(#sax4t6a) @email@example.com Hmm, so these were just regular web pages? 🤔 Wasn’t there also a thingy called “Channels” or something, which was “special”? That’s what I had in mind … I vaguely remember this showing news from a local TV station …
I really don’t remember anymore. 😅
when browser vendors push RSS so far to the sidelines, companies will respond by replacing RSS with Twitter and Facebook accounts.
That’s pretty much what happened eventually, isn’t it?
The blog post outlines a nice vision of how feeds could have been handled (show them on the browser’s start page and such). That would have been super userful for ordinary users. (Almost reminds me a bit of Microsoft’s “Active Desktop” back in the day. 😅 What did that use under the hood? Probably not RSS, that wasn’t around yet, I think?)
(#7fs3pwq) @firstname.lastname@example.org Ah, yeah, that is a bit older. To be honest, I kind of understand them there. Was the “live bookmark” feature ever useful? That wasn’t an actual feed reader, mostly because it lacked a “notification” mechanism (inform the user about new items).
It would have been nice if they hadn’t removed the indicator icon as well. You know, that little icon in the address bar that informs users when a web site offers a feed. Via that icon, users could discover the mere fact that feeds even exist.
Just noticed that Firefox now downloads feeds (Atom, RSS), which is a little less than helpful. 🙄
(#uft3kdq) @email@example.com Oh, fun with Unicode. 🥴 U+00A0 and U+FEFF are also great. We recently had an issue at work where the browser (only on macOS) was unexpectedly spamming 0+FEFF into Grafana’s text boxes. Grafana then failed to properly parse that user input …
How do you identify a feed? Did you take the
url metadata field into account (if present)?
Feels a bit like the mechanism that fills the cache predates the feed metadata extension, eh? 🤔 (I don’t remember the timeline anymore. 🥴)
Yarn.social users keep mentioning me as
https://uninformativ.de/twtxt.txt, which is not correct. The
www. is missing. Is there something we can do about that or should I extend my client so that it recognizes this as “me”, too? 😅
Cloudflare doesn’t offer end-users any way to dispute or even check their IP reputation scores. The company doesn’t offer end-users any support at all. Everything is automated.
Great, innit? All these blackboxes deciding what you can and cannot do …
Our code at work is riddled with that. Ruby people love using this. I just don’t get it. It’s like their brain works in a completely different way. 🤔
