Awesome Wallpaper Sites
It's a shame how the web has gone down over the years because of the advent of Social Media. It seems that not that long ago everybody had their own website and backgrounds were used a lot. The worst thing Yahoo could have done was after purchasing Geocities they shut it down and all of the hard work that people put into their websites and the community spirit that had grown was destroyed. I was a community leader in the Heartland and then a Yahoo Expert once Geocities was closed. But then, Yahoo shut down the experts platform too.

Stop Using Brave Browser!
Several months ago, Brave was involved in a “scandal”. Unfortunately, this incident did not get much media attention, and it’s hard to search for and discover as of today. The report I first saw was by https://androidpolice.com/:
In summary, Brave had been injecting their affiliate codes into popular crypto-currency websites. This means that they had been intercepting your traffic, that they promised was secure by the way, and modifying it.
Additionally, AndroidPolice points out:
This means Brave Software has access to all of your information on those crypto-currency sites as well. They can see your payments/purchases, and your activity on the websites (through affiliate statistics).
Brave doesn’t seem so privacy-focused anymore, does it? They did all of this, without telling the user. This meant that they intentionally didn’t tell the user because they knew it would cause backlash and disruption. They knew one hundred percent what they were doing, and they knew it was unethical.

► What is WebFonts? -WebFonts is a technology that enables people to use fonts on-demand over the Web without requiring installation in the operating system. W3C has experience in downloadable fonts through HTML, CSS2, and SVG. Until recently, downloadable fonts have not been common on the Web due to the lack of an interoperable font format. The WebFonts effort plans to address that through the creation of an industry-supported, open font format for the Web (called "WOFF").
