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.

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:

First/Last-Tab: Ctrl-1/9 (or Command-1/9): Switch Between Tabs in Any Browser Using Shortcut Keys

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/12/10

Only recently, I learned this works on just about any web-browser:

  • Ctrl-9 (macOS: Command-9) goes to LAST tab
  • Ctrl-1 (macOS: Command-1) goes go FIRST tab

Via: [WayBack] Switch Between Tabs in Any Browser Using Shortcut Keys

For those keyboard ninjas who hate using the mouse, switching between tabs in your browser window is essential since most people probably have a bunch of tabs open at once. […]

If you want to go to a specific tab, you can press CTRL + N, where N is a number between 1 and 8. Unfortunately, you can’t go past 8, so if you have more than eight tabs, you’ll have to use a different keyboard shortcut or just click on it. CTRL + 9 will take you to the last tab, even if there are more than 8!
