On the Edge team, we had a *whole team* dedicated to finding compat bugs, reducing them, and reaching out to site owners with fixes. Sometimes we would reach out to a site owner and they'd say, "Sorry, you don't have enough market share for us to bother fixing this bug."

This is where we get -webkit prefixed CSS in the standard, as well as de-facto standards and "works best in Chrome." This is why both Opera and Edge switched to Chromium.

If you really want to help Firefox succeed, file a bug on webcompat.com/ when you find a broken website. Don't just switch back to Chrome; let Mozilla know there's a problem so they can try to fix it.

When browsers lose market share, they fall into the "compatibility death spiral." Sites don't bother to test, they break, and users flee to the browser that "just works." Mozilla is fighting this battle every day, and it just got harder.

I love the usage I see of one of the four links you can include for your Mastodon profile to be for your pronouns.

So, I moved the pronouns from my bio description to one of these dedicated links. :)

Looks great, hard to miss!

While we're aware that it's a meme, please don't post "shut up, Wesley" to @wilw . It constitutes harassment and we'll handle it accordingly.

game question:

Is there a game that allows voice chat (not just text) and is NOT a shoot-em-up death game.

11year old is not playing fortnight just because he can 'talk' to his friends... (I'm sure their families have no clue what the game is)

any suggestions of other games will be very welcomed!

(please boost)
