The Brave Browser Will Pay You to Surf the Web | WIRED
IF YOU WERE on the internet in the late 1990s, you might remember companies like AllAdvantage that promised to pay you to surf the web. You could install a program that tracked your browsing and showed you targeted ads at the top of the screen; then AllAdvantage would give you a cut of the ad revenue you generated.#technology #internet #web #browser #brave #advertising

A lightweight approach to removing Google web service dependency
ungoogled-chromium is Google Chromium, sans dependency on Google web services. It also features some tweaks to enhance privacy, control, and transparency (almost all of which require manual activation or enabling).
ungoogled-chromium retains the default Chromium experience as closely as possible. Unlike other Chromium forks that have their own visions of a web browser, ungoogled-chromium is essentially a drop-in replacement for Chromium.
ungoogled-chromium is available in several software repositories:
Arch Linux: Available in AUR as ungoogled-chromium
NOTE: ungoogled-chromium-bin is not officially part of ungoogled-chromium. Please submit all issues to the maintainer of the PKGBUILD.
Gentoo Linux: ::chaoslab overlay maintains an unofficial ungoogled-chromium ebuild.
GNU Guix: Available as ungoogled-chromium.
macOS cask: Available as eloston-chromium

Sehr nützlich um den #HTML #Farbcode einer Farbe von einer Seite herauszufinden
Das das #Smilies Einfügen in #Friendica noch nicht optimal gelöst ist benutze ich dieses Addon um mit zwei Klicks Smillies in einem Textfeld einzufügen.
In Verbindung mit meiner Nextcloud Instanz ist das eine Wunderbare Möglichkeit meine #Lesezeichen über mehrere #Rechner zu Synchronisieren und die #Daten in der eigenen Hand zu behalten.
Da in #Vivaldi anders als in #Google #Chrome es keine Möglichkeit gibt mit einem Rechtsklick eine #Website zu übersetzen habe ich mir mit diesem nützlichen Addon ausgeholfen. In dem man den Text markiert kann man sich mit nur einem Klick sich die #Übersetzung auf der gleichen Seite als #Popup anzeigen lassen oder man öffnet mit einem Rechtsklick die Google Übersetzer Seite in einem neuen Tab in dem der vorhin markierte Text schon bereits eingefügt ist.
Eine für mich sehr wichtige #Erweiterung die es mir ermöglicht, in Verbindung mit meiner #Nextcloud Instanz, meine #Passwörter in der eigenen Hand zu behalten.
Screencastify – Screen Video Recorder
Mit #Screencastify kann man beliebige #Browserfenster und sogar den eigenen #Desktop aufnehmen. Das besondere aber an diesem #Addon ist das man die Videos hinterher weiter bearbeiten kann. Man kann die #Videos zuschneiden und sogar nur Ausschnitte der gesamten Aufnahme ausschneiden.
Und natürlich uBlock Origin. Dieser #Addblocker ist ein muss für jeden #Browser, man hat die Möglichkeit sogar selbst zu bestimmen welche Teile einer Website blockiert werden. uBlock wurde 2018 von einem Unternehmen übernommen also achten sie dadrauf #uBlock #Origin, die vom „Raymond Hill (gorhill)“ den ursprünglichen Entwickler, zu nehmen.

How to enable Reading View in Microsoft Edge Insider | OnMSFT.com
Microsoft’s current Insider build of its upcoming Chromium-powered Edge release has a number of missing features compared to the existing EdgeHTML browser. One such absentee is the fairly popular Reading View, which makes it easier to read webpages by cutting down the clutter.#computing #web #browser #Microsoft #Edge
Reading View is actually already present in Edge Insider. It’s hidden behind an experimental flag, so you need to enable it manually before use.

Chrome Update Syncs Browser to Windows Dark Mode | MakeTechEasier
Many people enjoy using dark mode options in software to save their eyes from strain. Unfortunately, even if you tell Windows 10 to use dark mode, this doesn’t “transfer over” to other software.

Iʼm sorry but weʼre not supporting an open source solution like this
After 4 months of waiting, that is the response I got from Widevine, Google’s DRM for web browsers. For the last 2 years I’ve been working on a web browser that now cannot be completed because Google, the creators of the open source browser Chrome, won’t allow DRM in an open source project.
The browser I’m building, called Metastream, is an Electron-based (Chromium derived), MIT-licensed browser hosted on GitHub. Its main feature is the ability to playback videos on the web, synchronized with other peers. Each client runs its own instance of the Metastream browser and transmits playback information to keep them in sync.
If someone is creating a browser that wants to playback media, they’ll soon discover the requirement of DRM for larger web media services such as Netflix and Hulu. There are a few DRM providers for the web including Widevine, PlayReady, and FairPlay.
As far as I’m aware, Widevine is the only available DRM for a Chromium-based browser, especially so for Electron. Chromium accounts for roughly 70% market share of all web browsers, soon to include Microsoft’s upcoming Edge browser rewrite. Waiting 4 months for a minimal response from a vendor with such a large percentage of the market is unacceptable.
This isn’t something I’m alone in either, several Electron users have waited months for a response. More prominently, the creators of Brave Browser also had issues waiting for replies from Google Widevine.
“This is a prime example for why free as in beer is not enough. Small share browsers are at the mercy of Google, and Google is stalling us for no communicated-to-us reason.” - Brian Bondy, Co-founder & CTO of Brave
I’m now only left with two options regarding the fate of Metastream: stop development of a desktop browser version, or pivot my project to a browser extension with reduced features. The latter requiring publishing to the Google Chrome Web Store which would further entrench the project into a Google walled garden.
If you know of any way to help out, please get in touch.
See post on Hacker News for discussion thread.

Google users can sign into Firefox and Edge with a security key
Until now, you've had to use Chrome to sign into your Google account with a security key. You won't have to be quite so choosy going forward, though. Google has transitioned to using the new Web Authentication standard for hardware-based sign-ins, making your key useful in Firefox, Edge and other browsers that rely on the format.#technology #web #signon #security #browser #chrome #firefox #edge
