    @Root it is the year 2021. Native development has gone completely extinct. Progressive web apps have take over the internet. If you care about privacy, you have to access the internet from a virtual machine within a virtual machine. Meanwhile, the computer industry has caught up and now monitor stands are sold separately from displays for a minimum of $500.

    @RantSomeWhere don’t forget about cloud gaming and 5g virtual sim cards, volte so your phone is also in the cloud 🙂
    Money is gone and you can buy something only using credit cards so your money is in the cloud too.
    Last people are hiding in forests but drones are already tracking their moves.
    Last thing would be force people to wear computer implants that would monitor their moves when they forget cell phone and monitor their lives 24/7.

    Thanks to internet and the great good.

    we should all make a deal to implement a safety switch in the form of some browser config or something like "devrant.duck" and if its present in your browser the app skips all data collection. And now if someone gets to work on such crap they can put the switch in and the few of us here will be safe-er! I just love conspiracy

    @Hazarth When forced to add tracking, I make it super easy to identify and disable. e.g.
    <img data-user-tracking="..." ... />
