@fedilab gotta love the Xmas profile logo Fedilab!
I have planned some improvements with Fedilab.
- I will replace the discover users feature (currently done via the Trunk API) with the profile discovery.
- History! I am on it.
- Huge improvements planned. Even the cross-account actions.
- Its custom layout/actions like for Peertube or Pixelfed.
Regarding "SSL encryption":
TLS 1.0 was defined more than 20 years ago, the latest standard is TLS 1.3 (2018). The last version of SSL (SSL 3.0, released in 1996) was deprecated more than 4 years ago.
Why do people still write "SSL encryption" in their privacy policies? Nowadays, there should only be TLS encryption.
