I wanted a browser independent solution for @Nextclouders@twitter.com Bookmarks so I created github.com/richardklose/nextcl

🔖 Access your Nextcloud Bookmarks from the menu bar.
🌍 Opens your default browser, so it still works when you switch.

Mastodon is an open source decentralised alternative to Twitter! I've made a Mapstodon #OpenStreetMap instance!

"However, for security critical software, just being Free Software is not enough. It is very easy to install a backdoor before compiling the source code into a binary file. This backdoor would of course not be part of the published source code, but it would be part of the file that gets released to the public."

So if you didn't have Free Software at all, you wouldn't have the problem of "software not being reproducible".
No source code, no worries.

Die wirklich hochsommerliche Hitze komme im Laufe der nächsten Woche, etwa ab Dienstag oder Mittwoch. Dann ändere sich die Strömung der Luft. Norddeutschland werde "abgeschnürrt vom Atlantikwetter".

Let's make the Web free again, support open standards/protocols and decentralize everything.
