iOS/Android Privacy: InAppBrowser.com – see what JavaScript commands get injected through an in-app browser · Felix Krause

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/08/31

Especially on Archive, but also on Android and other mobile operating systems, mobile apps can have their in-app browsers to circumvent the OS provided wrapper around the system browser.

On iOS, the Safari is the only system browser engine whereas on Android you can have other engines too, so less Android applications have in-app browsers.

Most of those in-app browsers are in social media applications that go to great length to keep their users inside a walled garden.

The site [Wayback/Archive] inAppBrowser.com helps checking how severely information is leaked through the in-app browser as those potentially have a lot of control. TikTok is worst capturing all input including credentials like user names and passwords.

Converting inline svg xml to png

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/07/19

A while ago, I had a web page showing the logo as inline svg xml code.

It took a while to find a place to convert that on-line: [Wayback/Archive.is] inline svg xml to png – online html sandbox – InfoHeap (via [Wayback/Archive.is] Convert svg xml text to png image using canvas – InfoHeap):

The solution is a bit of JavaScript (quoted below) that you can run-online: modify the svg bit in it, then run it, scroll down in the result and verify if the canvas fits (when not: adapt the canvas side, then re-run).

The svg xml code needs to be all on one line, so remove any line breaks in it before running.

I have tested it in Chrome, but it should work in non-Chromium browsers like Firefox as well.

The inner workings of the JavaScript conversion code is explained in [Wayback/Archive.is] html – Convert embedded SVG to PNG in-place – Stack Overflow with more demo code at [Archive.is] Rasterizing In-Document SVG (thanks [Wayback] Phrogz!).

Automatically reload page in Chrome without plugin – Super User

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/07/14

Below is a cool solution to refresh a page using a bookmarklet is to embed it into an iframe, then automatically reload it every interval.

It for instance works for the [Wayback/Archive.is] Woonveilig and often in Fritz!Box environments.

[Wayback] Jon described the below method as a solution for his own question, 6 years after asking it in [Wayback/Archive.is] Automatically reload page in Chrome without plugin – Super User.

So I made this a bookmark:


javascript:document.getElementsByTagName("body")[0].innerHTML = "<iframe id=\"testFrame\" src=\""+window.location.toString()+"\" style=\"position: absolute; top:0; left:0; right:0; bottom:0; width:100%; height:100%;\"><\/iframe>";reloadTimer = setInterval(function(){ document.getElementById("testFrame").src=document.getElementById("testFrame").src },5*60*1000)

(it is in a gist as the WordPress editors keep killing the embedded html code, despite it being escaped within <code> tags.

A twitter call to say nice things about technology sparked interesting threads

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/05/27

A while ago [Archive.is] Adam Jacob on Twitter: “Let’s say nice things about technology today. I’ll start. If it wasn’t for @lkanies and @puppetize, there is no way we would have been able to adapt as an industry to the rise of the cloud. Quote tweet me with your own.” sparked some interesting threads.

First posts are below; click on them to see the full threads.

Some links on Chrome not prompting to save passwords (when Firefox and Safari do)

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/01/20

For quite some time now, Chrome (think years) refuses to prompt for saving passwords whereas Firefox and Safari do prompt and save them, even for site types that it used to save passwords for in the past.

It has been annoying enough for too long now that I tried to do better than the Google searches I used back when I saw this happen first.

Below are some links based on new searches (starting with [Wayback] adding a password in chrome settings – Google Search); hopefully I can try them after I made a list of sites that Chrome does not show the password save prompt for.

Solutions I tried that failed (but maybe useful for others):

Solutions still to try:
