Comment la fondation Mozilla veut créer une IA de confiance pour nous sauver des géants de la tech

Dear #android, #rust / #cargo, #cmake, #dbus, #hp, #mozilla #firefox & #thunderbird, #npm, #pipewire / #pulseaudio, #putty, #python, #steam, #wine, #yarn (and I'm sure many, many others),

Why don't you use #xdg defaults? This doesn't seem ridiculous to you?

Screenshot of the results from the "ls -a" command in my home directory. It shows about 15 hidden folders and files belonging to applications that blatantly disregard XDG specifications.

. #FireFox was almost out of money last year, where did #Mozilla get $30 million to fund an AI project?

2 days ago

Ok, so with #Mozilla taking the #BluePill on the subject of #AI / #LLM (as per their newsletter on today) they key question is:
What other #browser|s are out there? Obviously nothing from #Google (not sure if #Chromium is safe?). While I love the idea of #Tor, for most of my day-to-day I'm ok with slightly less bullet proof stuff. What are YOU using on your desktops and laptops?

Regarding #Mozilla and #AI: In a different world, they would have persisted with #ubiquity and thus AI could seamlessly integrate into #Firefox. Despite claims to the contrary about the impact #artificialintelligence will have on the Internet, it will be deployed, for the most part, at OS level. To make it compelling to a browser, you'd need something like a profile in the cloud. But for that you'd need tab groups and Firefox doesn't have them in any form.

@thunderbird In fact, I learnt a lot about how #Thunderbird and @mozilla are actually related, and I always thought it's a hardwired #Mozilla product just like #Firefox.

I'm really looking forward to the improvements in Supernova and also future updates to #K9Mail. I used to be a #GMail user but ran into performance problems on older devices and under bad networking conditions. Not a problem for good old #IMAP! :)

Mozilla is reportedly working on a fix for this issue, but users with less technical knowledge may be unable to get rid of the locked page even after restarting the browser. This attack is, at its heart, a classic tech support scam.

I had a very different week last week, not being in work and helping manage the Mozilla Festival as a Volunteer Coordinator. As with other non-tech events I help run, there was the same sense of community in the volunteer team - people coming together and using their experience to help others.

It is not so much what you do at a tech event, but what you do when you get back - I very much look forward to sharing a couple of fun projects soon.

2. Drüben (#twitter) durchaus für Info s & Kontakte noch (passiv) nutzen, aber lieber kopieren als retweeten oder cross-posten

3. Dort drüben dann aber gerne (und extra) auch regelmäßig “Werbung” für Masto machen - und/ oder bei “Kampagnen” wie #joinmastodonday oder #LeaveTwitterDay mitmachen

3. abwarten und geduldig sein (denn wenn schon auch #Medium oder #Mozilla im fediverse auftauchen, wächst das fediverse auch langsam an Substanz …

4. auch gerne außerhalb / offline aktiv dezentrale Social Media promoten (z.B. bei Museen, Organisationen, Institutionen …)

5. viel mehr #hashtags, #Followers & andere tools benutzen - aktiv suchen & folgen - ein neues Netzwerk etablieren …

@thunderbird, I'm enjoying the updated Thunderbird 112 Beta UI, but I was wondering if you could give us the option to disable the tab area and/or the new top menubar depending on how we configure our UI. If I choose to use the left-most vertical menubar, the other areas seem redundant and take up space. Otherwise, I like the new direction! 👍

the #openWeb today has no champion. It's really as simple as that. The biggest competitor to Google in the user agent space (#Mozilla #Firefox) has no backbone, and innovation/resistance is mostly left to small realities like the partially closed source @Vivaldi or the one-person project #OtterBrowser —that still depend on #Google (or at best #Apple) for the rendering part. This is dramatic. This is even worse than the browser wars of lore.

The recent developments have made me realize that I should probably write a #FirefoxRequiem series not unlike the #OperaRequiem I started when the first news of its sellout came around, but the truth is that I've never been invested in #Mozilla #Firefox the way I was in the #OperaBrowser, and @mozilla's failure (intentional or not) to keep their browser at the forefront of the defense of #OpenStandards and a free web really doesn't help.

@aral I'm incredibly vocal in my criticisms of #Mozilla. Mozilla only champion #opensource as a means of getting free labour. They genuinely do not care about the community. You only need to look at the terrible software that is #Bugzilla being at the heart of their community facing effort. Honestly, if Mozilla cared more, they'd at least have a clear vision, which should simply be "open, private and modern interaction software". Before Al, we should get a software keyboard. 📚

"A new wave of AI is poised to transform the technologies we use everyday. Trust must be at the core of how we develop and deploy AI, everyday, all the time. It is not an optional ‘add-on’.

Mozilla has long championed a world where AI is more trustworthy, investing in startups, advocating for laws, and mobilizing the public to focus on human agency and accountability in AI.

Now we’re taking the next step: creating a company — and gathering a community — to build a trustworthy open source AI ecosystem.’s mission is to make developing trustworthy AI apps and products easy. To start we will focus on developing tools to build safety and transparency into the heart of recommendation systems and generative AI technologies.

Creating products people love is a great way to influence the world with the values you hold.

Firefox reignited the browser wars. Its marketshare today is not indicative of a loss. Just by being present and holding strong to its values, it keeps Google and Apple more accountable.

Your browser choice is more powerful than you realize. It keeps Mozilla relevant, which keeps Google from turning the Web into a total capitalist surveillance state via Chrome.

ML/AI needs such a player.

Happy to share that mozilla-central is now using the fantastic ruff linter for our Python linting needs!

It lints the entirety of the monorepo in under a second, (compared to 32s for flake8), also replaces a bunch of other linters we use (isort, pylint, pyupgrade) and has the best configuration system for monorepos I've seen in my many years of managing linters on mozilla-central!

They're exploring more support and integrations, such as a ‘share to Mastodon' button on all stories.

How do folks feel about this? My gut reaction is that it's probably good? This and other orgs like #Mozilla firing up servers might look more reliable to people who are wary of volunteer-run instances.
