1.Better crypto (replaced SHA1/DH/RSA1024 with SHA3/ed25519/curve25519)
i know ... it should be operational in few years ... we are running an obsolete browser & firefox is not concerned : it is a corrupted choice ... which is showing its real face day by day since yet few years.
Most of sites on the net should have to be updated then the services then your computer then the router then the cable then the satellites , and in which order ?
The next generation is a good innovation but sha3/ed/curve could be a part of a browser now.
fed up !
Someone needs to read or reread: 'The Rise of ``Worse is Better''' by Richard Gabriel. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Worse_is_better I almost regret linking the article- the effort of web searching for it illustrates the very point of the article itself, and there is plenty of commentary- Getting dramatic about a "corrupted choice... showing it's real face" isn't actually helpful. Kludges that work "good enough" are pretty much the nature of software everywhere, not just cryptography. Take a step back, breathe, count to ten.
