    Does not make it any less malware bullshit.

    and you do post only personal opinions.
    I posted only facts.
    When Firefox ESR will go EOL so they won't be able to get fixes by backporting them.
    They are forced to use old and unmaintained plugins.

    Very non academic discussion style.
    That's the level of the discussion you set.

    Dark mode is not for the widgets and browser UI.
    Dark mode is a new CSS query so that websites can define how their websites will look under dark mode.
    So you can have a website have black text on white background normally, but when it detects the user is using dark mode, the website is rendered with white text on black background.

    Hi-Angel

    Alright, I was not aware that chrome had a "non-gui" dark mode. I made a mistake. I was not even aware that it was possible to change to a GTK backend... thanks for the heads up folks!

    You know the concept of peer review?

    If that feature gets in an none of the experts objects in the linux kernel community, then it's very likely good.

    Compare to a downstream project like Pale Moon, where they do whatever they want with no review from experts. It's not hard to just keep things "working". You do this all the time in your shitty Amlogic device and kernels by hacking around. Your systems work fine right? Debian + xfce + self-compiled kernel with hacks + random PPAs for updated stuff.

    Is that safe and acceptable for mass distribution? Probably not. When you try to send your changes upstream they reject it because it's a hack.

    Your current kernel is malware. https://lkml.org/lkml/2019/4/25/1121
    My kernel will get that as soon as it is accepted upstream.

    With the same logic, android kernels (older than mainline) are trojan malware, a open door for other malware to infect your system.
    Yes.

    It would be fun to see first attack and malware in my Linux system Not gonna happen in mobile 4G network where the WAN IP changes. The router has a firewall too.
    Malware is unaffected by WAN IP changes
    Malware using your browser to infect the system is not affected by firewalls as the firewall does not stop your browser.

    The log you showed me the last time you claimed this bs was showing DHCP requests ("please give me an IP" requests) from your own PC to the router, and you claimed it was a log of "attacks" from outside.

    It's a fork based on ancient Firefox codebase (both for the GUI and for the rendering engine) with way too little manpower to deal with any security issue, and this is a BIG problem for a web browser which is the first line of defence in the modern world.

    They are at best backporting patches arriving to Firefox ESR codebase, and doing so more slowly than Firefox integrates them in the ESR.
    When there will be no more ESR based on old XUL-based Firefox, they will be 100% on their own.

    By their own admission, most extension developers aren't giving 2 shits about them, so they are forced to either rely on old (potentially unsafe) plugins or make their own (which is not really likley in most cases) https://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic...tralis#p159337

    This makes it a trojan malware, a open door for other malware to infect your system.

    Antivirus scanning is based on file signatures, anything that isn't in the antivirus blacklist database won't be detected. Scanning Windows XP would not yeld any malware either, but it's so garbage unsafe shit that it is trojan malware too, which should never be connected to the Internet again.

    It's still malware. This just means the antivirus does not know it.

    After this news, I took a look at some extension to modify websites to mach the dark theme. This one seems to work very well: https://github.com/darkreader/darkreader

    It is opensource, available in both Firefox and Chrome extension repos and so far only misconfigure colors in a couple places, nothing terrible.
    Also consider Stylus: https://github.com/openstyles/stylus
    Been using it for a while, and I like it. It applies user-created themes that you choose on a per-site basis, and there are usually lots of themes per website (more than just "dark"). This way you can find or make something that suits you for the websites you frequent the most.

    Chrome 74? And still X only?

    I already have Chromium 76 compiled and running under Wayland with Ozone since last week.

    DownThemAll is still the best method for bulk downloading porn galleries. It's the only plugin I'd consider installing Firefox ESR or Pale Moon for since every other plugin I used to use has either been ported over or replaced with something equivalent.
