You get annoyed by having to enter your #Mastodon handle each time you want to follow/interact with someone on a "foreign" page?
I got that too, but I've made a little add-on to solve this "problem". 😃
It automatically "redirects" you to your own instance.
Did you know that #firefox usage has almost passed Chrome usage on one contenent?
… that contenent is Antarctica.
RFC 9001 - Kisses over Unicorn Protocol
From the RFC series on dangerous magic of rare magical creatures
If A kisses unicorn X while thinking about B, and B kisses unicorn Y while thinking about A, the unicorns transmit the kiss over the wireless long-range Unicorn Protocol, such that, in fact, A and B are kissing.

I'm trying to keep track of the mass migrations to Mastodon that have happened.
I think it started with:
- early adopters, programmers, FOSS people
- tons of peeps in Japan
- furry community moving off Twitter
- LGBTQ+ folks leaving twitter
- people who saw that polygon article (me) or heard about it when it started getting mentioned on hackernews
- comics/artists leaving twitter
- NSFW blogs leaving Tumblr
- sex workers
- and now, Indian politics Twitter users
Am I missing any big moments?
@rugk I think we all have a common goal: Secure, private and censorship resistent networks.
The question is, what techniques will help and what are the side-effects.
Small to medium-sized servers (probably even ISPs servers), which are fast and can handle a quite big load; likely per region or so. And all should be legally bound to privacy agreements not to collect user's #DNS data.
This is an utopia of course, but… #dosOverHttps
Some more thoughts: I very much like their consent prompt there. It balances the clear intent to keep it enabled (as it is a security feature) and the ability to disable it.
I've written more details on why I like this here: https://github.com/mritzmann/firefoxvschrome.com/pull/3#issuecomment-552226642
Mindboggling about the security feature #DoH (DNS-over-HTTPS):
When #Mozilla enables it in the US (only for now), people cry.
Without even knowing the details, sometimes.
E.g. this is the consent prompt you get, when it is enabled… (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-dns-over-https#w_opt-out)
