Some of us install 'Stylish' to force wide columns on Mastodon.. Well apparently it's logging all your internet history to create a profile on users:

Time to uninstall, folks :+\

@rtwx I know, right? I guess we should consider this to be default behaviour of all browser plug-ins now unless they explicitly state otherwise. And even then we probably shouldn't trust them still.

@ben0_o true. I mean, that's why I use Keepass without any browser integration extensions.

Your 🍔 menus are saved!


More than time to uninstall. It’s time to report #Stylish to our respective #gdpr data authorities.

God damnit, I need to find something new to force my web pages into dark mode.

Just use Stylus, it's a decent fork.
