Do you log into sites all the time then? Having containers on mobile would help for this. On my desktop, I use containers in Firefox and also a separate browser (Epiphany) that can save different sites as apps, each with their isolated cookies and such.

My *default* browser in my phone throws away all cookies, history, and more. My main browser doesn't though. (I should set it to time-bomb the history and cookies more frequently.) It does, however, reject third party cookies, block trackers, etc.

Yeah, I periodically go through my history and convert a bunch to bookmarks, then wipe the history. But still, something about syncing seems to freeze up Fenix's first page load. I'm assuming it's bookmarks/history, as that seems like the most obvious thing.

Oops, I meant toolbox. (Sorry, late at night here and I called it the wrong thing. 😁) There's also a "toolbox run" now, so you can even run commands from inside the toolbox from outside. (You could even alias it.)

In case it needs repeating, the climate emergency is caused by the world’s richest and most powerful, exacerbated by a lifestyle that has become normalised among middle classes in the global north, & mostly felt by those who have no control over the crisis

Try out toolkit on traditional Fedora. It makes containers painless & useful. You can have different versions of Fedora side-by-side & different containers for development. And they are all persistent, have access to your home dir, let you dnf install, & even use graphical apps.

Exactly! (I should probably get more involved somehow. But I don't want yet more weekly meetings, subscribed to more making lists, or to be roped into maintaining websites again. …However, I'm happy to consult.)

For Silverblue to succeed, it needs: - a wider audience (not just developers) - better messaging (focusing on benefits) - improved documentation - flawless installer (it's a little flaky in some circumstances — especially for dual boot) - awareness - even more apps Flatpak'd

My experience with Silverblue so far has been: old laptop I used as a test, Atomic Workstation when it existed, and reinstalling my main work laptop with Silverblue today. (And, of course, using docker, buildah, podman, toolkit, & Flatpaks on my traditional Fedora installation.)

Yep. Agreed. (I ran out of characters and continued with some of the benefits.) The Silverblue & CoreOS websites would be the best place to explain it all, not Twitter. But here it is, the weekend, I'm not maintaining the sites, and we're on Twitter, so… 😁

A lot of this stuff isn't actually developer specific. Some of it is, obviously. But a quite a bit isn't. The messaging is very bad for Silverblue and CoreOS. Many of the benefits apply to both. Containers are a part of the story, but they really shouldn't be the focus.

The benefits of the above points (Silverblue, continued): - better security & stability, as nothing can mess with the OS - more predictable; less "doesn't work here" custom randomness - updates in the background - rollbacks and new versions of Fedora are as simple as rebooting

The big deals about Silverblue: - everyone runs the same read-only base OS - base OS can be easily swapped out ("rebased"); this includes (even major) updates or rolling back - containers, VMs, and apps in Flatpak sit on top and don't mess with the base system

I’ve started telling JS devs that semantic html elements are preloaded microframeworks that ship you accessibility and performance plugins.

I've had Qt do this before on my personal laptop. Sometimes it works the other way and things are too small, depending on the app or screen. I know this can be fixed with an environmental variable in /etc/profile... but have no clue how this would be fixed for a Flatpak'd app.

I just installed the Scribus Flatpak on a my freshly installed Silverblue laptop and it's fine here. My laptop is normal DPI and so is the external monitor too. Is your computer (or screen) HiDPI?

New Firefox is overall great. However: 1. I miss extensions 2. syncing with a lot of history & bookmarks makes it super slow to start 3. self-signed certs aren't supported Those are the 3 deal breakers for me. 😔 Looking forward to when these are fixed! 👍
