Matrix vs. XMPP: Which is Better for Actually Secure Messaging? (Unlike Telegram, Whatsapp, etc.)

We have updated Tutanota! 😀🥳 You can now minimize the mail window, look up something within another email, your calendar or elsewhere, and then go back to your email and continue the draft! We hope you enjoy the update. 😎

Are you looking for people to follow on Mastodon and the Fediverse?

(If a category has several pages of follows, click "show older" at the bottom to see the next page.)

This is just a tiny fraction of accounts on here, but hopefully it will give people's timelines a good start.

Please do share this with anyone you think might benefit, for example people new to the Fediverse.

Related: There should be a search engine specifically made for searching for git repositories and source code online, increasing discoverability for FOSS software not hosted on GitHub.

It would have an index of cgit, Gogs, and Gitea instances, along with whatever else is also applicable.

Does such a search engine exist?
If not, can we make it happen?

Is there a way to update apps installed with f-Droid without having to go to the install screen, explicitly hit install, and wait for it to fully install?

It's not that much of a hassle, but if there are a lot of updates, it can be annoying to have to do that for each and every one individually.

Consider Store as an alternative to .

What it is:
- it is a Google Play Store mirror
- open source and free
- no tracking
- available on F-Droid ()
- works without a Google account
- doesn't need Google Play Services (nor )
- not recommended: you can log in with a Google account if you wish
- UI is way easier to navigate compared to Google's Store

@swashberry If you search for a twitter handle and add to it, you can follow the public posts of that handle in the fedi.

Due to a bug in Outlook, Tutanota users were not able to forward emails to Outlook 365. If you were affected by this, please try again as it seems like Microsoft has fixed the issue now.

I really dont get why people would prefer zoom over something like for basic confrences

China's Digital Currency Has Nothing To Do With Bitcoin

"The digital Yuan is not a peer-to-peer currency."

The virus was a fantastic gift to tattletales and busybodies, who were suddenly allowed to wander about scolding everyone. Like their troll cousins, I'm not sure that after having tasted such power the Scolds will willingly return to their miserable little holes, but banishing them will be this year's task.
