1. Firefox could soon block cryptominers and fingerprinters Feb 11, 2019, 12:52 Simon Says
 
Good thing for fingerprinters, but miners? All of them? Those that hijack your cpu/gpu without asking, yes, block'em.

But those that are optional opt-in to support a website you like? Hmmm...

Heck, I wouldn't mind having my spare CPU/GPU cycles ( priority on "idle" ) used by Bluesnews to help with the funding while I browse news and post comments and for it to stop as soon as no more browser windows are on the site. Just have it as an optional opt-in which you can opt-out of anytime you want.

It's all about choice, as long as my free will is respected... I'm ok with it. Especially during winter, if it's not my computer heating the room it'll be the electric heater, one way or another, I'll pay for that current. Of course, in the summer I'd probably shut the damn thing off xD.
