Evergrande making payments.

Two new IETF standards being designed for privacy: oDoH and oHttp.

It’s being led by Mozilla, Apple, Cloudflare and Fastly.

“(oHttp) is less onerous than Tor browsing, but offering similar protection” - according to Martin Thomson from Mozilla.

Only the proxy will know the user’s IP address, but it will not see the content of the DNS query, as it is channelled back and forth in encrypted form. The resolver will only answer the requests without knowing who sent it.

Cloudflare, as the much criticised, centralised provider for Mozilla’s DoH starter implementation, rushed ahead to implement oblivious ODoH at the end of last year, partnering with PCCW, SURF and Equinix, who act as independent proxy providers.

So private centralized companies still have to be trusted to provide anonymity and encryption inbetween … no thanks.

Didn’t microsoft get sued (successfully) in the past for forcing the users to use Internet explorer in a anti-trust style of suit?

I wonder if one replaces the edge executable with another browser would work. Guess Microsoft malware checker will detect it and replace it.

I am solving that by going Linux fully rather than have anything win 11 around
