👷🏼‍♀️ Wow. Tons of bug fixes today. People clearly came back from vacation.

🥳 Let's start the year on a positive note! Today let's focus on the good stuff. This helps us start the year with much needed energy. On Monday I'll post about what's broken and needs fixing, because we have that also. Until then, let's start a happy new year! 🍾🎉

The number of Fenix-based browsers is growing. Am I missing any from my collection?

👀 I'm still active. I still track Fenix and AC commits daily despite my recent lack of tweets/toots. I made a commitment to post only new features, not bug fixes. The dev team seems to be focused on fixing bugs. Lots of little anoying things got fixed recently. I aplaud that. 👏

🏠 The home screen is a tiny bit more accessible: now there is no background overlay when the search is focused so you don't need to tap twice when starting a top site. See before is darker than after.

🎉 After landing lots of small fixes, grid view for tabs is out of the secret settings and into the normal settings!

Cool trick: you can choose to see the search engines or the top sites in the new tab. I pick the top sites 😎

➖🔤➕ Today I learned that I can change the font size. Not a new Nightly feature but now it's more visible than in Beta.

🌐👆Nobody guessed the browser in the previous post. It's Mozilla's reference browser. It's a sort testing browser for android components. It's minimalistic but cool. It has a Fenix-like url bar and a Firefox Lite-like search bar. It shares DNA with both.

👂Enough extension spam! Now I listen! What extensions are you using in Firefox Nightly that I should try? What fun new stuff am I missing? 😄

🤖👀 I see bot people! 😬 With the @BotSentinel extension you can see which accounts might be bots while you browse Twitter. Beware, it might slow Twitter a bit since it pulls a lot of data and interacts with the page. You can check each account.
