Websites as Dense as Neutron Stars

2020-10-13

for freaking goodness’s sake.

the websites of both my uni and my bank are crapping themselves out today

they are both massive tracker- and javascript-laden websites that i have no choice but to use ungoogled-chromium for, because they will not work with icecat.

i only use chromium to access these two websites, and they are both slow and buggy. so much for the modern web, eh?

it seems as if whenever i have to deal with some arm of the state through my computer, it refuses me access because i disable so much of their ability to track me, and i have to resort to a lower mode of using the web.

very frustrating.

both of these websites are the type that, even if you temporarily disable your safety features just for that website, the application can still detect if you merely have them /installed/ and will not provide you with access to your own data.
