“#Mozilla is scheduled to add a new user anti-fingerprinting technique to Firefox version 67, scheduled for mid-May.
Called "letterboxing," this new technique adds "gray spaces" to the sides of a web page when the user resizes the browser window, which are then gradually removed after the window resize operation has finished.
Letterboxing was originally developed for the #Tor Browser four years ago, in January 2015.”

Basically I wanted to fix the spacing problem with admu treating ^G as a graphic character and maybe got a little carried away. The effect looks pretty cool but I may end up backing it out at some point.
Today I had the opportunity to meet Louis Pouzin, the inventor of datagram, whose work influenced the design of TCP/IP and made Internet possible.
Louis is still active and is doing https://www.open-root.eu , an alternative Internet TLD (domain name extension system)!
