Chrome browser now auto-logs you in to itself. I noticed this a few days ago, and an happy to see the significance of this change written up so clearly. Makes me happy that I've stuck with Safari as my primary browser for years, and used Chrome only for dev work. https://blog.cryptographyengineering.com/2018/09/23/why-im-leaving-chrome/
@gka How do you feel about Firefox's dev tools these days?
@scott absolutely sufficient for what i need. I never have to use chrome/chromium except for explicitly checking how something looks or works in chrome.
@gka Oh wow, you are even more hardcore than I realized. Or is it just now that NYT won't purchase you a fancy computer anymore that you have been reduced to FOSS? 😉
@scanlime I did not know about that. I will give it a try
@gka :-) Good to know, as I've been warned to never upgrade to the current MacBooks due to how the keyboards stop working if a nano particle of dust sneaks in.
Have you tried Gravit Designer (https://designer.io/)? It's maybe more of a Sketch replacement than Illustrator, but it might do the trick. Seems a little more polished than Inkscape, though I haven't gotten to use it much yet. A little disappointed that it isn't open source and has its own file format…
