Two days ago, I launched [Keyoxide.org](https://keyoxide.org) which provides a few similar functions as [Keybase.io](https://keybase.io) but in an Open Source package. I've been wanting to write this post for a while but felt it could be perceived as disingenuous if posted before making my own project public. Therefore, I post this now.
The Keybase.io website uses non-optimized resources resulting in a slow pageload and 5+ year old versions of libraries with known and public security vulnerabilities.
## The Keybase.io website
I have opinions about the Keybase service, but this post is not about that. This is about the facts behind their website, [Keybase.io](https://keybase.io) and more specifically their [encrypt](https://keybase.io/encrypt) page, the one you use to **encrypt private and confidential messages**.
