@zlago:matrix.orgsylvieehh is there some documentation i can refer to as to not ask stupid questions about librewolf? specifically i would like to disable the 'light mode preference' anti-fingerpriting measure for a specific website01:18:00
@zlago:matrix.orgsylvieoh i see, using librewolf is implicitly getting light blasted xD01:29:29
@clovius:pancrypticon.netcloviusWhat do you think of an ID-free messenger called simplex chat?01:55:18
@aminda:pikaviestin.fi@aminda:pikaviestin.fiI have been using it for a while, lack of multiple devices makes it a bit cumbersome and backups are a bit advanced subject. Additionally in its current state it discourages selfhosting or using third party servers as if those go down, you need to manually press rotate server for everyone you had a contact with whether directly in private or in a group, although that is in their roadmap05:39:12

@aminda:pikaviestin.fi@aminda:pikaviestin.fiI have more faith on them than I do on Matrix although that doesn't take much05:41:45

@anyone00:matrix.organyone00 I'm starting to feel resistFingerprint causes too much breakage and the recent privacy.fingerprintingProtection is enough 08:57:07

I felt like that too and then I learned that I can just

defaultPref("privacy.resistFingerprinting.testGranularityMask", 4);
defaultPref(
        "privacy.resistFingerprinting.exemptedDomains",
        "jarkkaa.fi,*.element.io,*.google.com,*.pikaviestin.fi,*.envs.net,*.wikimedia.org,*.wikipedia.org,duckduckgo.com,*.duckduckgo.com,*.blesmrt.net,*.piraatit.fi,*.piraattipuolue.fi,*.apple.com,*.op.fi,*.s-pankki.fi,*.revolut.com,*.n26.com,fedoraproject.org,*.fedoraproject.org,music.youtube.com"

@aminda:pikaviestin.fi@aminda:pikaviestin.fi(yes, I leak too much information, but that is publicly in my dotfiles anyway 🤷)09:15:19
@anyone00:matrix.organyone00that's good to know but that make you more unique I guess09:16:51
@anyone00:matrix.organyone00the choice of using fingerprintingProtection probably will make the fingerprint less unique which is what I'm aiming for. while still having basic protection against fingerprinting.09:18:09
@aminda:pikaviestin.fi@aminda:pikaviestin.fiit disables privacy.resistfingerprinting just for those domains and I am unique anyway, because I keep hoarding extensions unintentionally and I have enabled privacybadger learning ability which is yet another fingerprinting method and thus disabled by default09:18:58
@anyone00:matrix.organyone00well we're all more or less unique 😅 but most basic fingerprint printing techniques can be prevented by fingerprintingProtection09:21:27
@anyone00:matrix.organyone00companies like google and cloudflare will always have ways to fingerprint09:22:34
@aminda:pikaviestin.fi@aminda:pikaviestin.fiIs fingerprintingProtection the integrated list of fingerprinters so likely also included by µBlock Origin (that I disable) and Privacy Badger?09:22:34
@anyone00:matrix.organyone00they control most of the web and I'm sure they have ways to track users in lower levels09:23:19
