Please put me in charge of Mozilla Corp so that I can [checks notes] kill Mozilla Corp, divert all the dead-end work on Gecko into an engine that's going to be here in 2 years so we can all take on Apple together.

The failings of Safari + WebKit to provide a good web experience are lessened when Firefox is still out there being used by 18 people with high tolerance for garbage experiences.

"Safari isn't THAT bad, I mean look at Firefox..."

In the absence of legislation to force Apple to make a competitive browser, making it obvious how terrible the one they allow you to use is the ONLY answer.

They're not going to allow engine choice, so let's make them so embarrassed by theirs they have to match the other one.

Why do you care what the monkeys in the other camp over there are using for tools?

@mk I develop for the web. I care because Apple's refusal to support the web in any meaningful way means I can't ship things to Apple users, which, in the US, is most users.

But those monkeys are living in some kind of stockholm relationship with their leader and they would believe "your lies" ;-)

Loss aversion

Status quo bias

Sunk cost fallacy

"For example, individuals sometimes order too much food and then over-eat just to 'get their money’s worth'."

@mk I'm saying shaming Apple should be the goal, not shaming Apple users. You're correct that the users are impervious to shame.

@nyquildotorg

This will make apple lose reputation against external users. internal will probably rally behind their leader.

@nyquildotorg

This works long term.

If you want to change something short term, you better be another big tech company and sue your way into change.

just like
- epic vs apple on app-store issues
or
- microsoft and the browser monopol issue
