🔖 Safari Should Display Favicons in Its Tabs

Safari Should Display Favicons in Its Tabs
A post on Daring Fireball by
It might sound silly if you’re not a heavy user of browser tabs, but I am convinced that the lack of favicons is holding back Safari’s market share.

As a Safari user, interesting to read. I tend to use ‘pinch closed” trackpad gesture on my Air to see where a tab is, but I can see the argument for favicons.

As to the asethic issues, I’m sure Safari could look for a grayscale png in the same way app icons can be served with meta tags.

What Does the IndieWeb Mean to Me?

Today in an important video conference I wore my IndieWeb Camp t-shirt. They couldn’t see it, but I felt like a superhero.

Not because I’m in some kind of club, but because of the principles behind the IndieWeb. Empowering yourself to own your content. Learning about the technologies behind it and sharing that knowledge with others.

Not to mention the brilliant people from all over the globe I’ve been exposed to over the past 12 years of working with people who build tools to allow anyone to have a voice on the Internet. That exposure and sharing of knowledge has made me a better person, and that makes me feel like a superhero.

Clean Git Commit Messages

I have been experimenting with custom git commit message templates for about 6 months, and it’s been good. Comments in the template remind me to write a meaningful message and describe the commit.(That’s not to say when taxed and frustrated, I don’t write the ocassional kill me now message.)

However, in a couple of situations, my commented lines starting with # show up in the commit logs. Not pretty. So today I learned you can add cleanup = strip to your .gitconfig file, thus stripping the commented lines and clean and meaningful commit messages.

Note: I posted this in the Setapp Slack channel, but feel it needs to be said publicly.

It must be frustrating to see the people posting in FB wanting to squeeze more out of Setapp for less. For me, it’s a steal @ $10 a month. I have no expectations of Omnigroup apps or other widely used expensive apps, or a subset of apps for less. I do appreciate seeing new niche apps and small developers added, but c’mon people, respect the work these developers put into their work.

If you are a Mac user and haven’t looked at Setapp yet, I highly suggest you do. Lots of great apps and utilities for a mere $10 a month. And if you use my link I get a free month.
