You get annoyed by having to enter your 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.

I program for over 20 years. I just closed some tabs from yesterday:

"how to create directory in python"
"concat lists python"
"load 2 models tensorflow"
"how set pythonpath"

and some others.

And yes. I have a masters degree in informatics.

You don't need to learn things that you rarely need & are just 1 duckduckgo away by heart. Knowing that they exist and what to search for is sufficient.

Important are the thing you cannot search. Concentrate on those.

Reminder why switching.social does NOT recommend using Brave:

-Brave is a for-profit ad sales and cryptocurrency promotion company, funded by venture capital firms. Its primary purpose is to make money, not protect privacy.

-Top of the list of Brave's VC owners is Founders Fund, which is Peter Thiel's company ( web.archive.org/web/2019083116 )

-Peter Thiel is also the head of Palantir, which makes its money by spying on the general public ( bloomberg.com/features/2018-pa )

"Ach komm, Zero-Days werden doch in der Praxis kaum ausgenutzt. Und wenn, dann betreffen sie einen winzig kleinen Nutzerkreis."

Solche oder ähnliche Sätze habe ich schon von einiges Security-Freaks gehört. Stellt sich heraus: Damit liegt man ziemlich falsch.

"Ah, Frxz?"
Our alien intern looked up from their workstation. "Yes, supervisor!"
"You added a 'Gender' field to our site."
Frxz beamed, literally. "Yes! Traditional!"
"And the options..."
"I researched. One differentiator!"
"I'm afraid we can't use 'pockets' and 'no pockets'."
