Web Truths: The web is better than any other platform as it is backwards compatible and fault tolerant | Christian Heilmann

The web is not in a good way. Sure, there is an artisinal, indie movement that creates great new and open ways to use it. But the mainstream web is terrible. It is bloated, boringly predictable and seems to try very hard to stay relevant whilst publishers get excited about snapchat and other, more ephemeral platforms.

So a dude in my neighborhood who the police have talked to multipe times about the murders just posted the most bizarre “I’m not a serial killer” Facebook live video in the neighborhood group.

How’s your Friday going?

I hadn’t heard of uBar until this deal at Apple World Today popped up in my feed.

I normally hide the dock but on my 11″ Air, but still wind up hovering over the dock distracting what I’m doing, or just get lost with so many open apps that I need to find it via the Dock. UBar covers that purpose plus more all the while in a more compact way which is great on that machine. I downloaded the demo and was instantly sold on the 50% deal.

I look forward to exploring the customizations and recommend checking it out if you like the idea of a more customizable and compact dock replacement. It also has an advanced option to completely hide the default dock, otherwise you can move them around to different sides of the screen. Which might be handy to have 2 different areas on a larger screen.
