well uh

good luck with that i guess

@hierarchon oh my god

that's amazingly terrible

"why don't we take an already high latency task... and add more latency..."

@hierarchon
This isn't a security hole it's a security grand fucking canyon.

@hierarchon imagine a tech world in which software are so horrendously developed that you need to pay some random company to "optimize" performance

@Arteneko @hierarchon that's this one. from Connectix RAM Doubler to Azul Zing to that guy my last employer paid to give us advice we ignored about Postgres, paying random companies to optimize performance is a long-standing industry tradition

@hierarchon "Dear user, we absolutely will not just steal all of your data and record every keystroke you enter into browser, our hacks are for performance, swear on me mum's life."

@hierarchon the funniest part is that it's an electron app

do they know what electron is

@00dani @hierarchon at this point I would assume they know they're running a scam tbh

@hierarchon I had a project earlier that had a major data platform built entirely web based. Needed to spin up a 16GB Amazon remote workspace so that I could operate it.

@aj happy to help :)

@hierarchon Loading my web browser from the web so that I can load webpages from the web, what magic is this?
