This post will prob be lost in the abyss, but I have been using chromium on xubuntu for years, with the dark theme. I had previously made a thread on /gg/ about it here: https://enrive.org/gg/thread/7449 Just now, stylish became disabled, and I had to manually re-enable it. It still works, but I seen this message when I went to my extensions tab: >This extension violates the Chrome Web Store policy.

I haven't done any testing on it yet, but it appears there's a workaround called "Stylus" >For anyone looking for an alternative, I highly recommend Stylus which is based on an older version of Stylish and is open source. >Firefox: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/styl-us/ >Chrome: >https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/stylus/clngdbkpkpeebahjckkjfobafhncgmne?hl=sw Since I currently have stylish, installed, and have re-enabled it, I can still use the dark theme here, and I have installed another dark theme from userstyles called global dark >https://userstyles.org/styles/31267/global-dark-style-changes-everything-to-dark

It gets worse. I'll be uninstalling this extension after I post this.. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1472948

>>4529 >https://robertheaton.com/2018/07/02/stylish-browser-extension-steals-your-internet-history/ >Unfortunately, since January 2017, Stylish has been augmented with bonus spyware that records every single website that I and its 2 million other users visit [EDIT - I am told that the Chrome version has had tracking since January 2017, but the Firefox version has only had it since March 2018]. Stylish sends our complete browsing activity back to its servers, together with a unique identifier. This allows it’s new owner, SimilarWeb, to connect all of an individual’s actions into a single profile. And for users like me who have created a Stylish account on userstyles.org, this unique identifier can easily be linked to a login cookie. This means that not only does SimilarWeb own a copy of our complete browsing histories, they also own enough other data to theoretically tie these histories to email addresses and real-world identities.

>>4530 >https://robertheaton.com/2018/07/23/no-you-shouldnt-use-the-new-version-of-stylish/ >No, you shouldn't use the new version of Stylish either 23 Jul 2018 >UPDATE 2018-07-23: Stylish v3.1.5 has also been yanked from the Firefox add-on store. This is for the best. >2 days after I published ‘“Stylish” browser extension steals all your internet history’, Stylish was pulled from the Chrome and Firefox stores. The story echoed around parts of the internet for a few days, my name was misspelled on several right-wing British news websites, and I felt that I’d helped make the world a fractionally better place. However, Stylish v3.1.5 is now back in the Firefox add-on store, and it’s bigger and better and more technically compliant than ever.

>>

>>4531 >Will SimilarWeb (the adtech company that owns Stylish) try to sneak in more underhanded tracking in the future? I don’t see why not. Can we trust them? In my opinion, no. But thanks to the open source Stylish clone “Stylus”, these aren’t even questions that need resolving. If you want to change the way that the internet looks, just use Stylus. It is functionally identical to Stylish, apart from the facts that it has never contained any spyware, and is not owned by a company that makes its money by selling your data. >To give a small amount of credit where a small amount of credit is due, Stylish v3.1.5 is more up front about its plans for tracking your entire online life. It comes with a tastefully designed startup screen asking whether you would like to opt-in to having all your browsing history sent to the SimilarWeb servers. If you tick the boxes saying “no, obviously not” then it also features an aesthetically pleasing design dark pattern designed to trick you into accidentally changing your mind. >I suppose this is progress, but I can’t imagine that it will be making it into any TED talks any time soon.

>https://userstyles.org/faq >How does data improve Stylish services? >Stylish collects from our users data which is necessary for core features of our browser extensions. As Stylish offers and recommends styles for web pages, we need to know which web pages you visit. >What type of data does Stylish collect? >Stylish collects and anonymizes or de-identifies browsing data, as detailed in our privacy policy: https://userstyles.org/login/policy. This data is used by Stylish to provide you with multiple services, including showing you relevant and suggested styles for web pages you visit, as well as the install count for each style.

>>

>>4535 >Does Stylish automatically collect and store my private information? >No, Stylish does not automatically collect and store private information. We care very much about our users’ privacy and use great efforts to ensure that we only collect and store data that is necessary for our features, and that the data collected is either non-personal or is anonymized or de-identified so that it cannot be used to determine your identity. Information voluntarily provided by users who choose to register is used only to enable them to create styles, to advise them of feature updates and to provide support. We never use any of the data collected to attempt to determine the identity of any users, for profiling or direct marketing purposes. >Can I opt out of sharing data? >When you use Stylish you have full control over what information you share. It’s very easy to opt out of sharing data. All you need to do is go to the options page inside the extension and uncheck the box next to “Send anonymous data to Stylish developers”. However, once you do, you will no longer be able to receive suggestions for available and recommended styles, but you’ll still be able to browse for and install styles through our website - Userstyles.org.
