Google cripples ad and tracking blockers: In January, Chromium will switch to Manifest V3 which removes an essential API in favour of an inferior one. As usually, Google is being deceitful and touts security concerns as pretext.
That hits all Chromium based browser, such as my beloved Vivaldi. The team argues with their own browser internal blocker, but that's far worse than uBlock Origin. One of Vivaldi's core promises was privacy, and that will go out of the window. The team simply doesn't react to people pointing that out. They're fucked, and they know it.
So what now? Well, going back to Firefox because that will include the crippled new API for extension compatibility, but also keep the powerful old one specifically so that ad and tracking blockers will keep working. Google has just handed Mozilla a major unique selling point, and miraculously, Mozilla didn't fuck it up.26
I recently installed pi-hole...
Everything was immediately perfect.
So, about two days later, I install a linux system... Hadn't had one when I setup my pi-hole. (Well, no Linux with desktop environment...)
So... Now I had error messages in Chrome... Connection change detected. The page didn't load, 3 seconds later it loaded. Many pages had to be reloaded.
And I focused my Google-Fu on issues connecting to pi-hole. Some issues where there, referring to Safari and pi-hole, but none for Chrome or/and Linux.
But what's a pi-hole? A DNS Resolver/Non-authoritive server and a DHCP server...
Maybe I haven't turned off my router's DHCP server correctly. So, wireshark... "bootp or dns" filter...
All dns communication is perfect, via UDP and from the pi-hole to my machine, not from the router. No DHCP messages from my router either...
Almost accidentally I found a page speaking about this issue. Had nothing to do with the pi-hole. Timing was a coincidence. Had everything to do with IPv6. Somehow that's switching over. Even worst, after reading that, I remembered I had the same issue in the past. I just forgot.
Turning off IPv6 was the solution. And fuck. Let this be a PSA: "Confirm your bloody assumptions when troubleshooting/debugging or waste time like an idiot... Just like me..."
Anybody know any other file based database technologies like sqlite besides sqlite? Struggled to find any if they exist, my google-fu sucks20
