    Unfortunately I cannot stand Gnome 3, but hopefully one day KDE developers will implement something like this.

    While the webcam can be taped for the best security, the mike will still be able to record.

    I just with that in all these 20 years or so these big desktop environments like Gnome and KDE woul've make these basic privacy and security controls for both webcam and mike.

    But yeah, they had more important things to do like changing the wallpapers, icons and colors every year.

    This is a non desirable situation, because an extension runs in the same main loop than the whole desktop itself, which means that a complex extension can need to do too much work inside the main loop, and freeze the whole desktop for too much time.
    maybe it's time to stop running javascript extensions in main loop?

    Alexmitter True. Now let’s see what the extensions devs can make of this..
    Well, I can say you that as soon as Gnome Shell 3.38 is out, a new version of DING will be out using this patch. And probably a new version of Terminus the terminal (but the GTK one, not the electron one), for the "guake drop-down" mode.

    Wayland is just a protocol that doesn't work. So we are slave to nothing. And compositors are also nothing. Why have I to be forced to use a compositor under wayland if I don't want to? Wayland is more that a protocol, it reduces our choises.
    It works much better, so go whining somewhere else. Why are you 'forcing' us to read such crap?

    This is an entirely unrelated concern, it seems to me.

    For the same reason you're "forced" to use an X server under X11 or "forced" to have an engine in your car. You need something which sits between the video drivers and the applications to share one resource between multiple applications and your car needs something to convert fuel or battery power into motion.

    It was called an X "server" because, originally, X was always network transparent. Now that network remoting is optional in Wayland implementations, they're named after the one thing they all have in common, they have to generate a desktop pixmap from one or more window pixmaps... the technical term for that process is "compositing" because you're making a "composite image".
