Cool fact about Linux: I can still test three different browser engines: Blink (via Chrome), Gecko (via Firefox), and WebKit (via Epiphany Browser). There are subtle differences between Epiphany and Safari (no Web Payments, no Service Worker, no -webkit-backdrop-filter, etc.) but it's pretty close.

That's pretty good desktop coverage, and I can debug Chrome and Firefox on Android using ADB, as well as Safari on iOS using github.com/RemoteDebug/remoted. Linux is not bad for web development.

TFW unsafe Rust calling C functions makes a better job of type checking than a C compiler.

I just realized Android Studio considers it OK to unpack multi-GB files into /tmp because /tmp is not mounted from tmpfs on :ubuntu:

Most of the calls to libxml2 are done from now. All the loading code will be in Rust soon.
