Blogged about the difficulty of creating Safari extensions. I wish it was easier, because I want my favorite browser to get more of them

@gruber @mjtsai Normally don’t do this, but I feel like your audiences might appreciate this post, especially with all the App Store talk lately

Figured out a pretty low-effort way to take payments in a Chrome extension - no server required. Don't have to give up an extra 5% to ExtensionPay either 😄

The macOS Ventura System Settings has one of the strangest text fields I've ever seen in macOS. Why is it... right-aligned?

A screen recording of me typing into a right-aligned text field. Looks bad

@davidbures I’ve only been on macOS 10 years and could be wrong, but to quote what @gruber said about Shortcuts, this UI feels like it was designed by someone who has never used a Mac

This new Slack redesign is great if you hate screen space, clarity, contrast, ease of use, information hierarchy, messages, channels, and communication

@marcoarment My work has New Slack, but my client doesn’t, and every time I go back it’s like a breath of fresh air. Old Slack is just simple and easy to read.

@stroughtonsmith Hands down the best of the series. Realistic emotional journeys for its characters. Makes me appreciate the whole series more

Everyone's talking about the vaping and the groping but can we talk about Boebert dancing and singing in her seat?

Like does she just already know the words for all the songs in the Beetlejuice musical? How many times has she seen it? Did she get the album before seeing the show? Who the fuck stans Beetlejuice this much?

I've seen a lot of musicals and never sang or danced at any of them. It's not a bachelorette party, it's live theatre. Just sit in you seat and enjoy like a normal person.

@rodhilton This is like when Paul Ryan said he liked Rage Against The Machine and the band said he was exactly the kind of person they were raging against

Sometimes Elon stans call me out on Twitter when people post the "cars and rockets" post, demanding to know what stupid things Elon says about software.

Here's a primo example.

In this exchange, Elon thinks Adam Mosseri is adding rate limits to Threads just like he added them to Twitter, and that he "copied" Elon.

Anyone who understands software knows Adam is talking about WRITE rate limits to curb spam posts. Elon implemented READ rate limits in an application that relies on ad impressions.

@rodhilton Shoot, after hearing about the “screenshots of your most impactful code” thing, I don’t think he understands any kind of software development 😅

Here’s an interesting statement from Medium that I missed last month. Fairly stark contrast to that email newsletter platform a lot of folks are still inexplicably using. https://blog.medium.com/medium-stands-for-lgbtqia-rights-ee4d63e8052e

@molly0xfff It’s not even an accurate category

I think Michael Jordan and LeBron James are the only billionaire NBA players. Definitely not Zion Williamson

Reddit this week.

What they should do: Step back, ask for forgiveness and announce “free" API access but only for their Premium sub. Would end the strike, increase revenue and still kneecap 3rd party apps.

What they'll probably do: Nothing.

What they may do: Something that’s really stupid.

What I have the popcorn ready for: Mass takeover of subreddits, followed by announcement of a move towards AI based mods.

@paul The Verge's policy of always naming the PR person pays dividends.

I don't know this person but it's interesting to see the specific employee sending these super aggro messages

I am completely convinced that AR-style extended reality is the thing that can someday replace desktop computing for a lot of people, if it is not hobbled by poor management and ecosystem decisions before it gets there. Keep your physical keyboard and trackpad, but virtualize your monitors and your macOS environment. If Apple's headset really is on a path, however many years away, towards becoming traditional glasses, this all seems inevitable. Perhaps eventually you won't even need the glasses

@stroughtonsmith I use VS Code to develop the web and JavaScript parts of my Safari extensions and the Copilot integration is really good. Also free for a year if you are an open source contributor!

@stroughtonsmith I want to Autofill Email Codes, a browser extension that helps you quickly find and autofill one-time codes sent to your Gmail.

Works with Chrome and Safari (Firefox soon!). TestFlight as soon as Google finishes approving

Same thing but in Safari

Midjourney isn't half bad at generating onboarding art. With reference material as input, this could be kinda neat
