New version of Firefox Beta rolled out on Android. Biggest feature: more whitelisted add-ons. I'll be getting Privacy Badger even if mostly to strip tracking tokens from URLs (Fx has built-in tracking protection). Redirecting AWAY from AMP is the last important feature I want.

The biggest let-down is Fedora vs Ubuntu. Hopefully the open source patches and what not so other distros can run with it at near maximal support.

`traverse liftEffect do ...` I still don't quite understand, but the adage is: when in doubt, traverse.

Fire Code is bad and hard to read. Everyone wants fancy symbols. Well cool languages like Agda, PureScript, & Haskell let you actually use the unicod symbols. The ambiguity between what you see vs. what's actually there disappears; what you see is what you get.
