Mozilla Foundation: "Firefox is the protector of the open web ๐Ÿ’ช "

Mozilla Corporation: "Let's spend over a decade pissing all the Google search money up the wall, annoy Firefox users with monetised features they didn't ask for, and give ourselves generous bonuses for doing both of those things ๐Ÿค‘"

Mozilla Foundation in 2021: "Right... we're still defending 3.8% of the web. That's something, I guess? ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ "

Some people claim that instance-blocking weakens the fediverse, and undermines the point of federation.

This is the opposite of the truth.

The point of federation is that it limits the accumulation of power: no single instance can control fedi, because users can always switch instances without leaving fedi.

This is why fedi and fascism are fundamentally opposed -- and why the ability to block fascist/abusive instances is the very heart of federation's power to serve its users.

I hope they get the UX right, and chromium's minimalistic home page design works well. figma.com/file/B2HHiX8QEmqRl4s

Make your Chromium based browser fly! (Specialty on Linux)

1- go to chrome://flags
2- search for Vulkan and Enable it
3- Relaunch the browser

That's a lot of effort just to use spyware
