  • Demystifying the Shadow DOM
    1 project | news.ycombinator.com | 9 Apr 2024
    One of the unexpected use of shadow DOMs for me was a document generated for image resource URLs [1], because the HTML standard apparently specifies the exact DOM structure of the generated document except for the `` element [2].

  • Detect when your installed Chrome extensions have changed owners
    8 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 6 Mar 2024
    Recently my favorite open source mouse gestures extension SmartUp Gestures was taken over by some shady entity (with github no longer being updated of course).

    I opened Chrome ticket that they should ask to re-enable extension when ownership changes. They just closed the ticket replying with this link:

  • Supermium – Chromium fork for Win 2003 and newer
    6 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 3 Mar 2024
    Hmm. It looks like files with the .lnk or .pif file extension can only be downloaded on a user gesture: https://chromium.googlesource.com/chromium/src/+/39841e54180...

    So it can't be done silently. Although, I do wish the type was marked "DANGEROUS" a la dll files.

  • New Linux glibc flaw lets attackers get root on major distros

    On Linux, Chromium uses setuid or user namespaces to restrict the access of sandboxed components and seccomp-bpf to reduce the kernel attack surface.

    For the sake of completeness, I've traced the evolution of the notice over time:

    From 2008-07-26: "Going incognito doesn't affect the behavior of other people, servers, or software. Be wary of: / • Websites that collect or share information about you / • Internet service providers or employers that track the pages you visit / • Malicious software that tracks your keystrokes in exchange for free smileys / • Surveillance by secret agents / • People standing behind you" (https://chromium.googlesource.com/chromium/src/+/09911bf300f...)

    (Note that some of these were behind a feature flag for a few months.) Also, it looks like they've been intending to modify the new-tab page text for Incognito windows for some time, as part of the "Revamped Incognito NTP" project. You can view the modified text with 'chromium --enable-features=IncognitoNtpRevamp':

    I think its weird that Vercel has this limit. There is no practical reason I can think of for having such a limit on URL characters that is so small. Chrome suggests a 2MB limit[0] for example. The platform itself doesn't have one, and Firefox I believe if memory serves (I can't find the source for this claim atm) is 1 MB effectively, and I don't think Safari is any lower than that either (and may well be more inline with Chrome on this, at 2 MB)

    Yes. Even without enabling root, you can install Termux[1] and have a full Linux cli environment with ssh.

    > don't understand not more people want to access their DCIM folder via sshfs

    I agree. I sync my camera folder with Syncthing[1], so as soon as I take a photo it is available on my laptop.

    With this, I was able to cross compile lone for x86_64 from within the Termux environment of my aarch64 smartphone. All I had to do was obtain the Linux user space API headers for x86_64.

    I made a Termux package request for multiplatform Linux UAPI headers specifically so I could cross compile lone but unfortunately it was rejected.
