The summary of your Data Policy insists on privacy and sovereignty.
I came to test your tool as a Diigo user on Firefox. I was used to the tool (Diigo) collecting data only if I took action. After a while, I realised that your default setting makes your tool record and index pretty much all my browsing.
I think the default is wrong. I’m aware I skipped something (a startup wizard) but the default should protect my privacy better. You probably consider that, well, this is local to my computer. What if e.g. “my” machine is my corporate computer, or a friend’s computer, or whatever… The default should be: nothing is stored unless the user takes explicit action with your tool. You might think that the browser records the history anyway. Well, actually, the user might have changed the settings of the browser to NOT record the history.
I went through the settings to find a “delete my data” button. I found none. It could be added on the “Privacy” tab, next to the statement that “Your personal data is yours”. The data is supposedly mine, but I couldn’t find exactly where it is stored, and I was not given an easy way to delete it. Maybe Memex deletes all data when the firefix extension is uninstalled, but I’d rather not rely on that assumption.
Sorry for the bad vibe. For the rest, even though I couldn’t test much, what I saw impressed me. Congratulation and good luck.
Firefox 68.0 ESR. Memex extension downloaded yesterday.
We highly value your data ownership & privacy. We don’t just say so. In fact Memex was built around giving you maximum data ownership and sovereignty. All personal data stays on your computer if you don’t choose to share it with someone or back it up to a provider of your choice
