Amfora is by far the best Gemini browser. I tried out Lagrange for a GUI experience, but something about using it was depressing. Props to @makeworld for creating something so great to use.
I've had to move to Safari (Chromium causing segfaults on Big Sur for some reason), and it's not a terrible experience.
The aesthetic is infinitely better than Chromium, obviously much more Mac native. Also just generally faster.
Extension ecosystem is lacking however. Missing fairly critical stuff like a PrivacyRedirect port, cookie management, etc. Hoping the ecosystem improves over time (that or the bug in macOS/Chromium gets fixed).
For the past week or so, my computer has been crashing with a kernel panic all the time. Moved to Safari from Chrome and it stopped, but returned to day (crashed 3 times). Each time, the screen goes black and the fans ramp up quickly before going silent again. I remember reading an article somewhere about the "sigh/puff of death" on Big Sur, but can't find it anymore.
Holy fuck please help.
Taking a break from my main work rn to destress, decided to make more icons for Tofu (https://github.com/calleluks/Tofu). Using Inkscape to edit and export svgs, and it's honestly a pretty great experience. Was scared coming from a (def not pirated copy of) Sketch that it was going to be lacking and difficult to use. Nope.
