You have got to recognize Mozilla for their consistency in running a shit show: not only do they forget to renew certificates and make all users see their extensions disabled, but their main page says nothing about the issue: mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/ - you need to go on "fix a problem" to see a minuscule banner that hardly gives any information and points to a URL without a proper link. So much incompetence is amazing! #mozilla #shitshow

I've updated the switching.social poster, to make it as simple and easy to read as possible:

switching.social/spread-the-wo

The idea of the poster is to go on community noticeboards, so that more people in real life realise there are alternatives to what big tech offers them.

Feedback on design and content etc welcome.

#Alternatives

Everyone who wants more features than me is a hopeless amateur who doesn't care about bloat. Everyone that wants fewer features than me is a neckbeard that spends far too much time configuring their computer.
