Most of those scripts are from ad networks, 9 of them are ad networks that begin with the word “ad.”
@laura only one word for that. Ad fundum.
@laura ublock origin and no script, all day long
@fatboy but don’t you find that most sites break?! Surely Mastodon breaks?!
@laura yes! Most definitely breaks most pages.
This is why I use two browsers, one for browsing/reading, second for logins of sites I trust.
@laura Don't worry, ad networks would *never* track which articles you read to profile you, and they would never be abused to deliver malware into your browser.
@bikecurious @laura Yes, that's pretty much what I do: I taught myself to use Alt-C (which opens a fresh, temporary tab container) instead of Ctrl-T, and I have services I log into (Github, ...) pinned to specific, persistent containers.
Generally, the only browser that makes a serious effort at being fingerprinting-resistant is Tor Browser; a number of its privacy features are making it upstream into Firefox, but they aren't always enabled by default.
@laura how many of them are using SRI?
I'm guessing between 0 and 0.
@ben what’s SRI?
