The best possible outcome is this ends in an extreme train wreck and Intel remove ME/vPro on desktop chips.

Less ideal is after said train wreck people create tools to easily disable this shit.

Worst case, it's only a partial train wreck and Intel dismiss the whole thing with marketing and PR bull shit about increasing security so it doesn't happen again and the majority go back to sucking Intel dick.

Normies will never even hear about this, and the few that do will not care. Normies do not even use Intel hardware anymore, except at work. They use ARM processors on their smartphones and tablets. Those that do use laptops use Apple, and will be convinced that they are immune to this problem.

<teehee, I use Mac, not Intel, silly. It's SO SECURE! Way better than that Windows or Intel or whatever you're talking about. OMG did you see that article on Black Lives Matter from HuffPo?! I mean, I didn't read it on HuffPo, just in my Facebook feed. OMG!!!!!!! [ten emojis follow]

I'll concede I skipped over much of it because I assumed he was retarded. It still holds true you can spoof your resolution without compromising tor features and disabling redirect. A better use of all of our times would be to parse the JS for redirect arguments and work from there.

Nah, it was a less than 50 word post. You didn't skip anything, you're just too stupid to understand what was being said.

So it turns out that you're the retard. Ironic. It's like that movie Inception, but with retardation. Tardception.

With W3C now folding to DRM and the web already being crushed under the weight of JS I think we need a discussion.

What are some alternatives to the web? I remember GNUNET implements something like websites. Basically I think we should ditch web browsers all together. BBS? Gopher?

Your metaphor could be better defined but message received. To try and use your metaphor: The "cars" can only drive on the roads. I'm saying we become "cyclists" and get off the roads.

That said, the idea that we can keep our own little corner of the web clean, safe and free browser compliant (which I assume you are saying) is naive. For reasons stated here >>11213 the web and because of that in part the internet is now compromised as a safe platform. Even non web applications like IRC rely on domain name servers and the web to communicate the address to users. If the web does become hostile we can only hope it's at such a slow transition that we can easily adapt. Alternatively we can start discussing technologies now.

Now you're purposely being ignorant of both human behavior and progression. The cyclists expression here is using cURL or ed browser to "display" a httpd "site". I'm sure even /g/ wants to be able to at the least display video and sound, no? By aeroplanes, I mean better clients like seamonkey and flexget.

Banks, websites, governments, etc. could have been requiring DRM for years in order to access and interact with their content. Flash and Silverlight make DRM possible. EME has been implemented in various browsers for years, and in all major browsers since 2016. Every single site on the web could have required users to use DRM to access their content for years now.

Yet they haven't, and have no reason to do so for most content. Again, you do not understand what DRM is, apparently.

Were you freaking out about your bank potentially requiring DRM 7 years ago, even though they could have done so at any time? No. Because you have no fucking idea what you're talking about.

You're freaking out about it now, because you read about the W3C recommendation a couple days ago on reddit and now, all of a sudden, you think the sky's falling.

So why don't you, like fucking everyone since the night of times, purpose a paid subscription?
You know what internet is like? A free to play. First to make it extremly accessible, while taking money from the customer who don't even know they's one. It's a shit economical system, based on ignorance.
People still think that google, facebook is free. Just ask anyone how they win billions and are at the top of tech industry, most people will not even be able to answer (or something vague like "ads?").

We need to stop with this. "If it's free, then you're the product."
All I see is that a lot of people actually started their blog for fun, to share with people, then they discovered that they could make a shit tone of money on it, so greed came on, and they try to only live on that. That's not how reality works. You can't live only on your shit little blog, or on a little youtube video. Just look at how newspaper use to work in the past. It's the same thing. It's not because I share some good inside with peoples that I'm gonna create an entire newpaper on this idea, and only live on that.
I need something serious. A team of writers, a shit tone of work, talent. Not just random internet luck of fame.

That's the root of the problem. Too easy for random people to get too much money. Just look who're at the top of youtube, or other medias. That's ridiculous. It's certainly, certainly not a meritocracy. Even the top youtuber agree with that, that they're were they are with only luck, and that people with less success have more talent than them.
Thanks retarded internet economical model.

I don't think it's an internet issue, I think it's an human issues. Nikola Tesla, Kurt Godel and many others, died poor and fucked, for example, before the internet existed. The people that really constructed computing, like Konrad Zuze, never appear on mainstream, just the fancy Steve Jobs that did nothing of good.
It's how our primitive thinking always end up with the same patterns. People don't like to extend their thoughts, therefore, shit content will be produced to keep the circus running.
People like to think how things "might look like" and not how it really is, therefore they numb themselves with myths.

Internet is a human construct, so it's pretty normal that it was designed with ideology in mind. That's why it's the support of the worste surveillance technology ever. That's why it's so hard to access privacy, because it was made to be public in the first place.

Anyone else excited about the coming full realisation of the GNU OS? Soon GuixSD will ship with Hurd and the original GNU vision will be a usable system.

After that all they need is all the software using GNU licenses and RMS can die fulfilled. If they then rewrite everything in scheme RMS will become a saint in heaven.

It's a problem of economical model, and government that push for free market, but without doing its job to eliminate monopolies.
You should actually get back in time, and understand that everything was sold with the "source code". You washer was sold with the manual describing everything about it, every pieces used with reference to allow you to repare you machine.
Today, everything is made breakable, and the most complicated to not allow you to do any repair, any modification.
Even though software is a special case, because you NEED the source code if you want any security, but you don't want to easely give out your source code to every one, it pretty much followed the same path. Basically, anything closed source is backdoored from my point of view. I'm not even talking about the official stuff, like microsoft who gently tell you that it tapes everything. Or apple that trace everyone's move.

A mechanical system can't be close source, because you still can "easely" reverse engineer the process by simply opening your car, if you know what you're doing.

So no, it's not that black and white. If you have a bullshit job, it's the problem of an economical model based only on an all mighty market, and not a market serving the actual people.
Free market without regulation create this kind of none sense, because the goal of any companies if not to serve any general interest, but egoist profit.

You're not the only one who have a partly immoral job, it's pretty much general. So please, don't say that we need close source because you need a job. That's in no where a justification. A lot of industries had to close their door, letting the workers without any job because of technological progress.

That's not the problem with links2. CSS is cancer.
The problems with links2 is that it has not preventive security measures by default, such as privsep, sandbox, etc.
It also could adhoc with youtube-dl and an external player, so we could directly play media.
Another problem is keybinding. There's none.

If someone address that problems in links2 (and clean the messy code, obviously), that would be a fantastic browser.
I had this project myself (although I would reconstruct it in a dependent-type language or Lambda-Prolog), but I'm too immature to do it (yet).
