Laugh Out Loud @ The boring obsessive Iron Heart reading the pro-Firefox comments and replying back to them going to great lengths and effort in attempting to control the narrative in the discussion, a really obsessed Firefox hater. Pathetic!
People often wonder what did Firefox do to him? He complains about Firefox deplatforming? But he never provides any reference source for his BS claims on who they are actually deplatforming.
Contrast that with all the people Google really deplatformed from youtube, when such people talked about controversial topics. The author of his favorite browser engine (Chromium) is in fact known for deplatforming and known as an ad-tech company, but our dear Iron Heart does not talk about Google deplatforming certain famous youtubers or about how google being an ad-tech company is limiting the capability of ad-blockers on chrome with MV3.
The obsessive anti-firefox commenting from him degenerates the discussions on Ghacks, a commenter like him shouting over others without a voting system in place allows misinformation/FUD about Firefox to be spread.
I believe Iron Hearts comments get a lot of negative feedback here, this is why he has to constantly shout over others, trying to get in the last comment in discussions lol. When he loses the arguments he asks mods for help lol.
He also repeats the same boring BS almost everytime in browser news articles, repeatedly using the same words/sentences such as Deplatformfox, Android (everything is about android with him), deplatforming, Fake news, Shill/Shills, Chromium and Chrome, BAT, Ungoogled Chromium, Bromite, that outdated stupid link he always spammed, repeating that Brave comes preconfigured with sane defaults, AD NAUSEAM.
Chromium based browsers like Brave do not compare to the privacy, complexity and security of a hardened Firefox browser with extensions like UBO.
Some delusional comments from the Firefox hater.
Iron Heart commented > I wouldn’t be surprised if Mozilla drops the webRequest API as well in the slightest. Judging by the comments here so far, the meltdown will then be epic and a sight to behold.
Iron Heart Commented > Cheers to you all, will be watching this topic in the coming months for sure.
Notice his excitement about the possibility of trolling Firefox users. Obsessed and pathetic behaviour from him.
Keep dreaming, wishing, and hoping for such a scenario, you bitter, misinformation spreading, Firefox/FOSS hater. Even if Mozilla did replace webRequest API (No signs they will anytime soon, so looks like you will be waiting a very long time, by wasting your time here spreading BS about Firefox) they would likely have something better in its place that will still make extensions like UBO work as intended.
See article below.
Some words from the Mozilla blog.
Mozilla will maintain support for blocking WebRequest in MV3.
We will continue to work with content blockers and other key consumers of this API to identify current and future alternatives where appropriate. Content blocking is one of the most important use cases for extensions, and we are committed to ensuring that Firefox users have access to the best privacy tools available.
They say they will maintain support for blocking WebRequest in MV3, continue to work with content blockers, and by mentioning future alternatives, it would kind of imply that if they ever decided to remove certain features like “blocking webrequest in Firefox” they would likely have something else in place to allow UBO to be used as intended by gorhill. They likely will not be even thinking of removing “blocking WebRequest” for a very long time, because MV3 is still new.
UBO is a very popular recommended extension on their addon site. If such an extension did not work correctly, they would get a lot of criticism.
UBO works best on Firefox. Not much will change probably, Firefox will have Manifest V3, however, it is very likely that Firefox with MV3 will still allow recommended extensions like UBO to work as Gorhill intended on Firefox for a very long time, whilst probably eventually transitioning to some alternative that can make UBO work with Firefox/MV3, without losing a lot of the featrures UBO had with MV2, or they just keep some of the MV2 features permanently.
As for now, UBO Minus for Chromium-based browsers. Got to like the new name and Gorhills sense of humor. The inferior version of UBO for the inferior “browser engine chromium, an engine authored by google the ad-tech company.
No native ad-blocker on chromium-based browsers can do the things that UBO or NoScript on Firefox can do, which is why Brave apparently said they are going to keep MV2 for now, they likely do not want some of their more intelligent users switching to Firefox if they can not use UBO or NoScript on Brave.
Also, no chromium based browsers as far as i know (I don’t use such browsers) have advanced privacy features such as this option in Firefox or Librewolf settings “privacy.resistFingerprinting.letterboxing”
Chromium based browsers lack the advanced privacy and security features that Firefox has, do not listen to people (Like Iron Heart) who say otherwise as they have not a clue what they are talking about. Brave may be good, but nowhere near as good as Firefox.
Firefox on desktop is amongst the best most private, customizable and secure browser when one takes the time to configure it correctly.
There are no real advantages that the Brave browser would have over Firefox, both privacy or security wise, however, the Brave browser has good defaults for the less tech savvy, but again it is still based on “crappy insecure monopoly chromium engine” designed by ad-tech company Google and now even M$ too involved with the engine because of Edge.
Brave search though looks promising, nice to have more alternative search engines.
As for those people saying Pale Moon is better than Firefox? Just no, at least from a privacy and security perspective, because Pale Moon has none of the advanced features that Firefox got with the Quantum project and having code written in rust like Firefox.
Iron Heart comment > I am one of the few people in this thread looking at FF and Mozilla with a tad bit of realism. I‘ll be here for the mental meltdown when they also drop the webRequest API, should be a massive one judging by the cheerleading done here.
People will be laughing if Brave decides that supporting MV2 will not be feasible due to the constraints of google engineered code in chromium, Lol. If that happens no more UBO SUPERIOR VERSION for browser engine chromium made by an ad-tech company. But don’t worry, you always have the inferior ad-blocker on Brave.
Firefox is just better.
Have fun with this comment Iron Heart, you are pathetic in the way you are trying to control your misleading BS narrative about Firefox on many browser news articles, a lot of people know you have an unhealthy obsession with your hatred of Firefox at this stage and they also know that you spread a lot of misinformation about that browser.
