The official #corona app in #Finland is GSF dependent.

Should we maybe take wee pause here and have a national, or global even, comversationabout the absurd situation we are in?

Right now, to get your hands on official, government funded, pamdemia app, you _must_ be #Apple or #Google customer.

Is this fine?
Why not?

Now the media are warning that city centres will become "ghost towns" if people continue to work from home.
The benefits to the environment and people's health are obviously less important than profit.
I think that the way people think about work has changed for good, we need to adapt city centres for accommodation and public spaces.

So many people saying they're switching from Firefox. Won't this only make the problem worse?

If you're switching to Brave or qutebrowser or UnGoogled Chromium or something, you're only strengthening Google's monopoly. If you're switching to a Webkit-based browser like Epiphany, you're shifting the monopoly towards Safari, whose parent company doesn't consider the Web a priority.

That Mozilla has bad management doesn't change the fact that Firefox is the most viable option for the open web.
