Re: WebExtensions

A little off topic and very late but I just realise I accidentally posted my reply 3 times. How on earth did that happen?

WebExtensions

Reminds me of how Firefox crippled their extensions and started from scratch with WebExtensions for something more Chrome like.

That being said, it does let them update Firefox without breaking Add-ons.

Re: So, basically, no change there

Droid as in Motorola Droid? Or droid and is Android?

Either way, you should be able to install it. Is it a problem with the Play Store? Try APKmirror if you haven't.

Control

Google: "Users need to have greater control over the data their extensions can access,"

Also Google: "Let's remove user options and control for "security"! Pfffftt. Who needs a permission system? Removing options is working so well on Android. Users don't know anything and options confuse them because opt-in and opt-out defaults don't exist!"

Firefox, Blokada, Bromite, Samsung Internet, the list goes on.

Happy new year, readers. Yes, we have threaded comments, an image-lite mode, and more...

Fingers crossed we get collapsible comments and inline replies!

You're alone in a room with the Windows 10 out-of-the-box apps. What do you do?

Re: A/B testing

That's starting to sound like a nightmare from Google

Apple to devs: Give us notch support or … you don't wanna know

FYI these are some screen to body ratios

iPhone X: 82.9%

Galaxy S9: 83.6%

Galaxy S8: 83.6%

Essential PH-1: 84.9%

I don't think notches are too bad as long as they can be "disabled". I do think they're a compromise either way. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
