I’m actually a fan of Safari for casually browsing the web. That browser coupled with 1Blocker makes it a solid alternative.
As far as Firefox is concerned, I still think it’s a fantastic browser but if you’re looking for a seamless experience between macOS and iOS 1Blocker alternative solution that I’ve been using for a few weeks.
The motivation for privacy (which I’ve previously shared) still stands but it may not be the same for you. I’m approaching it with the following attitude:
what I’m comfortable with using may not be the same for you (and vice versa),
and privacy and security are not terms that I use interchangeably.
That said, the rationale for using software like this alongside a browser that’s bundled with an operating system (remember when that was a big deal?) rather than a third-party browser is different.
The idea behind have an SSH passphrase is security and I’m all for that. When it comes to working on a large project where you’re pulling updates from a repository and running composer update to make sure all of the associated packages are updated, it gets a little tedious, though.
Assuming you’re comfortable with wanting to enter your SSH phrase once (so you’re not having to do it for every single dependency you’re installing), it’s really easy to store the passphrase.
I’m not one for setting specific goals or making resolutions at the end of the year. But when I look back at this blog and how it changed over the course of 2019, it’s evident that I blogged far less than I did in previous years.
There are several factors for this, none of which are bad, just the changing nature of life, work, and all that.
But I was hard, ahem, pressed to set a goal for this blog in the next year it’d be to get back to blogging more frequently but also:
with shorter posts,
spending time some time linking out to things I’ve read that I found interesting.
So rather than wait until next year, why not start now?
Every year, I try to take the time off from Christmas to New Year’s to be with family and friends and this year is no different.
During my time off, I’ve spent a bunch of time with my family, seen Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (and it was great to share the experience with my kids to see the movie on the big screen!), and already spent some time with my in-laws to celebrate the holiday.
