      Is it time to start using FTP, though? 🤔

        Nope.

        It is time to start using SFTP though.

          Time for IT to get off their asses and switch to HTTP(S) or SFTP.

            Google finally deprecating fingerprinting now that every website simply screams at you with a popup to log in using Google, so it's now redundant.

                  Firefox is *so* much better than Chrome and no benchmark can tell me otherwise. Especially this latest Firefox with the revamped UI.

                  This isn't your Firefox from yesteryear, this is the real deal. Give it a try, you will *never* go back to Chrome, unless it's for like a quick one-off for something (I suggset having a quick, untouched Chrome separate from Firefox just to have that lightweight browser available).

                    While it might be good that they reduce the User-Agent string in order to reduce fingerprinting, I think it has little real impact since there is a myriad of other ways to fingerprint (fonts, canvas, cache, etc).

                    As for FTP, it is nice to see it go away, it is a really terrible protocol, and it is very rarely used, and there are good dedicated clients for it such as FileZilla.
