This captures why I've largely lost interest in developing for the web: It feels like any work I put into it is furthering Google's agenda, similar to how making iOS apps is furthering Apple's.

Working on native GTK apps, on the other hand, feels like I'm helping create a credible ethical alternative to those agendas.

@tbernard I couldn’t agree more! I’m also very excited about technologies that allow to synchronise devices locally (e.g. Computer and phone)

Why would I need a server to synchronise which podcast I read, or how many pages I read in my ebook?

If it sounds like Bonsai, that’s because it’s exactly what I have in mind


@thibaultamartin @tbernard what's Bonsai? it's pretty hard to websearch for it.
