everything wrong with free software

fuckzilla will not be missed.
ive hated that awful piece of shit for at least half a decade, even switched to pale moon for a while until i learned first-hand what a gormless, miserable twat its lead developer is. please understand, pale moon is such a piece of shit i actually switched BACK (under protest) to mozilla, despite the fact that i hated it.
i was not lax in looking for alternatives, but my criteria are several and difficult to meet. i do not recommend brave, although its crap that eich left and mozilla was never better without him. i typically wont try new github software, but even if i did, its still difficult to find browsers that dont suck.
gemini is here, and this makes me crave the web less. of course i still run this website, and i have modified it to only use features of gemini, because thats how cool an idea i think it is. i hope to move off the web, but for now im taking websites more minimal.
there were so many reasons that i wanted to get rid of firefox, its become an extremely hateful non-profit towards users, the browser is shit and it has nasty features im working so hard to turn off, it makes me think of when i used to edit the registry in windows-- well over a decade ago.
now mozilla can go fuck itself, and so can all the people running the non-profit. i deleted the cache and everything.
its been nearly a year since (august 2020) i got rid of the penguinshit kernel. im still very happy about that.
free software has become fake-- not all of it, but so much of it. open source was ALWAYS fake, except for 5 minutes when it was just ridiculous.
we need software that is more free. this freely-licensed bullshit with telemetry and features that fuck the user over-- fuck all of that.
au revoir, lizardshit.
