screencap webp pictures and save them as something else you tech illiterate zoom zoom.
funnily enough leftypol uses webp for the thumbnails
I wish firefox would let me block webp again, I hate most images here
Save-as-PNG extension on browsers is useful. Also webp is shit.
Vichan has just introduced webp support
>open webp in image editor
>file -> save as…
Not sure if that is effective, since it could just save the webp file with the wrong extension without actually re-encoding the image
so much could be solved if people disregarded google's wishes and just used .jxl>>30736
pls no, webp is a security nightmare.
webp wasnt made by google
But why do we have to go through that process anyway?>>30746
Either it should be: >Boortu saves images as pngs, or gives option on side for png alt download>Leftypol auto converts the webp image to png.
it is, and leftypol already uses it for thumbnailshttps://nvd.nist.gov/vuln/detail/CVE-2023-4863
webp 0day from some months ago that allowed arbitrary code execution, no user interaction required besides entering a site with a malicious webp file>>30749
what are you talking about, libwebp is developed by google
Leftypol produces said thumbnails though. Those are safe from vulns.
so that's one of your methods of tracking/fingeprinting users. publish the code of the site, the one on gitea is horribly outdated.
🤡 meds are not enough, take your electroshock therapy.
Literal what> webp is a security nightmare.
Seems one more good reason to adopt it tbh
>>30781> publish the code of the site, the one on gitea is horribly outdated.
The one on gitea is the one running on the servers. Yes the codebase is old, but if you ever actually looked at it you would have seen that it's being worked upon.
The long term plan is to realign the codebase with upstream vichan
as long as you trust the devs (I don't, so I'm using an old firefox version that lets me disable webp entirely; I can't see thumbnails and my user experience has never been better. this site is substantially better when you ignore 95% of images)
>>30781>she doesn't have access to the secret codebase
What? Did they remove it? The browser I use is based on a pretty recent version but allows disabling it just fine.
yes, it is the firefox tradition of removing useful features. afaik most forks can't really keep up with the bullshit so they just let it happen too I think basilisk/palemoon are the only exceptions, but those have their own, even worse problems
all consumer software is unpatched software. they added a massive vulnerability when they added support for webp, so what makes you think the same isn't true for every other "feature"
so yeah, I just use whatever is more convenient (old firefox)
