The Distributed Wired is coming, anons. Just at the time that we need it most, too.

>The Brave browser recently added support for the InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) protocol in its beta release channel (desktop only).

>IPFS is a peer-to-peer (P2P) protocol that can be used in web browsers to visit websites that are hosted by the website’s visitors instead of a central web server.
>This is called the distributed web.
>When you open an IPFS link (ipfs://example/) in Brave, it will open it using a public web-gateway server by default. Gateways are public web servers that proxy content from the IPFS network via a traditional web server.

I actually haven't downloaded Brave yet. Has anyone here tried it?

>I actually haven't downloaded Brave yet. Has anyone here tried it?
After seeing this thread, I decided to take this version of Brave for a test drive. To see a somewhat mainstream browser support IPFS is heartening. IPFS seemed to load faster then I remember from the last time I looked into it during early testing. It was like at whatever point Tor began to not seem so impractically slow to use regularly. Brave's IPFS interface worked well aside from the fact that cutting and pasting links was a slight hassle and didn't seem fully integrated yet. Nitpicking over a small user experience issue though.
Brave browser is an interesting concept, but it is too bloated for my tastes. Interesting in that there are things like Tor and IPFS all wrapped up in one software package, but that's also the reason I dislike it. Would rather implement both those things separately. I suppose Brave has it's place and I'll follow it's progress, but generally prefer "less is more" alternatives to Firefox and Chrome.

>The real problem is getting people to use it.
Maybe a browser like Brave offering support will help with that?
>how Trump didn't get on gab when he was banned from twitter
Or spin up a Fediverse instance, communicate through that, and give his supporters a forum on something less centralized and more censorship proof. The hippy cliche of "tune in, turn on, and drop out" is good advice for anyone dealing with the headaches of current year centralized internet services and it's surprising that the boomers, who should be most familiar with that phrase from their youth, can't seem to apply that philosophy to the interwebs.

Seems very bare bones for a place that calls itself a zine. And it's only article has many spelling mistakes. I'd also argue the problems the author faces are already solved with Distro's like Ubuntu, Mint, and Pop! OS. I personally don't like the idea of centralizing Linux.

Depends on what for.
Ungoogled Chromium for my botnet stuff like G Drive or Slack which I need for my job, that's why they have their own browser I don't want google to read out any cookies.
Falkon for all nonbotnet stuff like imageboards and Tor when digging deeper.

Before I distrohopped I just brave for the botnet stuff (bc the inbuild adblocker was good when going on yt) and chromium for the normal stuff. But fuck brave. Not sure if I'm going to stick to Falkon but it seems okay, haven't really read into it yet though. I prefer it over Brave because I feel like a faggot with software like that.

It just feels like soyftware. I see that they have useful inbuild adblocker and stuff, but you know something is off, if the logo looks like a it should attract fortnite-players. Also it's build on chromium so ungoogled-chromium is a better option, as it will always be the best chromium-based option. Brave really is just a good browser (imo) if you want to grind it's BAT, which kinda is the biggest cuckold-move in cyberhistory, as your sidehustle would be to let corpos rewire your brain into knowing their products and brands for virtual money that is owned by a big corpo.
Also there was that donation incident, where brave just "took" donations that were donated to creators via brave wallet.
>When Bitcoinist reported on the ability to tip content creators directly from Brave browser, that was a positive thing, right? Actually, not so much when it uses creators’ names and photos, to collect donations ‘for them’, without their consent.

When I was like 13 I experimented with 3L1t3 h4x0r tricks like batch "malware". So I basically wrote a .bat that would delete all drives and saved it in a hidden folder directly besides the porn folder. One glorious day I had an intense boner and needed to fap FAST. I accidentally clicked on the batch file and that was it.
Of course back in the days I had ALL of the good winXP malware sooner or later. Best one was that pajeet scam that made your computer boot into a bluescreen saying you need to buy some shit or call a specific number. Good ol' times.

I started reading a geometry book for high schoolers, I thought it would be an easy warmup before more serious maths. But it turned out to be really hard for me, it is basically an endless collection of proof exercises and I progress very slowly. It makes me feel like I am too stupid for maths.

lol, I find proofs hard too. But I'm kind of resigned to the fact that learning maths is going to take me a very long time, since I'm not doing it for school or university.

It's Birkhoff's "Basic Geometry", it was in one of those "learn maths from scratch" guides with the obligatory anime girl. It's Euclidean but based on Birkhoff's own axioms. I was always bad with geometry and proofs, that's why I chose to study this, to correct some deficiencies so to speak, but it gets pretty frustrating.
