>Mozilla has announced that it would like to collect anonymous user data in order to “better understand how people use” Firefox. The proposed move is quite contentious for many users because Mozilla is making it opt-out; many users feel betrayed by the move given that Mozilla touts Firefox as a privacy-oriented browser.
>Mozilla says that this sort of data collection is necessary in order to make Firefox perform better. The browser-maker wants to find the answers to the following questions “Which top sites are users visiting?”, “Which sites using Flash does a user encounter?”, and “Which sites does a user see heavy Jank on?” By using differential privacy Mozilla claims that it won’t be able to make conclusions about individual users thus preserving their privacy.
>If Mozilla follows through on their plan to implement this telemetry, which it likely will, those bothered for their privacy will have the extra task of heading into the preferences menu and disabling the data collection.

>in-depth comparison of VPS hosts
I am thinking of getting a used/refurbished laptop for about <£300, its soul purpose will be learning web dev, image editing and stuff like that, no gaming.
I am learning Webdev for employment, so should I be looking at getting an apple OS laptop, something I have no experience in currently, or get a windows one and put Linux on it?
1. Phone app/ ARG (react native)
2. Online store for a design studio (wp/ woo)
3. Online store for a fashion designer (wp/ woo)
4. After Effects plugin (c++/ aesdk)
5. A few open-source front-end libraries (js)
The phone app
Maybe the AE plugin if I get time
would it be usable for any kind of development? web, game dev, would you be able to get work done on it?
Since when is game dev work. Also no you cannot effectively produce new code on something like this. Sure to make some edits here and there its fine. But especially programming requires alot of debugging and multitasking which would be a pain on a device this small, this is why alot of programmers have two monitors.
For word its fine tho.

How many Linux fanboys actually use Linux as their primary OS?
My go-to OS. Wiped windows 7 off a laptop to install ubuntu. I run DNS, DHCP, NFS, and apache at home all using linux. Just installed the android SDK to give it a spin. Did you fall for the mac meme or something?
We are making a web browser!
In the face of recent changes in Firefox and Chrome some anons were asking for a /g/'s perfect web browser, we collected the most wanted here and plan on continuing with the creation.
To contribute follow the WORK PLAN, join the IRC to ask developers for a repo, and get to programming!

- Set bug tracker and mailing list in Savannah.
1. Browse links2 source code (you can use Ctags for tagging functions and files).
2. Expose API and give access to everything (scripting through executables is planned).
3. Give total control over the DOM, put options in files inside a hierarchical folder structure referencing sites and subsites.
4. Implement a link grabber for every link and media type to be parsed by scripts and independent applications.
5. Create an uncomplicated switch to general security profiles located in saved files.
6. Implement ncurses simple tree style graphics for bookmarks, tabs, advanced security policies by site, etc.
7. Work in the framebuffer graphics rendering.
9. Cache, logs, cookies, and other data storage options.
10. Ports routing proxy management.
11. Vim/Emacs modes, dwb hints and quickmarks.
12. Optionally add parser for HTML, DJVU, PDF, epub, etc.?

So I've been doing research on my new computer I'm building and I've come to a stump. I keep running into mixed news and articles and can no longer make up my own mind. Is the i5-7600k going to be a good processor for casual gaming and streaming as compared to the 100$ difference of having an i7-7700k?
All of the websites say that the only need for an i7-7700k would be for video/photo editing and maybe complex games that can take advantage of the multi-thread that the i7 has where as the i5 is better for a budget.
>> Decide what CPU I get to put in my computer.
Also if you have opinions on graphics cards, I'd love to hear them. I'm currently looking at GTX 1080.
1080 for gaming if that's your budget is a good choice unless you can find a vega64 at MSRP and undervolt it, for CPUs though especially for streaming you should be looking at the 1600/X 1700/x

most of the people you're speaking of use a 4chan app to post at home via wifi. I mean that's fine but doesn't do what 99.9% of smartphone owners need. iMessage alone is a huge dealbreaker.
Let's imagine I discovered an exploit involving escalation privileges on bash for windows that allows me to acces the entire host drive and perform any operation. Wich would be the way to report this (getting paid) without exposing myself? Would the Linux community benefitiate in any way (more Wine compatibility, idk).
Results only show Ms bullshit and an email address. If I use temporary mail I don't think they will answer me. And even if they answered I don't feel safe sending an email with my BC address.
