analytics.js is not 10M lines of code.
(about 1300 lines of code) all you want and try to rewrite part of it in
you really believe it is doable.
My posts about the impossibility to exercise freedom 1 were about the large
code base of browsers.
Studying 10M lines of code is too much work for one single person (who can
however focus on a few features or even a whole module). It is not too much
work for a whole community. Part of that community actually *wrote* the 10M
lines of code.
The actual intent is not that because telemetry reports things even without
"E.g." introduces an example. The telemetry module does not exclusively deal
shows how the telemetry data help the developer identify and prioritize bugs
that cause many crashes in practice.
Yet in combination with "look no further than GNU Icecat" it implies exactly
No, it does not.
And what is "not malicious" then? Unsafe? lol
A malicious functionality is, by definition, *designed* to abuse the users.
A bug creating a vulnerability is *unintended*. So, yes, "unsafe" software
can be "not malicious".
Where is the list of vulnerabilities?
