Google is blocking niche Linux browsers from accessing services like Gmail https://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2019/12/couldnt-sign-you-in-google-browser-error-linux
@omgubuntu "a browser that doesn't let us keep your account secure" ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
@omgubuntu Does that mean, they are irritated because they cannot track you? That's one more reason to use more niche linux tools and quit that Google crap.
It's like the old "you are using an old browser, find the new IE here ...".
Then you should stop using Gmail :D
@omgubuntu but I mean, they have the reasons — they won't allow embedded browsers to sign in:
Want you to go against it, fake your user agent, it should work.
@omgubuntu And on the day that to use google services you can only do it with chrome, they'll drop the HTTP standard.
This reminds so much of the browser wars when people wanted to stop MS IE from being dominant
@omgubuntu The only solution is to not use any google services. There are many alternatives available for each of them - and many alternatives are respecting privacy.
@omgubuntu Google is the new Microsoft
Also, Gmail has stopped working on android email clients like k9mail. Coincidence?
Fuck you Google!
