There's a new "experimental feature" being tested in Firefox 83: sponsored sites in the URL bar.

"Mozilla works with advertising partners to place sponsored tiles on the Firefox home page (or New Tab) that would be useful to Firefox users. Mozilla is paid when users click on sponsored tiles."

support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/s

You can disable this by setting `browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.showSponsoredTopSites` to `false`.

y'a des furieux .... mais des furieux de qualité ! Genre exploiter réellemenet la fibre 2Gbits vendue par Orange, en se passant forcément de leur livebox qui est bloquée avant. Et là, on apprend fortement sur l'infrastructure internet.

J'adore! 😆

Virtual meetings are basically modern seances.

"Elizabeth are you here?"
"Make a sound if you can hear us."
"Is anyone else with you?"
"We can't see you. Can you hear us?"
