With the release of Firefox 120, Global Privacy Control is now exposed as a checkbox in the settings. Considering that Brave has this enabled by default (pretty sure the only way to disable it is through a flag), would it make sense to recommend enabling this for Firefox? Or would concerns over this being a strictly non-default setting with regards to fingerprinting take precedence?
Just to add, here is a good run down of all the notable things with this Firefox release from Frederik Braun, Security Engineer & Manager for Mozilla Firefox.
Firefox 120 is releasing today!
- Fingerprinting protection for unknown Canvas fingerprinters (requires using Enhanced Tracking Protection in Strict mode)!
- Copy URLs with tracking parameters removed!
- WASM GC is shipping!
rlhunits are now actually perceived as lengths!
- HTTP Early Hints Preconnect!
- Various security fixes!
So does this mean CanvasBlocker is now redundant (for those not using RFP)?
