becomes unnecessarily energy-intensive the rest of the day

you can close the website anytime you want, and set the battery optimisation for the browser exactly as any other apps.


The US government benefits from having facebook services as surveillance front all over the world. It’s obvious the sabre rattling was just for show and they aren’t going to poke into that relationship.


self hosting is the only way you can guarantee speed. Public instances serve many people. There’s only so much they can handle.


Apple: It is an “ad/invasion of privacy” when it is from other companies, however it is an innovative, first of its kind “discovery tool” when it is from our company.

Apple users: <standing ovation>


Sort of. Chrome and Edge are based on same (chromium) codebase with additional features on top


Never take fanboy’s opinions and this guy makes it pretty obvious. Never even mentioned Firefox.

Safari doesn’t even run on Windows and Linux. If a company controlled every aspect of hardware and software, of course it will run faster. It’s 2022, isn’t technology supposed to be portable? I would take some trade off on speed for superior portability, adblock, privacy and customization over a browser that doesn’t even bother being cross platform.

this is, however, good content for sheeples


I read somewhere that if the article title ends with a question mark, the answer is most a NO and usually is clickbait.

meh, that intro of a celebrity tuning off of internet was as far as I got. They literally have a swarm of assistants doing everything for them. what’s the big deal with that? And celebrities lie, that’s their whole schtick trying to be “unique” without any need for proof.

When i go out I don’t turn on data or wi-fi. it’s just there for calls, location, or a map (an offline one at that). You know things that are vital for everyday travel?

Can you get that level of sophistication without a smartphone? This is just cringe.


Zuckerberg should just stick to stealing other people’s ideas or outright buying their competitors. He’s obviously out of touch with reality. Anyone remember facebook phone, their shitcoin, graph search, facebook email?


Performance optimizations are always welcome.



if you can code, it could be as easy as having a python fastAPI script with list of search engines urls, which takes a query, picks a search engine at random and concatenate it with the query and then redirect there.

then you host it on heroku or replit, then change the search engine to one you just made.


Did you know that the search engines on Firefox are sponsored too? Even if you don’t use those specific search engines, it supports firefox development. Without them firefox would be dead. It’s not like they’re selling your personal data.

Anyway there must be a way to disable it. did you search?



doesn’t Arch already have a setup script now? I’ve also seen multiple helper scripts for Arch. Manjaro has had a lot of mishaps in the past, it may not be completely safe .


on the bright side, it got him outside of his house…



I generally try it with snapdrop first but if for some reason it isn’t working, I use one of the firefox send instance.

there’s also file.pizza which I never got working.


I think lots of open source software is created for exposure, to make more connections, get more contributions, probably job offers before burnout sets in. Unless someone is really principled about FOSS and has enough funding, they’ll not go out of the way to make themselves harder to be found.


Facebook paid GOP firm to malign TikTok
Anyone else felt like those inflammatory posts against tiktok weren't natural? Turns out it was true.

Asking if other lemmy.ml users are facing similar issues? it seems domains registered on freenom (.ml/.tk) are not being resolved with Google DNS. It works fine on other DNS (Cloudflare/Quad9/etc) NSLOOKUP results: ![](https://lemmy.ml/pictrs/image/ac4d1ed3-cbe8-4e5f-b31d-b10d0d118e0d.png)
