"Firefox 59 adds basic support for decentralised internet protocols, specifically DAT, IPFS and Secure Scuttlebutt."
Huh, that's fascinating. https://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2018/03/firefox-59-changes-download
@deadsuperhero >secure scuttlebutt
who the fuck NAMES this shit?
did they consult the guy who named it "pubsubhubbub"
@deadsuperhero siiigh, this is not true. they do clarify: "users will need to use third-party extensions to actually use them"
here's what really happened: firefox quantum killed "legacy add-ons" that would have allowed extensions that enabled support for DAT, IPFS, etc. there was no way to even implement these in WebExtensions. now there is again. but someone still needs to implement them.
@deadsuperhero it's like saying "Firefox 59 now features basic support for MAGIC!" because they added an API that magical extensions can use, even though they magical extensions don't exist.
lots of these articles are being (hopefully unintentionally) misleading.
