Hey @Purism, the conversation @email@example.com, @firstname.lastname@example.org, and @masterofthetiger are having (https://mastodon.at/@switchingsocial/102717198321863642) is pretty relevant - especially after your (imo terrible) last #PureBrowser rollout.
The last rollout of PureBrowser was not particularly positive. https://saewyc.ca/l/20
Most of the config reset was to Mozilla's defaults. It even lost uBlock. That is not an argument against Purism; it is a critical comment on their fork considering their principled position on privacy and libre.
I spent some time looking at GNOME Web today, and most of what I see I like. But tell me if you know how to configure the block lists for your language/region/context? Cannot find that.
You make it sound like they intentionally or carelessly did that to you. Staff says there were lots of upstream changes.
Ublock can be reinstalled.
(Not saying it's ideal)
