@jorin* 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?
@grainloomif we always think about backward compatibility, we will be made eternal. slaves of the tech giants. better do something new and better. @mmu_man @jorin @mozilla @Shamar
@Shamar @hansbauer @grainloom @jorin @mozilla Haiku is a little larger but still not as huge as GNU/Linux :p
@mmu_man@Shamar @grainloom haiku is doing great. let's see how it will evolve.

@Shamar @hansbauer @grainloom Haiku at least is usable, unlike GNU/HURD :D
