Serious question for the /#DecentralizedWeb.

Lemme do a longer .

I'm a software developer. I also like to cook, dance (hip-hop largely, step), read, write, TV crunch and be outdoorsy. I'm a lot ;). I <3 my dog!

Honey: Pour t'améliorer il va falloir que tu commences à parler en français.

Me: *screams*

this is more success than I expected, lol. this is loading not knowing what kind of 'service' is underneath. I'm working to have parity with microsub/micropub systems as well as mastodon

is all of GNOME like this? this looks really nice!

I'm kinda tempted to install it side-by-side with KDE on here just to check it out

wait it was in the wrong place (for me - everything is on the left side; left handed)

granted, not having a directly accessible menu is very jarring and no direct window controls is trippy


I'm using GNOME Builder...

This shit is nice

A lot of the F/LOSS browsers use Chromium (if not all)

I wonder if one could use Firefox's Web engine to build a Web browser.
