It’s Time to Rebrand ‘Cookies’
nextdoor toxic politics
Nextdoor is the home of reactionary local politics. I deleted my account when I was censored for calling out homeowners organizing against tenants' rights in Santa Cruz. Now the site is a hub for All Lives Matter
Inside Nextdoor’s ‘Karen problem’ - The Verge
this is rad. I could see some really cool wildlife observation and astrophotography projects making use of this https://www.theverge.com/2020/4/30/21242454/raspberry-pi-high-quality-camera-announced-specs-price
also no firefox custom tabs it appears? no ability to push links to bookmarks or other devices from the Android share sheet like we used to be able to do. so many regressions :/
unfortunately it is a true beta. lacks support for all addons except unlock. sync is not working right. and the new share sheet they've designed is a mess. no tablet UI. so I'll continue to wait to make it my daily driver :/
I have found that Fedilab has become more unstable lately. So I'm trying out Subway Tooter, which I've used for a while on my tablet. it is an obscure, strange UI but pretty much bulletproof in terms of stability. what are you guys using for Mastodon on #android? has tusky fixed the issue where it disregarded my mutes and blocks?
huzzah! fewer shitty recaptchas on the web treating us firefox users like second class citizens! https://www.zdnet.com/article/cloudflare-dumps-recaptcha-as-google-intends-to-charge-for-its-use/
very sleazy move from all those involved. a lot of indie devs will get screwed over by closing the weather API
this was designed for birdsite but apparently works for mastodon too https://zero.brizzly.com/
A song to dance to by yourself in a highly exaggerated, embarrassing manner while making the bed
