waterfox features ecosia, not bing, rofl. aka ur fakenews

Just installed it, it defaults to bing... ecosia is one of the 'search-engine' options but not the default.

and waterfox remembers history by default

You're right here, but I'm not sure how that's a good thing regarding privacy (from the settings page):

Waterfox will remember your browsing, download, form and search history, and keep cookies from websites you visit.

I misread the waterfox page and they were only boasting about their 'privacy' tab.

and the palemoon/basilisk dev has been known to block some plugins over false/stupid reasons

Not supporting is something different from blocking and for palemoon speaking it doesn't follow Mozilla's line of code for a long time so it's a valid reason to not support their plugin standards.

Waterfox is firefox with 'never remember history' defaulted and late security updates.

How is palemoon (or basilisk) 'cucked' and somehow waterfox not? palemoon runs great on low spec system that can't handle the latest firefox anymore.

Edit: and waterfox features BING, aka the dev gets money from microsoft, why else would he do this?

Pretty sure the Tor-browser out ranks them, but these are nice firefox replacements.

Palemoon is the one I go with when a page is too much of a hassle to access with blockers, it's besides your point also a tat faster than Firefox in my experience.

Ahem, Terry made it clear in words I will not repeat, that he does not want to be associated with Linus. As Terry was a professional and made his own compiler1 .

And yes, please don't point out he used Ubuntu for the live-streams and other network related stuff.

May he code in peace in heaven.

U.S. has spent $6 trillion on wars that killed 500,000 people since 9/11, a report says by magnora7 in news

[–]Mnemonic 1 insightful - 1 funny1 insightful - 0 funny2 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

Wednesday's report found that the "US military is conducting counterterror activities in 76 countries, or about 39 percent of the world's nations, vastly expanding [its mission] across the globe." In addition, these operations "have been accompanied by violations of human rights and civil liberties, in the US and abroad."

This toll "does not include the more than 500,000 deaths from the war in Syria, raging since 2011"

"In addition, this tally does not include 'indirect deaths.' Indirect harm occurs when wars' destruction leads to long term, 'indirect,' consequences for people’s health in war zones, for example because of loss of access to food, water, health facilities, electricity or other infrastructure," it added.

They could have gone with another title...
