The Browser Poll

 Which browser do you use? Thanks for any boosts! I wanna know!


Oh cool! More internet points! I made this poll and it got some attention so I thought I'd share it. 

The first 54 votes of 26,177 were erased after I edited the poll. If you edit a poll's options, such as adding one, all of the votes go back to zero. Oops. I forgot to add safari, and are large amount of people let me know. The most popular "other" answer was  Vivaldi. Other popular answers were versions of Chromium and DuckDuckGo. 

While this was the final results, for a majority of the time, Firefox has a much stronger lead against Chrome. The poll started first around infosec.exchange when the lead was large, and as the poll moved around the fediverse, the gap narrowed. 

A couple other comments sounded like "Why only one option" or why they picked their particular browser. I definitely got the information I was looking for. Check out the post for more replies and cool facts! 

Edit 12/4: After hearing negative comments about Brave's CEO (I haven't researched this myself, so excuse any ambiguity) and all of the responses about Vivaldi, I have migrated.

2023 Resolutions

Welcome to my New Year's Resolutions! I feel a little vulnerable sharing my goals publicly and auditing if I failed or succeeded over the year.  My 2023 Resolutions 1) HACK THE PLANET! 2) Upload to WiGLE every month 3) Post to the blog at least once a month 4) Continue to follow and maintain my vision board. Don't judge me! I thought they were cheesy and weird, but it's been so effective. I made a blog post about it already, but just as a refresher my current board is below. A vision board is almost a resolution list in of itself. These are all the things I want to achieve in the near future.  5) Pass the HAM radio exam 6) Continue in content creation and make articles or a podcast Let's go over what my resolutions where last year: My 2022 Resolutions 1) Make it to 500,000 unique wifi networks I made it in November!

Remove data from Data Brokers

 If you have a little change from your tax return, I have a suggestion on where you should spend it this year. This is not sponsored, not an advertisement, and I do not benefit from these companies. I paid for these services out of pocket on my own. Okay. We all know how scary OSINT can be, being able to look up public information such as age and home address. We hand over this information readily when we use certain products and services. Some of this information is also kept at a criminal level, such as criminal record lookups.  That's not the only information we hand over, we are tracked and have our data collected every day through data brokers. They profit off of our identities selling it back to one another constantly.  There are services now that will automate the removal of your data from data brokers. I found Aura and Incogni when promoted online. Both of them had a referral code, but also a standard discount for an annual subscription instead of monthly. At the time of wr
