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.
