ig I will stick to Cinnamon, I don't want to run into issues, using another environment which got discontinued by Linux Mint a few years before for some reasons.

Abt the browser and content blocking, is already done ;) Privacy and Security is one of the things I'm very good at, just wanted to know how to enchance the security of Linux Mint.

Btw. I would recommend uBlock Origin instead of ADP is leightweighter, customizable, opensource, non-commercial and pretty well. Since ADP had some controversies in the past.

@Corb_The_Lesser @linux Oh. Thank you a lot! Never discovered this lol

@beta_tester Could you tell me more abt Distrobox and SElinux? I think I never heard of both before

voxel OP ,
@voxel@infosec.exchange avatar

@CrabAndBroom Thank you, but I already covered this 😅 When you check my profile, you will see thats exactly the stuff I'm dealing with day by day, but ty! I may will take a look at OpenSnitch, but I think Portmaster is already covering this need.

@kuketzblog Mittlerweile hat irgendwie jede Privacy Seite, jeder Privacy Blog und jede Person ihr eigenes Forum 🤔 Allerdings zentralisiert, schade das Alternativen wie Lemmy noch nicht so weit sind diese auch vollständig zu ersetzen.

@mullvadnet I wouldn't consider this as very effective about making people think about privacy, surveillance, etc. except the last 2 images in the reply.

@signalapp Wouldn't call Signal anonymous, due the phone number requirement and some other factors, rather "private".

Nahezu jede Woche bekomme ich die Anfrage, weshalb ich den Messenger nicht bewerte bzw. in die Matrix aufnehme. Wieso ich diesen (und andere) nicht aufnehme, wird klar kommuniziert. 👇

@kuketzblog Gerade aus den Grund das es PFS entfernt würde ich ihn gern in der Matrix sehen ausßerdem kann man ihn nd mehr wirklich als Signal Fork bezeichnen da wie du selbst erwähnst er sogar das Verschlüsselungsprotokoll ersetzt hat, außerdem würde ich gern deine Meinung zu den Argumenten von Session wissen wieso die es entfernt haben und wie sie das "ausgleichen"

is making the watching experience worse on and Microsoft Edge.

I didn't believe it the first time I heard abt it, since it sounded more like a conspiracy theory than a actual thing, but it's true. Google does add 5s timeout specifically to Firefox and Edge users when they try to watch a video on YT. If you want to know more about it, Mental Outlaw make a very good video abt it (Link: https://youtu.be/v4gXhmzQztE ). I think Google did this, to get people moving to Chrome since the majority will think this is a browser issue, nobody would expect YouTube to purposely doing this. In the attached Screenshot you can see that YouTube checks the user agent of browsers to see if it's Edge, Firefox or not. You can bypass this by changing your User agent to chrome.

Edit: Due a lot of people saying a lot of different things abt it, I want to say that I'm not 100% sure abt how exactly this works, there is a inbuild delay by Google, but who is actually affected, there are a lot of different opinions abt it. I wasn't able to verify this myself in LibreWolf, but this could be the case due my intensive hardening I did and this is just a result of what I found in the code and what Mental Outlaw and others shared across social media, if you got different or additional infos abt this feel free to comment and I suggest everyone ti also check the comment section.

DuckDuckGo has two non-javascript versions of their search engine and both of them are very lightweight, especially the lite version.

You can access them via:

Warning to all Brave Browser Users

Blocking variations.brave.com which is used for A/B testing could potentially break Brave's functionalities. For me did Brave's "forgetful browsing" feature broke which seems to be disabled by default if you block this domain.

Little Rat - a browser extension for monitoring other extensions

"Little Rat is an open-source extension designed for network traffic monitoring. Easily view, monitor, and block traffic from other Chrome extensions on a per-extension basis."

I use it myself and I think it's a very useful extension for everyone who uses more than just few extensions for different purposes and don't fully trust them that they send no data as the developer promises, this extension can monitor the network and act as a firewall per-extension basis.

Download (Lite Version | Can't monitor requests, only block): https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/little-rat/oiopkpalpilladnibecobcecijffaflf

Source Code and full version (recommended):
https://github.com/dnakov/little-rat/

(I'm not affliate with the developer in any way and just wanted to share this)

@kuketzblog Hey, ich hab mir mal deine Konfigurationen angeschaut und bin sie durchgegangen, allerdings sind mir einige fragwürdige Einstellungen aufgefallen (die sich auf Sicherheits und Datenschutz beziehen), könnte der Grund dafür sein das diese Einstellungen eher persönliche Preferenzen sind, anstatt welche wo und Sicherheit die erste Stelle einnimmt?

Telegram. One of the good private Messengers. Atleast thats what some people think.. Like I told some people the past Telegram isn't what it looks like, because I do research on things before I use them which I recommend to anyone else to who privacy matters to do this too. Anyway, thanks to NBTV for making this video 👍

I recommend to everyone who use or know people who use it to watch this video, it's rly well made and even I did learn things I didn't knew before 👀

Ecosia, is it really so private?

A article about if Ecosia is really a private search engine.
I did spend a lot a time to analyze and investigate Ecosia, I hope this article helps people to better understand how private is Ecosia really and which are the downsides of it. Is the first article I ever written, so it isn't perfect. I'm open for feedback!
