• the pathbar
• username, hostname and git branch displayed in the UI, shrinking the shell prompt back to just a $
• commands as cards
• syntax highlighting, including graying out the output a bit to differentiate it from commands themselves
• autocompletion (displayed in a native widget)
• built-in error handling options
• the time each command took (on the right)

If you haven’t heard about it already, an all new beautiful iOS Mastodon app is now available on the App Store. 🎉

Suggestion for Mastodon (to prevent eventual gMastodon instance): cap instance size at 100 - 1,000 account by default. Make it a social contract for instances not to federate with instances greater than that limit.

That said, we might already be on that path.

The latest version of #Chrome doesn't delete Google cookies even when you ask it to delete all cookies:

It also does some dodgy stuff with logging people into Google:

Chrome is made by Google, who make vast amounts of money from invading people's privacy.

What happens when the jerks & MRAs leave your project? Good people who were driven away by those cretins start to show.

There are MANY more good people repelled by these idiots than there are idiots.

Assholes are not valuable. You'll get more done, produce better work, and have more fun without them.
