@dustin Also: his argument is stupid and, in a way, circular.
"What if we had a body..." Like W3C and WHATWG?
"Mozilla is pushing their own standards," ... Like Google and Apple and Microsoft did/do?
"What if Mozilla contributed to Chromium/WebKit?"
Well then you'd have competing implementations and forks of WebKit. Or Google just saying "No" to everything that didn't originate with them and eating more market share.
This was sent to me from Birdsite: https://twitter.com/auchenberg/status/1088587621721231361
It's amazing after I, myself, spent a lot of time and effort to evangelize for the open Web to see some asshole who apparently was part of tearing down Edge to call for the destruction of Mozilla.
I really should tell people to not send me anything from Birdsite. I left there for a reason.
I just wanted underlines on links on Mastodon, not to write a damn thesis. At least clients *want* your advice. https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/pull/9898
Stop and think for a moment.
This place isn't owned by a corporation.
We are all hanging out in a place free of corporate bs, invasive advertising and toxic unwillingness to tackle moderation in a mature way.
Your feed is chronological, there is no engagement manipulation of post visibility.
Yet that isn't exactly why you opened up mastodon/pleroma right this minute is it?
You are checking up on the fediverse because it is a chill place to be and also all those things.
How cool is that?
Whenever a web browser, operating system, or web site gains dominance among users, it stops being cool and starts becomes blatantly abusive.
This Chromium nonsense is just more of what we saw from Internet Explorer.
Every generation of geeks learns this anew, and acts all shocked. Learn some history, folks. Learn from those who came before.
Stop supporting only one platform. Variety is ESSENTIAL. Monocultures are death. #sysadmin

So ... this seems bad ...
guess which all-powerful tech monopoly is breaking ublock origin (and umatrix, and likely many other similar add-ons, such as noscript) in their browser, which happens to be the most popular browser in the world?
who could have foreseen this? who would ever think that an advertising company's web browser would end up breaking compatibility with an ad blocker? frankly i'm shocked
Now this is a cold war I can get behind.
