just recently someone found out that some chinese companies including Tencent and Alibaba install privileged plugins to users' browsers via enterprise features. Then there comes immediately people "defending" them by saying "oh it's for your f**king security, cuz otherwise your password will be stolen". I feel legitimately pissed off. Just why? Is it so hard to do a simple search oh what you are talking about before blindly saying something loyal to whatever the fuck the company is? How much do they pay you to have you give up your own privacy and say such utterly bullshit? What good can you get by defending companies by making totally nonsense arguments?
@outvi I do not assume anyone to be evil. These companies only become evil because their own moves. I think the disagreement is what counts as a "dick move". Honestly, for me myself I don't expect everyone to hold enough knowledge to understand what's behind their tactics, especially these technical ones
@PeterCxy I'm not sure if the companies "manage" users' browsers really for their users' good, for not seeing their clear official explanation. Judging from the previous performance of the companies, I can only assume" their bad faith.
