Great concept but not stable enough for serious use.

Yes, people should not be looking for ways to watch youtube secretly, but support alternative platforms that don't censor and intimidate people?

I know and like it a lot, but what is anonstore? I looked it up but couldn't find anything.

They are pretty solid and I trust them. Their spell checker is a bit poor, but Its pretty good for privacy.

You just seem very passionate about the subject. Almost nobody would take that much time to argue in the favor of a small, relatively unknown VPN. But also you suggest that I'm incorrect when I say VPN's cannot be trusted ultimately. Only someone who was interested in maintaining the "VPN is private" illusion would say that.

Anyway, I don't care if you do work for a VPN or maybe even own your own. But it's gonna be hard to push it in privacy forums cuz there are a lot of people who know better. Well, there are also a lot of people who don't now that I think about it.... ;)

Do you work for Cryptostorm?

Imagine if you could look into the source code of Google or Microsoft or Apple. You'd probably have a heart attack. Everyone is spying.

I am in Southern Europe now and consistently see temperatures reported even by huge companies like accuweather several degrees hotter than it actually is. This may be bigger than a local Swiss thing. I have 2 thermometers with me for checking.

I have nothing invested in proving it one way or another. It is something I saw a few years ago, and thought I'd mention it now to warn others. If you think it went from honeypot to non-honeypot, then by all means use it. At the end of the day, you cannot fully trust any traditional VPN because they can do what ever they want and we'd be none the wiser, despite all the big claims. VPN's are for watching geoblocked movies and stuff like that. That's about it. If you want privacy, you'll have to look into other things.

I think Tor is kind of stuck as it is. To really fix it's issues, a new system needs to be built from scratch. Until then we'll be working with patches and hacks.

It was a big scandal some years ago and I don't have the time to look it up for you. You can take it as you like.

I found both these settings set to False which causes a cpu overload when playing video. Anyone know why?

High cpu usage (

When I play a video from on LibreWolf it uses 2-3x the cpu that Brave does to play the same video. It also turns on the fans in my laptop which signals overburden. My laptop has plenty of power so I"m wondering what the problem is. Have I missed a setting or is this just how LibreWolf works?

When I go to a community page (not signed in) I see thousands of subscribers, but when I access the community from within my account, I am shown dramatically less subscribers. I am a new convert from Reddit and don't understand what is going on.

Another community I wanted to join with 1.5k subscribers and lots of posts, came up as zero subscribers and no posts when I searched for and went when signed in. It showed that it was the correct community page, but nothing there.

Am I on a bad server?

Hi, it's very strange, I found your page with posts and it said 1.5k subscribers, and when I joined I am presented with an empty community (0 subscribers) and no posts. I checked many times that I am in the right place so maybe I did something else wrong?

I'm wondering if it isn't better to just whitelist cookies for the sites I need to log into and not bother with a password manager extension (keepasxc or bitwarden). I try to keep the number of extensions in my browser to a minimum to lower the attack surface. And why involve one more entity in the password story? Are there any problems with using the (1st party) cookies of sites I have signed up to and use to keep me signed in?
