So, the fact that my main e-mail client (Mailpile) and my social media (Mastodon) are both browser-based means that I cannot easily open random links coming my way through these channels in a separate cube, using porcupine: micahflee.com/2016/06/qubes-ti

This is less than ideal. Why does everything have to be browser-based these days.

@rysiek Thunderbird? And I personally wouldn't treat my Mastodon VM as pretty sensitive..

@rysiek Everything isn't browser-based. There's just a lot of browser-based stuff. I largely ignore it. There are still plenty of non-browser-based mail clients.

There are also lots of desktop clients for Mastodon.

@rysiek it doesn't. mutt still works great :)

@rysiek Because too many developers are lazy, selfish, and value their own convenience over that of end users.

@impiaaa @Ca_Gi both Social and Tootle look interesting, I'll check them out. Thanks.

@Ca_Gi Electron, Electron, and a webview-based thing. I only have 16GiB of RAM, can't afford to run that many Electron apps.

You're welcome to hang out on IRC and socialise with !xmpp <3

@mmn yeah, I might get back to XMPP, but I still feel it needs to make up its mind about a set of baseline extensions that would be expected to be implemented by any compliant server and client. Currently the support matrix is a mess.

IRC -- yes, that's the next thing I am setting up. :)

@rysiek @mmn After you've set up IRC, set up as a gateway to your instant messenger accounts. There's also a Bitlbee plugin for : wiki.bitlbee.org/HowtoMastodon
