Seriously, @mozilla ?
Not only you went and implemented this DRM crap and now you're downloading non-free binaries behind our back???

Hot take: Firefox may be open source but it's not free software any more than Google Chrome.

* new kind of browsers needed *
time to replace js with lua
@mmu_man @mozilla

@hansbauer @jorin @mozilla I wonder if NetSurf would accept support for <script type="text/lua"> :D

@mmu_man @hansbauer @jorin @mozilla
tbh with JS to Lua transpilers kinda already existing, LuaJIT might be good enough for everyday browsing

but what if, What If!!! we just... don't put scripting into browsers.... and build better OSs instead

kinda what @Shamar is doing

@mmu_man @hansbauer @jorin @mozilla @Shamar

like, getting a new, majorly backwards incompatible technology accepted is always a big hurdle so why not fix the issue at the right level of abstraction and yeet the browser stack out the window together with bad kernels and userspaces?

when i said about replacing js, i meant not for the masses and thinking of retro compatibility. it was just for playing around with the possibilities. i feel anything that is though for the masses and to be widely adopted, especially something complex as an entire os, never come out of the paper without the blessings of the industry giants. better do something small, play around it and let it evolve.
