The fact that we can have multiple open source operating systems but not one open source fully fledged browser that is not tied to a company worries me. The web truly has gotten way too complex.

@raichoo I couldn't agree more. How is this possible for so many other projects but not something so essential as a browser?

If you haven't seen it, I love this article. It is possible.

@LPS Just for the minutes: It isn't either. FLOSS operating systems have impressively improved the last two decades, but they still lag behind proprietary ones in quite some aspects - unfortunately these aspects aren't what's relevant to the crowd using them. There's too much "law of the instrument" going on here too. 😔
