Mozilla is working on bringing Firefox 🦊 to iOS 🥂
Real Firefox with Gecko 🦎!
Apple's over a decade long ban on competitive third party browsers has almost certainly cost Firefox significant market share and 100s of millions in lost revenue.
Holy shit, it works! I am officially a full-time #ProfessionalMaintainer ✨🧑💻💼
That means I spend most of my time on #OpenSource maintenance, and I offer retainers to companies that benefit from my work and from access to me.
I now have six amazing clients: Glasklar Teknik AB, Protocol Labs, Latacora, the Interchain Foundation, Smallstep, and @tailscale.
I am excited and relieved to announce this, and wrote up a bunch of details on how I got here and where it's going.
If I'm switching distros, I might as well go all in. I'm switching to Pantheon too 😲 Excellent work @danirabbit 💖️
The trackpad gestures are sublime. The hardware/peripheral configuration is on point. I can tweak the keyboard shortcuts to suit my muscle memory. Outstanding job by the #Nix contributors who pulled all this together ⭐️
@grahamc The notification settings might be what you're looking for 👍
Yet another team at work getting totally f'd by "modern frontend" has caused me to write down why I've been *intensely* frustrated with the clearly broken market for web technology over our long lost decade:
New report from NTIA says the current mobile app store model is harmful to consumers and developers and recommends policy changes to fix it. https://ntia.gov/report/2023/competition-mobile-app-ecosystem
Forward thinking and designed for real life with an improved sideloading and alt store experience, power profiles management, and using a next generation UI toolkit. OS 7 Helps you get the apps you need, Empowers you with new features and settings, and evolves our developer platform. Download it now for a pay-what-you-can price! https://blog.elementary.io/os-7-available-now/
Got lots of setting up to do now with the release of #elementaryOS 7.
The whole family uses it, including our kids - it's so great to have a focused, polished Linux distro for them to do their homework, watch their streams and invite us parents to their Stardew Valley farm every now and then.
Thanks @danirabbit and everyone involved!
I'm very much enjoying my upgraded iPod Classic now that I've fixed it (again!) but also want to give a shoutout to #Auxio.
I listen to music everywhere, including at the gym where I use my Android phone. At 4.7MB Auxio is the epitome of a small, useful, beautifully put-together FLOSS music app. Love it.
News breaks, we podcast. Nate Persily, @alex and I sat down to chat about Meta's Trump account reinstatement. Nate is pragmatic, Alex is cynical, and I'm a naive little formalist.
(I also misuse "beg the question" -- please forgive me!!)
