@privacybrowser agreed. But on the development side... how does one write responsive web apps without having a way to check determine the device?
@benjaminpaikjones Ultimately, if we want to get any sort of privacy on the internet, we need to get rid of the idea of building web apps.
“Another way of saying this is that I think the browser should be a limited client instead of a general computing platform. This philosophy is in direct opposition to that held by Google or Mozilla, who believe that the browser should be the operating system.”
@benjaminpaikjones This philosophy doesn’t make me popular with web developers. But I don’t see any other course that doesn’t involve some version of “Privacy doesn’t matter.”
I totally agree with your perspective on this. I will always prefer a local app on my device over any kind of web apps. Web apps are slow and inefficient compared to local apps. The only reason I would ever prefer a web app is when I wanna do something very simple and don't wanna install an entire app for that simple thing.
I can't believe there are things like electron, and people make apps using it 🤦
