uscislbt1mo
decision was based on privacy control
wragrnqq1mo
but i do find chrome to still feel more light weight and a better UX
lnayrxtu1mo
vast majority of users may be naive above googles control over your data or simply dont care
rxovbvttkzigr1mo
I develop in Chrome but life in Firefox
crnnivzapkbyc1mo
Works out pretty well
lugwptdf1mo
I live in safari, I develop in safari, I die in safari
cpmqwrbrjomkm1mo
What are you some kind of animal
kettucdk1mo
I mean I develop in safari and safari is my main browser also
ciextqdz1mo
but why
ampnkwwe1mo
I guess it makes sense to pick up compatibility issues
uzmrfkyd1mo
To me, chrome is the IE of browsers, I always have to check it to make sure it didnโ€™t break things
tvyvjtau1mo
safari is the new ie
vblrszxa1mo
Only if itโ€™s not your main browser
onoghedd1mo
Safari uses way less battery for me
dujmhwlk1mo
Itโ€™s nice to get an extra couple hours out of the battery life
lnnhbxim1mo
I switched from Firefox a couple months ago when JavaScript stopped working. I googled and it was a known problem. I had used it for years and finally had to switch solely due to that reason
rluurrlmoeuwn1mo
Wait what how
aiznezydbmkgu1mo
Do you have the ticket # still?
bzkixlon1mo
Me? Let me see if I can find it. It was in dec/Jan when I finally gave up and decided to move on after a prolonged period of mourning
tfdgplvqldzgp1mo
I can't fix it for you, I just find it hard to believe
loiypdzpwcoeb1mo
Would be very curious to know more about that bug
imhvyehb1mo
Ok, looking at my browsing history to try and remember exactly what it wasโ€ฆ
kvtysldl1mo
Just tested it again with Facebook. Still happening. Blank page other than the top bar. (Affects more than FB but itโ€™s a good test)
ihpsbiwd1mo
Is October-dec when the drop off in users started happening?
hebwcedhbzzoc1mo
Not sure. And the workaround doesn't work for you? Have you tried a more recent release?
qfnbehslmczjp1mo
Interesting that I never heard about that, seems pretty serious
noonbooy1mo
I get very attached to my browser, so I tried anything that seemed a reasonable amount of effort. Another data point, that diagnostic site FF provides says everything is fine when I visit it but sites still donโ€™t work. I switched to Chrome to give Google even more data about me and my habits ๐Ÿ™„
zhdshotd1mo
But the problem I had/am having is exactly as theyโ€™ve described
ftnapi1mo
i've never stopped using firefox because of #principles even though it has worked like shit for years
zpv1mo
Same, i prefer safari but sometimes also develop withc rome
zcfqzpmgdurcf1mo
It works great for me
pfuwnzkjdyhir1mo
Like really good
miuqtaioypvnd1mo
idk
vrghmtodwburg1mo
I have reasonably high end machines
ytovtuji1mo
๐Ÿคจ I should add the issue I posted about above happened in dec after I bought a brand new MacBook Pro
hkelgjrmpchqv1mo
Sure, that's definitely not a performance thing
aivqaxjeyrfxh1mo
Just adding my own experience
unubcprtgsgxt1mo
I switched from Chrome to Edge and Firefox
ulyddwfozglug1mo
Maybe I should check on its telemetry though... (Note this study is using the default settings)

tvezpyquil29d
Using Safari, I can seek passed commercials using Apple touch bar
efvnund19d
workona is now also available on FireFox (โ€ฆand Edge)

uddwbk11d
how my day starts "Ok, today I'm gonna read through all these tabs and get rid of them!" # of tabs 17
bctuul11d
how my day ends "wheew that was a productive day!" # of tabs 32671
nxgnykmj11d
what do you folks think are the main components to having an incredibly productive hour? or day?
axrhsnke11d
i'm thinking along the lines of 1) having a clear goal/objective 2) having stable energy levels .. 3) etc
waqaqiig11d
what are your thoughts?
rmuaqjqhz11d
Having context helps. For me having a really productive hour can take a couple hours of reading / gathering context if Iโ€™m starting on a problem/task fresh. I donโ€™t really consider the gathering of context as โ€œproductiveโ€ though but maybe some do. Depending on what Iโ€™m working on though that context can stay fresh and make for a really productive week
riodynkfvzolj11d
Enough sleep, and a long block of distraction-free meditative time (not working) at the start of it.
quaikylxlgwms11d
Basically everything else in life must be cleared away first, and then creative work happens naturally.
faxbxomuebrxr11d
Or in the case of many days, doesn't
dyiiaadixj11d
I did a video call with some girls yesterday. We did pomodoro together. First we talked about what we were gonna work on. Worked for 50mins. 15min break. Repeat
dbvbqm11d
definitely having a clear goal broken down into smaller tasks, feel that the task is important/urgent, and not to have other important things in my head (i.e i better remember to go shopping today or shit like that)
mbetwjjb11d
Screenhero is back! Born again as screen.so/ (multiplayer screensharing where you can type and draw on everyoneโ€™s screen)
oneogdj10d
zifwhpyiyhg yeah that's also called Focusmate - you can set it up amnytime
ghxuovd10d
Focusmate is blowing up right now with lots of users, highly recommended
foymfr10d

Hey all... Which video conferencing software so you use? I've been using zoom for many years, but would like to look for a replacement...
qdmdoqdtbodg8d
Iโ€™m mostly using whereby with clients. Internally in our company we use google meet.
tgwxfmwofo8d
zkzkbiwoafeby thx I've never heard of whereby... Will look into it. Does it do well over spotty internet connection?
iwlxvsvojdn8d
I use the Matrix with the Riot . im client. It's everything that Zoom and Google aren't. You need a progressive company, like Mozilla/Firefox who run everything through it, or a small team. Secure, encrypted, open source. uxzfxsgnzku
lgyrcjmdde8d
Nice thank you. Looking into that too
anuyotqkwnz8d
๐Ÿ™Œ
ptztlesgxr8d
We mostly have meetings that are less than 20 people, but need many different rooms
ozsfoilpyq8d
And lots of screen sharing
wjpqtdhtffc8d
Ah, gotcha ๐Ÿ™‚
vywqhyhsizb8d
When you find your solution, please let us know! ๐Ÿ™‚
brogutrvun8d
will do!
titzgcgkchj8d
If you're already using AWS for stuff, you could also consider chime. pricing is good if you only need occasional use.
eymhqsfsmue8d
i wouldn't set up an AWS account just to use it though.
ipwudkpulg8d
This looks more like a Slack alternative than a Zoom alternative. Is there a video conferencing and screensharing option somewhere that Iโ€™m totally missing?
ksmzxvwsjv8d
Google Cloud UK83N8XCLโ€ฆ we do a lot of video conference calls because everyone is remote.
wphlrjhjjoz8d
i fortunately only do a couple video calls a month so the $3/day used is great. Definitely not something i'd recommend for everyone due to setup burden, but it seems to have feature parity.

mozyqbgr7d
Hope itโ€™s not administered by a desert clan down there haha
euawfmbcf7d
First time working remote from a long period of time โ€“ 3rd week now.
Starting to feel a bit depressed, hard to get motivation to work. Any tips from people that have been through it?
slxxrp7d
Even reach out to a colleague and do a zoom call while working - donโ€™t have to talk etc - just have some other noise etc around like you were at the office
vknpkrmvpi7d
Iโ€™m struggling to stay motivated as well. Iโ€™ve always worked remotely so thatโ€™s not new but Iโ€™m not used to not being able to _blow off steam_ outside of the house.
wqqfiyrmdjrkw7d
Same problem here U02S224M9. I think I'm getting better at it though.
jeazhuyxcvtxc7d
Find a system
aepgtvfvtg7d
Winter/cold here as well so canโ€™t even go out for a walk/run
txxltebflz7d
I've found routine is the key. Especially in the morning. If I start my day effectively, it carries through for the rest of the day. Easy wins in the morning help boost my ego too ๐Ÿ˜›
upeoktjocc7d
been remote for ~7yrs
bfoajrqhqm7d
Being remote isnโ€™t the problem for me. Been remote for 15+ years
nprainakcq7d
The difficulty of remote work gets compounded I think when you canโ€™t leave the house and interact with other people when youโ€™re _not_ working.
hcqpgxz7d
yeah, this has some unique impacts to productivity that normal remote work does not have
arqyycj7d
like being fully shut in, unable to change environment at any point, trying to focus on "productivity" mid global disaster and general long term uncertainty, etc etc
fffekmsoja7d
I was pretty sick the week or two before this covid-19 really hit and self isolating was a thing. So I pretty much havenโ€™t see friends or interacted with people outside of my house since mid-late Feb
xgxobdgyri7d
And now many cities are starting to tell people to expect this to last until July
tsrfiudmia7d
yeah I feel that. A little stir crazy to say the least ๐Ÿ˜›
dhlvwaq7d
i wouldn't beat yourself up too much about it, for me i'm just trying to meditate more, get as much exercise in my house as i can (yay freeletics + yoga), and accept that we're all in this same situation
iozizyv7d
I'm wondering if a single number dashboard help if we saw that 2 billion people are also locked in and in same situation here?
srrrnsj7d
Like that fasting app that shows 800,345 people did not eat anything today and will live to see another day!
sztkiss7d
Should be a simple quick build and resourceful for many IF it would actually help
clkcglgqqeqlh7d
I came across that recently... Yesterday just couldn't focus on anything so took a day without the computer and less screen time. Talked with a friend and did chores around the house. Should have done some exercise too, but alas...

Today I'm feeling much more productive and energetic

I think I'm going to have to learn some new things to refresh around the house, and do it more often. It's tempting to work every day, but i think forced no electronics days will be necessary
wfzttwsft2d
It sucks more people are also having this, but at the same time a bit comforting to know itโ€™s not just me
idxobzqlf2d
Iโ€™ve accepted now that I can only get 3 or so productive hours these days and thatโ€™s how itโ€™ll be for a while
