Apple calls on UK government to scale back snooper's charter
The Guardian, Dec 21

Apple said it was worried about the scope of the bill as many of the provisions in the bill apply to companies regardless of where they are based, giving the bill international scope, despite being a purely domestic piece of legislation. It also runs the risk of placing companies in a damned if they do, damned if they don’t position

I'm not quite sure about how seriously to take this email service.

Back in 2000, playing with HTML, I was aware of the fact that a website has to be tested with different browsers and different screen resolutions. And I wasn't doing this professionally, just as a hobby. Now, ProtonMail claims to have a super-secure end-to-end encrypted email service, with every line of code written on their own, announcing THE evolution of their platform fitting the needs of professional users, but they aren't aware of this basic stuff?!?

I use it and like it. I see no ads, could be my browser and two extensions I use (Palemoon, NoScript, and AdBlock Latitude). I have to use the old version but dont mind.

Email is a system engineering, not just the privacy caring.
The system reliability needs a long time to get validated by people.
(I once worked on the email systems which have 500 million users.)
