Incognito browsing mode should not be called incognito mode. You are literally only hiding things from yourself and people who you trust to share your device with.

The redesign looks a ton better. The color scheme was a little bit to extreme before.

My new favorite discovery with gnome is that if epiphany/gnome web is installed, the gnome search feature will fall back on doing a search through the default search engine. so setting the default to ddg allows me to use bangs right from the gnome search bar. ie: typing (super)+!osm iowa from nothing being open will open a browser and search open street maps for iowa.

@polyplacophora @farlopito @fdroidorg Hi! Thank you for supporting us with a paid account. It means a lot. The process of publishing our app on F-droid has already started.

It's Saturday, but here's my #ScreenshotSunday since I won't be around much tomorrow.

It's a rather fresh installation of Ubuntu 18.10 and I would love people's recommendations on their favorite customizations and apps.

One year ago, I installed GNU/Linux for the first time on my machine as the only OS. I had dual booted and run vms for a while, but had never committed fully because of needing to use Windows for school or other things. A year later, I can't even imagine going back.

Logging in from home with Linux is so frustrating sometimes. The client I work with has a browser based solution for mac and linux, but it is down, and I'm not sure if it's ever coming back. Having to spin up a Win10 VM in order to log in. So basically I have a 15 GB RDP Client on my machine. 馃様
