Since next week starts winter break, I'll be testing some browsers and writing && rewriting some articles.
- SeaMonkey (Long overdue)
- Brave (I've heard they changed some things such as the auto updates), Done
- Chromium (Long overdue), Maybe another day
- Luakit (@acz told me about this one), Maybe another day
- Waterfox (@spywarebuster's idea), Done
Maybe if I have time:
Any other software that needs testing || retesting?
Waterfox, probably. Vivaldi. Maybe Dissenter.
It doesn't look very good for SeaMonkey. It looks like that browser uses location services, Google SafeBrowsing, automatic updates, and more.
Doesn't look good for Waterfox-current either.
Make a whole bunch of automatic connections still.
But at least their website uses Matomo instead of Google Analytics!! lol
I think @anonymous is currently testing it. Unless if I'm mistaken, there was a strange connection librewolf made. So we let the developers know about it to see if it will get fixed before writing the article.
@anonymous, can you take care of Luakit?
Didn't @qorg11 already do it?
Any chances of rating Librewolf?
Yeah this is still in process.
Here's the issue:

In other news I just went through SeaMonkey.
There's no apparent way to disable it's automatic connections. Some of it can be turned off, but it's doesn't fully mitigate it, just takes it from "High" to "Medium".
During spring break, I'll go into depth what the Chromium connections actually do. I'll close this issue now since winter break is finished.
Deleting a branch is permanent. It CANNOT be undone. Continue?
