I've been struggling with a post about Safari for a while, but this really hits for me: daverupert.com/2021/07/safari- The missing features are bad, but the broken APIs and weird deviations from everyone else are way worse.

Nice summary on some web/browser technologies and why they work the way they do:

„Web Features That May Not Work As You’d Expect“

Full phone number database of #Clubhouse is up for sale on the #Darknet. It contains 3.8 billion phone numbers. These are not just members but also people in contact lists that were synced. Chances are high that you are listed even if you haven't had a Clubhouse login.

Can you imagine if Google, in the early 2000s, had said "Hey webmasters! We'd love to include your website in our search results. But first, you need to bundle up a zip file containing a link to your URL, and then send it to us. Also, update it whenever your website updates. Our index only contains websites that have done this. We're definitely going to beat AltaVista now!"

Cool, Microsoft is making it so you can install PWAs from the browser. The install flow is really slick – it actually uses the Store to install the app, so you can see the rating and reviews before installing. blogs.windows.com/windowsexper

Looks like you still need to use PWABuilder to submit your PWAs to the store, but hey, baby steps.

New JavaScript syntax 

ES2021 was just approved and is finally, FINALLY shipping with String.prototype.replaceAll. So

'falafel'.replace(/l/g,'b')
'falafel'.replaceAll('l','b')

both give you `fabafeb`.

No more regex needed just to get the "greedy" flag in there!

Die Hohepriester der Maschine, "Entwickler" genannt, praktizierten eine regelmäßige Meditation bei der sie ihre Arbeit minutenlang unterbrachen um für ein Ergebnis der Maschine zu beten. Diesen Vorgang nannten sie "kompilieren".

#TIL The #Brainfuck programming language has a dialect called "I use Arch, btw". In this dialect, the original symbols are replaced with "I", "use", "arch", "linux", "btw", "by", "the", "way". #Arch #ArchLinux

This is a "Hello World!" example:

arch the i the use linux the way i arch the i arch arch arch i the arch arch arch arch arch arch arch arch arch arch arch i way the i way linux the use way i linux way way arch arch arch arch arch arch arch arch arch arch use way i i i i i i linux linux linux linux btw use use arch arch arch btw use linux btw btw arch arch arch btw use linux btw i i i btw use use btw arch arch arch btw linux linux linux linux linux linux btw i linux btw use use arch btw use btw

By the way, I actually don't mind cloud services in general. The idea of outsourcing services is almost as old as humanity.

There is nothing wrong with switching from a self-hosted postgresql to a hosted version. Or to host your website on a web space.

But to act as if cloud providers would ride on unicorns and do the impossible, is just utter nonsense.

And looking at IPv6 on major cloud providers make one question the competence of the expert teams…

Selbstfahrendes #Fahrrad#Prototyp aus #China

Dieses #Bike braucht keinen Fahrer

Selbstfahrende Autos kennt man nun schon länger – aber #selbstfahrend⁣e #Fahrräder? Dass sich das grundsätzlich in die Realität umsetzen ließe, hat jetzt der chinesische Erfinder Peng Zhihui bewiesen. Und das sieht in Aktion⁽¹⁾ nicht nur sehr ungewohnt, sondern auch etwas gruselig aus …

Nutzt ihr Tools von Firmen, die euren Moral- oder Wertevorstellungen nicht entsprechen? Kann man überhaupt darauf verzichten und alternativen nutzen? Darüber sprechen wir in der neuen Folge. Und wie wir unsere Eier am Morgen mögen. Hört rein ;)

@pixelfed Hi there! As a #blind screen reader user, I would really appreciate it if you'd take the time to #captionyourimages as it would really help with #accessibility
And it's not just people like me who appreciate them either, it's users on low bandwidth or metered connections who don't want to load the full res picture, those with #autism who sometimes find the context helpful, the huge percentage of those with preexisting visual impairments [#VI] which includes many people over 55 ETC.
It doesn't have to be anything incredibly detailed or artfully written, but something is nearly always better than nothing. I believe that their is even an option to automatically #OCR images now which should give you a head start.
