  1. Pepper Flash will continue to work fine in Chrome...

    Pepper Flash will continue to work fine in Chrome and in Chromium. Ubuntu even has a package for it in their repositories, but they can't ship it in a working state out-of-the-box, it needs to...
  2. NPAPI is only being disabled on Linux for the...

    NPAPI is only being disabled on Linux for the time being, not on OS X and Windows. This is because the NPAPI support on Linux uses GTK2 and they have no interest in adding support to Aura only to rip...
  3. Closed-source does not mean it's entirely opaque....

    Closed-source does not mean it's entirely opaque. More than one person has compared a clean Chromium build with the Chrome binary to identify exactly what it is that they add when building beyond the...
  4. The sad fact is that Flash used to be quite...

    The sad fact is that Flash used to be quite useful, so many sites were written with it. Many people are stuck with Flash to do online banking, university course selection or whatever other stuff it...
  5. Firefox has Google auto-suggestions on by...

    Firefox has Google auto-suggestions on by default. I'm not aware in differences in how it makes use of the Google anti-malware/anti-phishing API, so you elaborate on what you mean?
  6. Chromium is an open-source browser, while Iron is...

    Chromium is an open-source browser, while Iron is a closed source binary blob built from it just like Chrome. In fact, the creator of Iron admits to creating it as a way to earn advertising revenue...
  7. Chromium (and the proprietary Chrome build) is...

    Chromium (and the proprietary Chrome build) is the *only* Linux browser with an up-to-date Flash player. Pretending that Flash is somehow being lost here is misrepresenting what is happening. The...
  8. They're not ignoring the legal issues. The...

    They're not ignoring the legal issues. The package ships a script to download it dynamically, similar to how the Microsoft fonts are handled.
  9. Chrome is just a build of Chromium with a...

    Chrome is just a build of Chromium with a different icon and some code to report the install location if it wasn't downloaded from Google. Chromium has no spying or mandatory data reporting to...

    gnome-shell is a very small part of the stack...

    gnome-shell is a very small part of the stack maintained by the GNOME developers. Mate depends on a lot of GNOME libraries/applications and is moving towards using more of the current stack. It's...
  11. Creating a specific user for this task would be...

    Creating a specific user for this task would be alright, but making use of nobody is bad practice since it's insecure as soon as you use it for more than one thing.
  12. I'm talking about the process running as nobody....

    I'm talking about the process running as nobody. Any other process running as nobody such as a compromised service can ptrace it (or do similar stuff). This is how applications like gdb attach to...

    /dev/random is also a pseudo-random number generator. It's not safe to use the unconditioned entropy because it has varying quality so it's not exposed.

  14. The nobody user is a bit dangerous, since any...

    Unless the user has multiple sessions, like being logged in at another VT. Either way, compromising X is quite trivial and that's why having it still running as root in 2014 is disturbing. It's a...
  15. By marking the input devices as being part of the...

    By marking the input devices as being part of the video group, you allow any user in the video group to read/write to the input devices of other users. On a single user machine, this is still a...
  16. I don't think MSAA has any meaning on a video......

    I don't think MSAA has any meaning on a video... other post-processing anti-aliasing mechanisms would work.
  17. Implementing it would require significantly more...

    Implementing it would require significantly more work, so you're going to need to find someone interested in spending their time on something without much of a use case.
  18. You seem to be asking if there's a way to search...

    You seem to be asking if there's a way to search by other parameters like the date, and yes you can do that. You can AND/OR together any set of search switches including --since and --until, which...
  19. A rolling release still gets you most upgrades...

    A rolling release still gets you most upgrades faster, and you have a slow incremental rate of change to deal with rather than a sudden shift with a trickle of cherry picked upgrades. It's not for...

    gstreamer supports using ffmpeg/libav, so it doesn't really seem worth doing multi-processing wrangling when you can just use a high-level library. I use mpv directly, but if I wanted a player with...
