update on last post..:
Duck Duck Go's response
@d4klutz DDG's response seems completely honest and likely true to me. The original accusation didn't really have any proof in the first place. Just that a browser extension that's supposed to detect fingerprinting thinks that it is. DDG gave a detailed and plausible explanation about why it is a false positive.
@kelbot I agree. after reading that, I feel better, but I was unsure at first. which is why I posted here. brighter minds would know. lol
In your first toot you referred to a post on soylentnews. They referred to a discussion in whonix. There was the original claim, but also a prompt denial by another poster who works for DDG. Soylentnews should have mentioned both the claim and the denial.
@d4klutz makes sense to me.
I find that pretty impressive and kudos-worthy.
I wonder why they couldn't jus use CSS media queries instead. But maybe they have a good reason... it's not like I've made any website containing more than 5 lines of JS, so dunno what kinda issues there are...
