One of my work mates has been implementing support for extensions to #GNOME Web (a.k.a. Epiphany): blog.tingping.se/2022/06/29/We

This has been made possible because at #Igalia we want more of us to dogfood a WebKit-based browser, and the number one complaint was “but, I miss extension $XYZ”. Luckily, being an owner-based coop we can *choose* ourselves to invest time in things like these :pika:

Request for input from blind programmers 

Saw a tweet saying that tabs work better than spaces when you're using a braille display

Seems logical, but this information doesn't seem to be coming from a blind person, so I thought I'd check

Which form of #Python indentation is more accessible to you?

(sighted people: don't vote, be patient)

Let me make something clear: VPNs do not remove the trust you place in your ISP. They shift that trust to the VPN provider!

Which can be a useful thing, and probably is where I'm seeing VPNs getting recommended right now...

The types of Plugins I support in my browser engines:

1. Regexp-based autoredirection & blocking extensions
* I'll preinstall a Farside.Link extension for damage-control.
2. Alternate/additional CSS stylesheets
3. Lua sandboxed CGI-like locally-dynamic pages.
* How I'd implement Rhapsode's auditory chrome.

The 3rd is useful mostly only in Rhapsode, where they'd be triggered via voice commands.

I wonder if others are interested in writing such addons? Or building a discovery site?

Wife generated content- music opinion 

Classical music with a modern drummer is one of my favorite types of internet music. It makes 1700s music sound like a hair metal band, and delights me to no end.

I ask because I suspect there are some solid answers.

To all the JVM users out there, other than momentum/ecosystem, what is the primary elevator pitch for doing JVM-based webdev in 2022? What does the JVM give us compared to Node, PHP, or Python?

From Twitter: Your annual reminder that #react-select is not accessible to screen reader users and does not follow the ARIA specification for custom controls.

This library is the reason for many #a11y blocker issues on the web. It affects us all.
