"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

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

Brave is showing up in my newsfeeds again, so

Periodic reminder that Brendan Eich, the CEO of Brave Software, is a homophobe who donates to anti-LGBT organizations.

I'm not saying that you shouldn't use the browser. But you should probably be wary of any monetization attempts, since we know where that money will go.

Desperately looking for someone to keep my cat for two weeks in December, in #London.

If anyone is interested, please contact me. I can pay.

Wow!

The recent influx of accounts from India has surely opened the door wide for me to learn more about a place and culture with which I am not familiar.

The fediverse is a fantastic "place". It shreds borders.

Thanks, everyone!

+ I'm old enough to remember the Web of the 1990s/ 2000s.
It was a maze. You followed hypertext links, stumbled into forums and early troll-caves, used Slashdot and GoTo, experimented with LiveJournal and Blogger.

It wasn't safe, it was filled with weirdness, appealed heavily to geeks and loners. Being on the web in that era was a serious trip.

But it wasn't corporate. It wasn't the tool of major governments, yet. It was defiantly decentralised, and when you were online...

... you felt free.

Most of the food and drinks you buy are made by just 10 companies. I love how people who do scaremongering regarding communism conveniently forget that the things they keep worrying about are actually happening under capitalism today.

Theming feature will be available very soon (thanks to feedback of beta testers).
I removed the quick theme switcher, everything will be managed on settings from the "Theming" tab.
Last step: export themes in a file to restore or share them.

I don't really have a point here but I guess if I did, it'd be "Act like your radical stance is already the prevailing opinion and you will generally have much more success in spreading it because as long as you're chill and normal about it, the vast majority of the time people won't care enough to oppose you, and even if they do care, they still probably won't say anything if they think they're going against the perceived majority."

Why did I just get an e-mail from Youtube about a terms of service update. I don't have a single Google account and never had one.

"You have received this mandatory service announcement to update you about important changes to the YouTube Terms."

Perhabs it's mandatory for all the e-mail addresses Google has scraped from the web?
