I started using a native client for Telegram, so that allowed me to get rid of one tab in Firefox

It's lean, fast. inuitive. Well done, really

Then I started (again) using ShortWave. A Gnome client for radio stations in synchronous listening

And the Gnome podcast client for podcasts for asynchronous listening

That allows me to use way less Firefox tabs for listening to radio

I'd love to have a native Gnome client for ActivityPub.

On the phone I have Tusky

But I don't like phones, I like PCs because I'm old, by now

And I'd also like a native client for twitter and Instagram admittedly

The web can dry out as far as I am concerned

@AbbieNormal Do you know Tree Style plugin for #Firefox (addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firef) ? It's my favourite plugin:100 of open tabs no problem, and if you pin them a favicon (=> small) appears at the top, I have 12 of them (mastodon is one of them), they take so little space.

@dr0i

I didn' t know this and it's cool indded

But my problem is with the web as a platform

Javascript was already hostile to software freedom (de facto, see the distros problems in packaging npm packages) and now M$ has bought npm

I want native clients

The web was a tool for dislodging M$ from its desktop monopoly

Now it' s a new monopoly (oligopoly) and it's as toxic as they come
