Universal browser based Dark Mode (Dark Reader) vs. Individual separate black themes on each site

I’m pondering an idea about browser based, concentrated dark mode/dark theme service’s that operate pretty much like current superb add-on Dark Reader.

What makes me wonder why does the community that usually optimizes for not repeating work among developers, does take the burden of developing a dark theme for pretty much every popular web application.

Wouldn’t it be wiser to develop a set of standards when it comes to colour management, maybe even a .darktheme config file to override some of the basic settings, alongside a single browser based dark mode program for every browser that operates on the principle of current dark reader? I mean the reader is so good that I pretty much prefer it to custom made dark modes on most of the sites anyway.

What’s your insight on this matter?

My personal opinion is that it’s the inevitable future, but I haven’t found any signs that the process has started yet.

EDIT- before someone suggests sticking to the Dark Reader extension, It’s all good but compare a little a bit clunky extension developed by few enthusiasts to fully fledged browser options backed by hundreds of full-time developers.

Thanks!

networking – Use local (windows 10) browser to visit sites through remote Ubuntu 18 server?

To access remote content on my Ubuntu server (command line only) I need to enter an IP address, then AUTHORIZE with a code. This authorization can ONLY be done on a web browser with a GUI – so I can’t authorize on the remote command line only Ubuntu machine.

Is it possible with something like Putty to connect to the remote server and have the local browser on my windows 10 machine act as the browser for that remote machine?

How to deal with browser navigation in multi step form with validation

I am not a designer nor UX person. I am implementing an application which has multi-step form. Imagine that in this form some steps (screens) need to be validated before person can proceed to next step.

The application has also its own prev/next buttons with progress (dots), showing the person remaining amount of steps needed to be taken.

I am having issue with how to deal with browser navigation. Ideally I want each step of the form to have its own URL. This means URL would control what is rendered (some data for the form is cached in the browser and prefilled for the user). But what happens when user uses browser navigation to visit an URL that should not be allowed?

Imagine following scenario:

I have screen 1 containing a form and screen 2 containing some content. User needs to fill the form in screen 1 to proceed to screen 2. Let’s say user fills the form and is redirected to screen 2. Now the user decides to go back, either by using application navigation or browser navigation (both is possible). The scenario which I’m trying to figure out is when user clears the form and uses browser back button. At this point the application is in invalid state.

How to deal with this? I don’t know what is the right approach. Maybe I should not let user go to URL that should not be visible to him and instead redirect him to screen 1? But that could be problematic as user would not get any indication.

browser – Does sync work on Firefox Lite for Android

As a privacy conscious user I am trying to decouple as much as possible from our internet overlords Google, Facebook, Twitter et al. To that end I have decided to shift from using Google Chrome to Firefox as my primary web browser both on my computer as well as my Android mobile device.

The main Firefox app for Android is quite big, and there is a smaller substitute for called Firefox lite. My preference is to use Firefox lite but it is essential for me to be able to sync my bookmarks and saved logins across my computer and mobile device. While the main Firefox app allows me to sync, I haven’t been able to figure out how to sync over the Firefox lite app. Has the sync feature been excluded for this “lite” version of Firefox?

linux – Sync a machine’s firefox bookmarks to a tor browser

Is there a way to periodically pull a linux machine’s firefox bookmarks to a linux tor browser ?

  • I mean pull and not sync because I want the URL ending in .onion that I saved in tor browser to stay within these bookmarks and not get pulled onto the firefox bookmarks.
  • However I do want all the up-to-date firefox bookmarks to be retrieved on the tor browser.
  • Also, if I save a non-.onion website on tor I’d like it to be synced on the firefox bookmarks a few moment later — this way I’m not forced to open firefox in parallel, copy paste the URL, and reach it in order to click the star icon (read somewhere that it was dumb connecting to a same server both from tor and clearweb browser at the same time)

Is it possible ? With some rsync/cronjob tedious process ? I read on another thread here on tor stackexchange that using firefoxsync extension would sync more than bookmarks and therefore is dangerous for fingerprinting + I don’t use that feature for now anyway.

web browser – Oculus quest vr url

I’ve been having problems with playing a game on my oculus quest. To play i’d have to search it up on my browser although it says “check always open url link” and i cannot find the check box. i’ve searched for this answer and it said i’d have to use a different browser but i wasn’t sure.
