borde kanske skrivit detta innan jag flyttade över, men jag ville bara tacka @Linuxkompis och alla medlemmar på den för tiden som varit på instansen 👌
I learned yesterday thanks to the good folks at #qutebrowser on Freenode that private mode blocks access to any cookies and data stored in the regular session. I have always thought that it only prevented new data from being saved. :|
I've been using Firefox as a secondary web browser for years for websites that I don't want to access my data and for them to store new data..
I feel so stupid right now, but I'm also happy that I can finally use qutebrowser for everything!

Also, can we make a point of always calling it Microsoft #GitHub from now on please? Thanks.
Our statement on the youtube-dl DMCA Takedown is online:
While not a requirement – for me –, it's nice knowing that the backing organization is one dedicated to open-source and one you can individually get involved in and help with.
Especially with recent events, this was long overdue for me to do.
For the past year I've been doing independent software research, funded by an Open Tech Fund grant. This summer the Trump administration de-funded the OTF, cutting off my income.
I've been living off my savings since then, and while I'm looking for alternative funding sources, applying and getting that money will take time and so in the meantime, if you can, please support my work via GitHub sponsors: https://github.com/sponsors/spacekookie, or Liberapay: https://liberapay.com/spacekookie/.
Thanks! Boosts appreciated.
@arh @ashimokawa @shom @af If we get "asked" by official German authority, a court, we of course have to adhere to the order. However, this is not happening just by some letter from some individual or corporation.
This is the difference to the US DMCA takedown process, where any individual or company can issue a takedown request with immediate effect, and then the burden of proof is on the side of the project.
So I wonder how #Debian will handle this - are they going to include this software in future releases?
youtube-dl has received a DMCA takedown from the RIAA:
KeepassXC 2.6.2 Released with 'Always on Top' option
"We moved to GitHub because everyone's already there"
"We shut down the mailing lists because most of our users prefer to use GitLab in their web browser"
"We're rewriting in Rust because we don't really have any non-x86_64 users"
"We're leaving IRC because Discord is more user-friendly"
What all of these arguments have in common is that they exclude people, centralize infrastructure, and eschew free software for proprietary solutions, all in the name of some ill-defined measure of "progress".
