It's about time we stopped buying into the propaganda phrase "ad blockers", and started calling user-protection tools like #uBlockOrigin and #NoScript what they are; spy blockers. If I display ads on my website using HTML and CSS, spy blockers won't block those. As far as they know, the text, images, audio, or video that make up the ads could be anything. So what's really being blocked is not ads, but tracking. Thanks to the authors of this site, for pointing this out:

Don't.
Use.
#Zoom.
Just.
Don't.

“Free users for sure we don’t want to give that [end-to-end encryption] because we also want to work together with FBI, with local law enforcement in case some people use Zoom for a bad purpose” - Eric Yuan, CEO.

Hey YouTube? When I'm looking at my subscriptions, what the FUCK is sorting by "Most Relevant" supposed to mean? I subscribed to all of these channels, how do you get to decide what's "most relevant" to me? Fuck off and let me watch what I want to see!

This update fixes an issue with the aarch64 version, mostly on Android 9, which caused a crash on launch. Apologies to all who were affected.

Wow…

So electron improved their security features with the recent version 5, but by doing this broke tons of applications because they either need User Namespaces or an SUID executeable (to launch proper isolated subprocesses).

#Signal Desktop noticed this problem and as well and "fixed" it in the worst way possible:

On the other hand #Riot Desktop did a proper fix, which enables an SUID bit on this binary: github.com/vector-im/riot-web/
