I love how somehow electron is the lazy way while web apps isn’t, even though electron is just an executable with chromium bundled

What’s the difference to open it in your own browser then?

You don’t have to rely on stupid “app” stores

What do you think about the Gemini protocol?

For those, who do not know what the Gemini protocol is, think of it as a modern, light-weight HTTP alternative without CSS or JavaScript. In layman term, you could see it as Web 1.0 reinvented. It uses GemText instead of HTML. For folks who want to try it out, you can either install a Gemini extension for your HTTPs browser...

This is true when you are in a conflict already and you have something to gain by doing so.

Invading russia is the mother of terrible ideas, not because nukes but it would drag the world into a pointless, even dumber war

Counterpoints:

  • china, Russia and the whole clusterfuck that is Middle East are a thing;
  • The far right is on the rise throughout all of Europe.;

Mozilla downsizes as it refocuses on Firefox and AI: Read the memo | TechCrunch ( techcrunch.com )

Specifically, Mozilla plans to scale back its investment in a number of products, including its VPN, Relay and, somewhat remarkably, its Online Footprint Scrubber, which launched only a week ago. Mozilla will also shut down Hubs, the 3D virtual world it launched back in 2018, and scale back its investment in its mozilla.social...

I wish they would stop bashing at other companies, it is quite a bad look to be fair

I've recently turned 20. What highly specific advice you, lemmy users, would offer me?

A lot of people answering this struggle to understand what highly-specific means. I'm looking to, for the sake of experiment, highly-specific advice that gives a reader clear understanding of what they should do. Unlike the vague advice, on the contrary, that may be too abstract to get implementing it right away....

I’m surprised life satisfaction is so high in Italy tbf

nitefox , (edited )
@nitefox@sh.itjust.works avatar

What do you mean? Wages are terrible and services too but it costs as much as Belgium and France, with a fraction of the salary. People often blame high taxes but in Belgium they are much higher and the country is as big as Sicily or Sardinia

Working in Italy is painful: you have to work for 9 hours a day since break is not counted in a workday, most companies are so small you have virtually no benefits and the family-like governance is terrible, and for a lot of companies you are expected to do overtime. If you work in restoration it’s even worse.

Italy is good/decent only for tourists and elders, but since most of the costs for younger people are paid by their parents it seems better than it actually is.

To add a fun fact: a friend of mine is very proud to earn 1.4k a month with lots of straordinaries and the liquidation pay (no thirtieth month)

I'm from a non-english country and some of my coworkers don't speak English at all, so... no. That said, it's very inconvenient and they use the google translator all the time (which is shit, told them to use deepl at least).

Anyhow, there are programming languages that aren't English based: I don't remember the names but, for example, there is one that uses Latin

not wanting to work isn’t “being lazy”, you can do all sort of stuff if you didn’t have to waste 8 hours a day for stupid corporate crap (so that others will not need to work)

@nitefox@sh.itjust.works avatar

I agree wholeheartedly with you!

nitefox ,
@nitefox@sh.itjust.works avatar

I agree with you. I don’t want to work, but I have to so I do. That doesn’t mean I don’t dream of a time where we won’t have to work anymore [for pointless, shitty, greedy stuff]

Then the question is, how many Linux users are off X. If they use proton I guess they care about privacy, which means they are more likely not to be on a capitalist social - more so one ran by Musk: the percentage of Linux users using proton products may be even higher.

Nice! Can’t wait for them to make their proton calendar app good

That snippet of code is browser agnostic, which means you have the same problem on chrome lol

Fair enough. I stopped using chrome a looong time ago so no problem anyway

I’m going to paste a reply I got in regards to Brave and why you should change to a different browser

just let people do whatever they want, wtf is wrong with you people

It’s still better than using Google / Edge, and it’s basically the only good chromium alternative to the aforementioned browsers - reminder that stock chromium is not good.

Beside, you forgot the most important point: they further the chromium monopoly, which while the engine is open source its codebase is too big so it is basically controlled by google

Nitpicks:

Brave is an advertising company, that blocks everyone, but them. Forcing over people and companies into their system.

You can disable all the ads.

They’re heavily in the blockchain ecosystem, with their own worthless crypto.

Depending on whom you ask, it’s a pro or a cons.

Brave, and its CEO is right-wing, lobbying against things like same-sex marriage.

See above.

nitefox ,
@nitefox@sh.itjust.works avatar

You “suggested” a browser change + mass downvote just for using brave, lol

if you think opposing […]

I don’t, but I don’t see how using a free browser, more so disabling the ads, you support that person or the idea

Like, I could see a point if you paid anything for it (see: Rowling) but for brave you pay nothing so

nitefox ,
@nitefox@sh.itjust.works avatar

It is still closed source nonetheless, which is a bit of a gimmick since nobody sane enough could read through most of a browser codebase anyway.

According to this website it is less private than Brave by default, more or less like Firefox

That said, I didn’t consider it before but I’ll definitely check it out later

Won’t that risk to actually start the recession though?

But they will earn less money, won’t they?

nitefox ,
@nitefox@sh.itjust.works avatar

Yeah but if you enter a recession, your earnings will be much less. Even if you fire most of your staff, you won’t earn shit anyway.

So causing a recession seems like a very dumb idea

If you can tell me the connection between a game engine and game design I will happily answer

nitefox ,
@nitefox@sh.itjust.works avatar

which clearly isn’t what the comment was about, so instead of filling your mouth with “gAmE eNgInE” feeling the smart person ever just shut up

I liked gamers better when they didn’t throw around game dev terms thinking they knew anything at all

nitefox ,
@nitefox@sh.itjust.works avatar

People love to feel smart throwing terms around, I guess
