Made a quick blog post on #Firefox's Container Tabs extension and how to use it: https://www.andryou.com/2018/04/02/firefox-container-tabs/ #privacy
A must-have browser extension which lets you group sites into "containers". Site cookies are separated by container to prevent sites from tracking you across the web: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/multi-account-containers/ (e.g. I've created a Banking container)
I've been here a little while but never wrote a formal introduction, so here goes!
I've also created a number of bots to mirror content from Twitter to the Fediverse (full list is on my timeline), some are @bbcworld, @cp24, @ttcnotices (the last two will make Mastodon feel like home for fellow Toronto citizens)
#mastodon observation: once posts (with hashtags) are set to anything other than public, the posts are not returned in searches even if the hashtag is specifically searched (due to this I will remove the hashtags from my bots since they're useless)
