I'm sure nearly two of the three people who use Microsoft's mobile browser will appreciate the effort.

Farking Clown Shoes: I'm sure nearly two of the three people who use Microsoft's mobile browser will appreciate the effort.


The internet browser used by the most people to download Chrome

I didn't even know there was a Microsoft mobile browser....and I've had a cell phone since 2001.

The Daily Fail is not known for their journalistic integrity?

You say that like it matters, Microsoft.
 
2019-01-23 11:28:53 AM  
Apparently the future of the web isnt being annoyed by ads.

It will be notications, pop ups and modals about privace, cookies and integrity coating every page like the plague.

You mean the paper that seriously tried to push a story about a giant crab?
 
2019-01-23 11:31:02 AM  
Neither is Fox News, but Bing pushes that shiat anyway.
 
2019-01-23 11:33:12 AM  
Wait.... Microsoft is complaining about other people's integrity? Don't they have any mirrors in Seattle?

Ha ha!

It's about damned time too.  What does it say about the News of the World, National Enquirer and so on?
 
2019-01-23 11:39:21 AM  
Does that mobile browser run on Linux?

I suspect this article has been read by more people who use Edge (mobile version.).
Edge has 0.07% of the mobile market share of internet use

It is on page 2 after Yandex.....

The sidebar content. The thumbnails can sometimes be borderline NSFW.

You should see what it says about Fark!

"This site contains neither real news, nor is it 'real funny.' We rate it 3 out of 4 on the Ballmer scale, proceed with great caution!"

MikeyFuccon: Quick related FARK question: Why are Daily Express links always labelled possibly NSFW?


Possible nsfw content in the sideboobar.

OT:
I kinda hope it goes just as well as euvsdisinfo. It only took a few months for it to start labelling stuff as fake news because interest groups complained.

And their "we have a transparent feedback mechanism" didn't somehow didn't work until a few days before the court date.
 
2019-01-23 11:45:18 AM  
The message, which is produced by a third-party startup called NewsGuard, tells readers to proceed carefully given that "the site regularly publishes content that has damaged reputations, caused widespread alarm, or constituted harassment or invasion of privacy".

Speaking of "basic standards of accuracy," Guardian...

A third-party plug-in, which you have to download and install for your browser, is not the same as the browser itself.

All the British tabloid papers expose one to the potential if not the actuality of seeing boobs.
 
2019-01-23 11:46:34 AM  
And, yes, I'm aware that Microsoft now installs it for you if you're using mobile versions of Edge, but that doesn't change the fact that it's the plug-in, not the browser, that's providing that message.

IT'S STILL REAL TO ME DAMMIT
 
2019-01-23 11:58:26 AM  
Considering Microsoft Outlook just canned any way to see submerged email metadata/headers, which covers up their lack of useful spam filters, I'm sure wanting to wade through a cookie magnet.

Looks like their revenue stream is now free for all email dangers and with smugly counseled web sites.  What happened?  To them and McAfee.  Now they're almost in the same boat.

But where will I get my news about people that eat couch cushions?
 
2019-01-23 11:59:26 AM  
If you need your browser to tell you that the Fail sucks at journalism, then you're already screwed.

Please whitelist us.*

*Despite the fact that we are doing absolutely nothing to prevent or reduce malvertising because it's our partner adservers' responsibility, but they're doing absolutely nothing as well.

That is why I refuse to whitelist any site. Nobody is taking any responsibility to even attempt to do anything about the malvertising.

I'm working on a plug-in that ranks the validity of the plug-ins that rank the validity of news sites.

I imagine, it must have brought joy to the Guardian guys to report this. Also loved the part:

It gives Mail Online, one of the world's biggest news websites, one out of five on credibility - the same level as the Kremlin-backed RT news service.

This should piss people off more

https://www.theregister.co.uk/2019/01​/​22/google_chrome_browser_ad_content_bl​ock_change/

Google chrome and all chromium browsers want to chuck the api that lets adblocking and and other filtering work.

Noscript has its place. But it doesn't hide elements baked into pages.

It stops pretty much all popups/modals/overlays and certain interstitials(not the Forbes style "true interstitial" ones, though).  Combined with a tool like uBlock Origin, you can avoid almost all annoyances.
