For your convenience - here's the podcast (some of which I heartily agree with especially about not trusting mega corps listening in on your house, other bits of which I think are tosh, like trusting software that's produced by megacorps over stuff that's produced by communities): https://www.rnz.co.nz/national/programmes/ninetonoon/audio/2018712950/is-your-device-always-listening-in
@lightweight From his security advice, it definitely strikes that browsers are too complicated.
We shouldn't need an organization as large as Mozilla to maintain a free software browser (much as I appreciate their efforts), and it's a failing on our part that we have to advise people to be careful about clicking links.
@alcinnz Browsers are the "everything + the kitchen sink" app. They could be simplified, but there'd be sacrifices to make in doing so... The number of standards with which a browser complies is mind boggling. Although, it's great that there're a few advanced, independent implementations (for which we need to thank Mozilla especially).
I think the link problem is due to Microsoft creating HTML formatted email & having a stupid filename/mime type model & integrating their browser into the OS.
@lightweight I can't disagree!
But at the same time I'm someone who's willing to make those sacrifices, and figure out how big they actually are.
@alcinnz I'll watch with interest :)
