* 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?

if we always think about backward compatibility, we will be made eternal. slaves of the tech giants. better do something new and better.

... each they trust, all existing, their hosting provider, the cloud provider that their hosting provider resell and obviously each employees of all of these corporations (most of which headed in the ).
Oh... and you have to trust who wrote the and the machine (which is actually under your responsibility).

Now you surely know this, but if you connect the dots you see how a could be customized by a CDN for you


@grainloom @mmu_man
i certainly know all that. i was just suggesting to play around new scripting engines, new concepts of browsers, even new concepts of protocols. i didn't mean to solve actual problems with browsers as we have or operating systems at large. we are talking about different things here.

@grainloom @mmu_man @alcinnz
wow.. wish you luck in the efforts. i will keep an eye on both.
