How do I follow you ?
@gnupropaganda I agree with this point completely. I think it should be possible to build an electron replacement using the Firefox engine. When developers choose electron, they also choose WebKit which further proliferates the use of one html toolkit... Which further encourages web developers to optimise for WebKit than for the truly open web.
I'm willing to work on a Firefox based ethical and free-er electron replacement!
@gnupropaganda it's easy tho
What about Riot.im?
@gnupropaganda well sure... but would you give me some alternatives that work almost identially to GitKraken, VSCode/Codium and Discord?
Oh yea, and I need to be able to use Discord to communicate with friends :)
So make a version of Electron with the proprietary parts removed, wouldn't that solve the issue?
@gnupropaganda well shit.
Wait, does this mean that my application is non free since it uses electron? It is GPL-3.0 licensed.
