"Google wants to kill the URL"


"People have a really hard time understanding URLs" is not a good enough reason to get rid of URLs

To this day, I refuse to use an AMP specific webpage as it breaks the open web. When I'm presented with an AMP link, I edit the URL to remove that component so I get the full page. "Safe" URLs will similarly cater to Google interests and I will not be using it

If other vendors go along with this, I'll write my own browser if I have to

We are proud to announce after six months of hard work by everyone at @gnome - GNOME 3.30 - Almería! You can check our release notes out at help.gnome.org/misc/release-no Thank you everyone for your support and hard work. We appreciate you!

Our new Android app liberates you from using Google services. ✊ Read here how we managed to replace Google's push notification service & to publish the app on @fdroidorg 👉 f-droid.org/en/2018/09/03/repl

Wow. Good job #Fediverse. No, seriously, good job! **slow clap**


Many on here make themselves out to be accepting and open to new people. Yet Wil Wheaton gets so much abuse, he was forced off the platform.

Like I said, great work folks. ☹️

More people should have their own instance. Let me know if you want help setting one up

Strani accostamenti vicino al porto di Vasto...

I really like #OSMAnd but oh boy, #Maps (f-droid.org/en/packages/com.gi) is really, really fast and slick. Both in rendering and navigation.

Not quite as featureful as OSMAnd though, I'll probably use both in the future.

(Update coming to your local @fdroidorg repo soon)

It'd be great if you could switch instances but take all your toots, follows and followers with you. I'd more inclined to move to another instance to lessen the server load on this main one if I didn't have to start over.

For all those having panickily migrated their projects from #Github to #GitLab to get away from MS: GitLab just started the process of migrating to the Google cloud (GCP). Which means it won't be available in some countries (Crimea, Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, and Syria) anymore because of "legal restrictions", as #Google informed them. Hopefully none of the migrators lives in any of them: migration is running already, no access possible anymore.

Congrats! 😒


"NOTE to users in Crimea, Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, and Syria: GitLab.com may not be accessible after the migration to #Google" - Really #Gitlab, you are moving to a platform which will cut off access for people in all this countries? about.gitlab.com/2018/07/19/gc

We're excited to let you know that we've update our new client and our new Android beta app! Now you can search in the app, use multi-select, and, most importantly: The app is now ready for @fdroidorg 😀

@aral The biggest strength of Nextcloud is that you don't have to trust anyone if you don't want to. Just run your Nextcloud in your basement, on your own NAS, in your organization...

We are pleased to receive a $400K pledge from Handshake.org ! $300K has been pledged to GNOME and an additional $100K has been earmarked for the @GIMP_Official. We are deeply thankful to @HNS for their donation to the GNOME Foundation! gnome.org/news/2018/08/gnome-f
