The internet is just bloat now
>4KDios mio, las abominacions
>>70971916Yooo what the fuck? Were you too long in YouTube or what?
>>70972734Yeah, watching an hour and a half livestream.
>>70972788I once hit 10k editing a google doc with a bunch of coworkers for a couple hours.
>>70971916Whenever I have to use modern internet I feel like I'm slowly getting cancer. Ads bigger than sites themselves, auto-playing videos in the background, pop-ups every 2 seconds. These days you need a decent machine to browse internet! Only browse! I found my old Core 2 Duo laptop recently, shit was unusable in the most sites.
>>70973294I was a strong advocate for not using adblockers until one website plastered so many ads on it, it slowed my entire computer to a crawl. This was a fairly powerful gaming PC as well; not some slouch laptop. Needless to say I never browse without an adblocker now.
uMatrix is now a required tool for browsing the internet. Open it up pretty much anywhere and you see like 20 domains pulling in tracking cookies, images, js files doing god knows what, and so on.
>>70973294key is to block it before it bloats your system. I like using Waterfox with uBlock Origin & NoScript combo. For my older android phone I just use Brave. You have to block so many things now because 1 website could be pulling from up to 20 other websites for ad and web tracking purposes.
>>70971916it's so sad man. hardware improvement had to come but it came too soon.
>>70971916My uBlock usually doesn't have to do too much because I don't allow a bunch of JS like a retard.
>>70971916Everything to do with the modern internet is bloat, the web browsers and websites both, it's all junk and you should avoid using them at all costs
>>70973294>account needed on most sites => need email>email account is 99.99999% spam>can't log into gmail and other things even with correct password on wrong machine>https://takeout.google.com/settings/takeout>sites force political correctness>sites try to shill you garbage to buy>"content creators">Hit follow and SMASH DAT like button>*asks for phone number*>user specific controlled internet experiece ( aka echo chamber aka thought bubble) via cancer search algos/user profiling>bulletin dead>only usable via bloat browser>blogs, so many fucking blogs>politics tries to "reform" internetTime to go out
whast need seriously is making a new ocmputer networks for yourselves to post on we need this dnssoon but mke from ground up better and rtule out all mistaks from old source
>>70971916A strict security browser needs to be made that loads only from primary domain. Anything 3rd party gets blocked automatically.
>>70973984>Time to go outI went /out/ yesterday, was comf.Sat on the ground for like an hour just enjoying the atmosphere.
>>70974335That'll just end up with all ads, tracking, etc. being proxied through the website's server (read: CloudFlare) and being even harder to block.
>>70973294still using my C2D craptop and SII gookphone to browse, its perfectly functional.my real complaints arent ads, which i block entirely, but site designs leaning to vox/medium styles where there is a narrow column of GIANT fucking text to appeal to retards with HD phones and screens.
The internet issue happens with everyone as we have all faced the network issue while doing the work online. I once have faced issue in connecting the wireless printer through wifi and have to ask https://errorcode0x.com/fix-epson-printer-error-code-e-01/ to fix the issue.
>>70973238>google docsHeh, when I was in grad school people would get pissed at me for not working on shit "together" remotely via google docs. Eventually I caved and just got a SBC and set up a filter on it, which culled a lot of it, but after a bit that number would creep up into the tens of thousands.
>>70973578is uMatrix better than uBlock Origin?
>>70971916Twitch.tv is for manchilds.
>Using both uMatrix and PrivacyBadgerWhy would you need the abortion that is badger when uMatrix does everything better and blocks by default?
>>70975188Because heuristic-based add-ons like Privacy Badger are the future.https://www.theregister.co.uk/2017/12/20/ghostery_ublock_lead_the_antitrack_pack/
>>70971916The highest I've seen it is >38k. The audacity and mental retardation required for companies to get pissy about blocking ads is astounding.I don't give a fuck what some meddlesome old ratbag in a suit thinks, it's my computer and internet connection, I have final say on what goes through it. Wankers.
>>70974931What the fuck is SBC? A browser?
>>70975716Single board computer. You can use them for more than just playing video games, anon. Pretty handy little things for dedicated tasks around the house.
>>70973984tor and hidden services are the future of the free internet. the surface level web has been completely seized by corporate culture and platitudinous political bullshit
>>70975782Like a Raspberry Pi or an Arduino?
>>70975828Problem with using such services is that they are already being monitored by ISPs, your data will just be sold in another method. >>70975842Raspberry piece of shit, yup.
>>70975871>Tor is monitored by my ISPEnjoy the encrypted traffic
>>70975871I've always wanted to start getting into custom Arduino projects. One day, anon. One day I will.
>>70973294>autoplay videosI hope the faggot who thought this was a good idea rots in hell
>>70975119They are meant to be used simultaneously.
>>70975957Heh, weren't around for all the midi usage back in the 90s? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i3dB0qEcG20>trying to be sneaky late at night on dial up internet>pray parents don't hear the KEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSH STRONKKKKKKKK>load up hentai shrine>fucking midis blare through the speakers
>>70976026kinda your own fault for not turning off the speakers
>>70976059When you're 12 and trying to jerk off you're too hyper vigilant for such acts of common sense.>go back home with high school sweetheart who followed you to college on Christmas break>sleep in the same bed>joke about when we were teenagers and had to sneak around to fuckSomething is lost with this laissez-faire attitude towards such things these days. Stunts development, I think.
>>70975599>heuristic-based add-ons are the future.Why?On one hand we have uMatrix, which actually blocks any 3-rd party scripts by default, essentially protecting your system and allowing you to whitelist what you think is necessary.On the other hand there is PB, that allows everyone to rape your system and then MAYBE will decide to (partially) block some of them when they are done anyway.I can see only normies using it, since it doesn't break any web pages.
