guess which all-powerful tech monopoly is breaking ublock origin (and umatrix, and likely many other similar add-ons, such as noscript) in their browser, which happens to be the most popular browser in the world?

bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/i

who could have foreseen this? who would ever think that an advertising company's web browser would end up breaking compatibility with an ad blocker? frankly i'm shocked

@lynnesbian
i like a few comments down where the chromium devs are like
"please stop talking about this in public and email us instead where we can safely ignore it"

@catoutofbed @lynnesbian This is legit a problem, though; it's good to have a place where official bug and feature discussions happen publicly.

Having the entire internet rampage in and yell about it doesn't effect a sit-in. Instead, it just makes the official discussion go elsewhere, more private.

So I don't think it's inappropriate to say "let's take the larger discussion elsewhere".

@varx @lynnesbian its mostly that theres no public facing discussion of an issue that affects a lot of people
this feeps less like a good faith "lets talk about this" and more like a roundabout way to stop talking about this while pretending otherwise

i get why having a public discussion in comments isnt great but moving it behind the scenes is suspicious in this case
