EFF’s browser extension HTTPS Everywhere just got even better! We’ve partnered with DuckDuckGo to incorporate its Smarter Encryption rulesets into HTTPSE, giving users greater coverage for connecting to safer, encrypted versions of the websites they visit.

I've been on my first GNU/Linux distro for almost 3 months now. I picked Linux Mint (and I am okay with my choice, but I do think about how Manjaro as a first distro would be like), but now I have the need to switch to a different distribution, especially something rolling release.
I do not care about choosing every package that my system will have; I am fine with a little bit of software not being used on my system (This makes the incoming list preferred over Arch Linux). I care about an user distributed package manager (?) being there, such as AUR. I care about installs supporting a Window Manager such as i3. I care about my system not breaking due to an update on the OS (I have heard that this kind of stuff happens on Arch Linux, and that for this reason Manjaro filters the Arch Linux updates and gives a more stable experience (I also heard that they just delay the updates and call it stability).). So with these in mind, I have these distros and Arch Linux installers to choose from:
1- Manjaro
2- ArcoLinux
3- Garuda Linux
4- Endeavour OS
5- Anarchy Linux
I would highly appreciate any suggestion / discussion!

I have noticed that toots are being boosted a lot more than being favourited on Mastodon. I've seen toots with 19 boosts but 0 favourites. Why is that? This contradicts the majority of other social media platforms where people usually like or react but rarely share or repost.

one more time for the people in the back.

until end users have un-gated full control over their software, commit access = domination over end users.

3rd party dependencies = giving strangers domination over end users.

Question, what would happen to a boost if the instance that the boosted toot is in goes down?

Boom! There goes my very first toot. Oh wait, the max character count isn't 280, but rather 2^16? I would love to take advantage of that in my first toot. I guess I can celebrate Pi Day, even though I am 1 day late (2 days even, for a few countries), so happy late Pi Day! I am also considering to open Diaspora*, Friendica and PixelFed accounts, but who knows? Look at that! Until the incoming comma character, (<-- that one behind the parenthesis!) I have already used 411 characters. Neat!
