Microsoft is a criminal organisation. There is no such thing as "a new Microsoft". It's all gloss, the same machinery of destruction, corruption, and a complete absence of any moral or ethical sense remains intact.

"Link Click Analytics and Privacy" by John Wilander https://webkit.org/blog/8821/link-click-analytics-and-privacy/
Good example of the kind of tradeoffs browsers often have to make. "Just turning off the Ping attribute or the Beacon API doesn’t solve the privacy implications of link click analytics. Instead, it creates an incentive for websites to adopt tracking techniques that hurt the user experience."
The level of general understanding of how modern technology works & the implications is shockingly poor.
e.g. big news today (and many people horrified) because all technology companies have humans listen to digital assistant voice commands to help train the "AI".
General public not at all bothered by machines listening/understanding/acting on the same data which is MUCH worse.
Big education effort is needed here

I'm a high school dropout that has never taken any CS or computer classes.
Web development is just a hobby of mine, I work in the auto industry.
I'm so proud of this project, I never would have imagined that I could make something like this.
Thank you for helping me realize credentialism isn't so important as you think. ❤️
