My Windows 10 tiling workspace setup

One annoyance I’ve had with Windows after using Manjaro and i3 for a few months last year is that there wasn’t really a good tiling window manager for Windows.

Why I use Firefox as my default browser

Since Firefox 5, I’ve been very vocal about my opposition against anyone using Firefox. Mozilla has definitely dropped the ball multiple times over the last decade, however I must say I am seeing a lot of things I like lately, after using Firefox Developer Edition (currently version 77b3) since April 2019. Here’s the list: Scrolling … Read more

More on Firefox slowdowns

Facebook recently released a new app in the App Store named Facebook Messenger, and of course you can tell what it is by the title.
