|00:39:34||c0ld_0ne||I'm going to have to give that a try. Invisible encryption kinda makes me nervous though. That's what I like about gpg, even though it's a PITA.|
|00:39:32||m6vw4pu8q||I think there is a 100mb limit.|
|00:40:59||c0ld_0ne||I tried the desktop app, seemed kind of bloaty.|
In reply to @c0ld_0ne:matrix.org It requires a mobile phone number. Make sure you enable "Registration Lock" and you "Verify" their "Saftey Number"

|00:41:24||m6vw4pu8q||It kinda chugs when you first start it up.|
In reply to @c0ld_0ne:matrix.org It's a crappy unsandbox web browser (electron)
I tried the desktop app, seemed kind of bloaty.
|00:42:40||c0ld_0ne||I seem to remember it being 90 MB or something.|
|00:43:55||m6vw4pu8q||You want 5mb files. Signal can do that.|
|00:44:13||c0ld_0ne||If I knew more than 2 ppl that used Signal, I would have probably kept it.|
|00:44:38||c0ld_0ne||I mean the app was 90mb|
|00:47:11||distoresite||I'm not sure what your use case is. Signal is less of a foot-gun when chatting with boneheads. I prefer GPG though.|
|00:47:50||m6vw4pu8q|| "Foot-gun?" |
|00:49:10||c0ld_0ne||I want to try MX Linux but I don't. Somebody talk me into/out of it.|
|00:59:08||c0ld_0ne||Not everybody at once...|

In reply to @m6vw4pu8q:privacytools.io You can argue that a false sense of security is worse than nothing
|01:15:23||김민지||Especially for people that are really relying on it|
In reply to @michelle:privacytools.io WASM encryption is an option. I don't think these email providers use it though
|01:23:58||김민지||WASM is really cool. Especially when not in a web context (despite having _web_ in the name, it can be run within any host, the browser being one such host)
In theory WASM (with WASI) offers strong sandboxing for programs. A program gets given access to some subset of the platform's syscalls and can't use anything it hasn't been given access to. Also in theory, it can enable programs to be written in any language and run under a single runtime (and even enables sharing libraries between languages)
I'd love to see a WASM OS where most/all user programs are WASM apps|
In reply to @michelle:privacytools.io I find that having to use tor all the time when browsing is not practical. That's what keeps me with a regular os.
Whonix is practical though, if you use VMs.
|03:30:26||Bravo6||i think the web sucks tho|
|03:30:31||Bravo6||like, not sucks suck|
|03:30:56||Bravo6||but web apps i think are one of the worst things to happen to software development|
