The overuse of hamburger menus (or overflow menus) is still the worst and Firefox has essentially two (three if you count the overflow menu in the URL bar). Two vague icons in the toolbar that both serve as to represent menus that are catch-alls for a bunch of things.
How everyone got away with the hamburger is beyond me. It's not simplification of the UI it's complication. Simplification would be paring down unnecessary function so you have no need for overflow menus.
If you're using Linux and engaged in development processes or on IRC channels and are familiar with the names of things and what different distros (or even what "distros" are) are and the nuances between desktop environments, then I'm definitely not designing anything with you in mind. You're already here.
I still see the occasional person on Twitter say that Mastodon will never "succeed", but I wouldn't call what Twitter has "success". Mastodon is good ol' community building.
We don't want to be exhausted by brands and promotion, nor have the platform continue to be unethically designed and lack any backbone for moderation. Federation spreads out the moderation task and the lack of brands and promotional nonsense is good. We can just follow and talk with others which is all people really need.
