Also in about 2014 I switched from Thunderbird to mutt because I wanted something simple which does GPG, hard time to switch but I love it. And now it seems like Mozilla is killing Firefox for years :</p> +<ul> + <li>Version numbering doesn’t mean anything(patches, big change, small change, security update ?)</li> + <li>Have a very bad privacy and security (look at the differences between tor browser and Firefox)</li> + <li>No more choice for the user<ul> + <li>Old one : JavaScript can’t be configured</li> + <li>OpenH264(non-free) is installed by default</li> + <li>Pocket(non-free service) is installed, displayed, non-configurable at compile time</li> + <li>Firefox Hello is installed, displayed, non-configurable at compile time</li> + <li>Other New web stuff(WebRTC, HTML5 audio/video, …) have to be disabled/configured into about:config which is a total mess with no help</li> + <li>add-ons have to be signed and only by Mozilla, non-configurable at compile time</li> + <li>tracks you even if you disable all tracking in about:preferences</li> + <li>Geo location can only be totally disabled only with about:config</li> + </ul></li> + <li>more and more slowness and crashes and <strong>new profile doesn’t help</strong></li> +</ul> +<p>Quick and Dirty solution while I make my own browser while keeping a good privacy : Tor Browser(which use ESR) with add-ons for more privacy/security</p> +<p>BTW if <strong>everyone</strong> have to use a LTS/ESR/real-stable version of a browser even if they are actual developers… well why is the Developer Edition based on Nightly ? For badly supported things like H.264 ? I got gstreamer for that. For brand new stuff ? Well most web-smiths have to support old browsers like IE6 or IE7. For marketing because we are the browser with tons of features ? Well I think so. I think Netscape did the same mistake, why Mozilla would do the same ?</p> diff --git a/articles/Mozilla is Broken.shtml b/articles/Mozilla is Broken.shtml @@ -0,0 +1,16 @@ +<!DOCTYPE html> +<html lang="fr"> + <head> +<!--#include file="/templates/head.shtml" --> + <title>Mozilla is Broken — Cyber-habitat de lanodan</title> + <link type="application/rss+xml" href="/rss" title="flux RSS" rel="alternate"></link> + </head> + <body> +<!--#include file="/templates/fr/nav.shtml" --> + <article> +<!--#include file="/articles/Mozilla is Broken.html"--> + </article> + <a href="/articles/Mozilla%20is%20Broken.html">article only(plain HTML)</a> +<!--#include file="/templates/fr/footer.html" --> + </body> +</html> diff --git a/browser-setup.shtml b/browser-setup.shtml @@ -6,30 +6,30 @@ </head> <body> <!--#include file="templates/en/nav.shtml" --> - <p>Here is how I’ve setup my Firefox(I’d prefer a browser which already have thoses fonctionalities, specialy privacy).
