I appreciate this WordPress philosophy overview. More products should be built with these principles in mind:
Works with little configuration and setup
Designed for the majority
Makes decisions, not options
Clean, lean and mean
Strives for simplicity

DeepL is such a great alternative to Google Translate and they just added support for 13 new European languages! 👏
I hope Firefox and Brave work on an official integration with DeepL as there is a real need for this.
Today marks one year since I joined my co-founder Uku to work on @plausible. And what a year it has been! 🥳
