btw, for anyone else that had used Mozilla Firefox for a ridiculously long time before its decline, check out "Pale Moon".
It forked before they switched to the WebExtensions framework, and it's a real nostalgia trip. 🤓
(Seriously, I let out little shrieks of joy when I noticed they still had Ambassador, FoxClocks & Live Bookmarks. That was a fun experiment)
@sanspoint Round these Fediverse parts, I think most people would agree with that.
controversial technology opinion
Mozilla Foundation: "Firefox is the protector of the open web 💪 "
Mozilla Corporation: "Let's spend over a decade pissing all the Google search money up the wall, annoy Firefox users with monetised features they didn't ask for, and give ourselves generous bonuses for doing both of those things 🤑"
Mozilla Foundation in 2021: "Right... we're still defending 3.8% of the web. That's something, I guess? 🤷♂️ "
Mastodon uses the same technical standards as many other alternative social networks, so people on one network can follow people on others. This "network of networks" is called the Fediverse
✅ You can follow people from other parts of the Fediverse just like you would follow any Mastodon account!
Try it out for yourself:
@jett1oeil is an account on Instagram alternative PixelFed
@chriswere is an account on YouTube alternative PeerTube
@Matthieu Snopyta.org is a pretty cool place for XMPP (and other FOSSy things).
The XMPP Standards Foundation develops the XMPP/Jabber instant messaging and voice/video calling standards. You can follow them at:
The official site is https://xmpp.org
It's a free open standard, so anyone can use it in their software and hardware.

Snikket is a new XMPP/Jabber-based decentralised FOSS messenger service. You can follow at:
The official website is https://snikket.org
It aims to make XMPP into a more viable alternative to Whatsapp etc by providing consistency in design and terminology.
(It's sort of how Mastodon made ActivityPub more mainstream, by using consistency to make it clear the instances are part of one network.)
