"Fennec F-Droid, which is F-Droid’s unbranded Firefox build, updated to v60, finally bringing all Firefox quantum improvements to android.

By the way, several people told us they find the icon ugly. Think you can do better? Here’s your chance! Send us a new design, and we might make it the official new Fennec F-Droid icon!" according to the latest TWiF @fdroidorg

Weird that you couldn't downgrade, but at least the workaround worked.

"We have decoded the radiosignal we detected, from thirty lightyears away."
"Already? What does it say?"
"It says 'Our leaders are vain and corrupt'."
"Huh. Some things are universal, eh?"
"Originally sent from Earth sixty years ago."
"From here?"
"Amplified and reflected back."

10 years ago I started using ad blockers because I thought ads were annoying. Now I think that's the _least_ important reason to use them.

I think we should call them "browser firewalls." That more accurately describes their purpose.

@lychee @Tusky @fdroidorg If that's the issue, I'd be happy to make a donation towards increasing resources for the #FDroid build farm.

If we want people to use the fediverse, then we need to focus on them, all of them.

They don't care about OCAPs or datashards, they care about real life privacy, safety and security.

Attending a conference in Prague will not solve the abuse, cyberbullying and stalking problems on the internet and fediverse.

It's up to the fediverse developers to take action.

If you want to steward an ActivityPub Conference, you have to prioritize accessibility.

Not everyone can fly or drive to the location.

Some ideas to improve accessibility:

- Adopt Code of Conduct.

- Accept pre-recorded talks.

- Prioritize diversity over clout.

- Stream the conference live.

I hope they will become good friends.

Seriously need to go back and buy the sugar canister so I can grow sugarcane and take my dorkiness to even greater heights.

Thanks to @Mastodon for the shout out 😍 :blobaww:

We all know that Google (with Chrome-ium) has at least close to 90% of the browser marketshare on the internet.

Which is your primary browser on your computer?

Remember that Brave, Opera and Edge are Chromium derivatives. I consider Safari to be separate since it's Webkit and not Blink.
