There's a new "experimental feature" being tested in Firefox 83: sponsored sites in the URL bar.

"Mozilla works with advertising partners to place sponsored tiles on the Firefox home page (or New Tab) that would be useful to Firefox users. Mozilla is paid when users click on sponsored tiles."


You can disable this by setting `browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.showSponsoredTopSites` to `false`.

@sir Medium, where posts aren't rare but they also are not well done.

We think were the smartest generation. But 50 years ago, car manuals explained how to adjust valves. Now they explain why you shouldn't drink the contents of the battery.

Done a naughty thing in Gemini. Using the quote identifier > but suffixing it with i, !, or ? allows me to style those differently when viewed on the web. Doesn't seem to screw up Gemini clients though so it's all OK. Come at me
