So many people saying they're switching from Firefox. Won't this only make the problem worse?

If you're switching to Brave or qutebrowser or UnGoogled Chromium or something, you're only strengthening Google's monopoly. If you're switching to a Webkit-based browser like Epiphany, you're shifting the monopoly towards Safari, whose parent company doesn't consider the Web a priority.

That Mozilla has bad management doesn't change the fact that Firefox is the most viable option for the open web.

Had to play around with docker for an interview today. Did not go well. Oh well. I hope they accept my assessment either way.

I can't watch tutorials/courses in normal speed anymore. 2x is the way.

Saw Scream 5 yesterday and really enjoyed it. I'm a simple slasher fan, tho. Seems like people liked it too since they're already shooting 6. Less thrilled by it.

Hello! 👋 😄

I enjoy building tools as part of a community that empowers people to control and modify their digital workflows by tearing down the boundaries typically imposed by siloed applications from different vendors.

I am organising the Malleable Systems Collective, a community that catalogs and experiments with malleable software and systems.

Personal: convolv.es
Malleable: malleable.systems

If you're interested in writing yourself a text-editor, I cannot recommend this website enough: texteditors.org/cgi-bin/wiki.p

It's not perfect in any means. I still haven't been able to get highlights to work with the codeblocks, didn't get an seo audit yet, and I want to keep it friendlier (?) somehow

Well, the new version of the website is up (daepher.com/). It has a rss feed now, no js (except for a thing with cloudflare that I'm trying to disable), has tiny stylesheet (and a new post about tiny stylesheets!).
