Indeed, but tags are not available in Firefox for Android, if I'm not mistaken.

RTR#51 End of a short break

Last week, I dealt with formalities related to the project and a few personal matters associated with the new year. Unfortunately, there was quite a lot to handle. Today is the last day I'm dealing with this, and I'm returning to the code for the regular devlogs. I'll also take care of current matters on the instance. On Tuesday...

Welcome back!

I'd like to know what is needed for the Interstellar app to support the kbin.social instance.
Could you get in touch with the developer and/or enlighten us on that matter? I think app support would be a HUGE benefit to kbin.social.
Thanks in advance!

Another Interstellar update: new icon, microblogging support, editing/deleting capabilities, youtube embedding, and more (kbin.earth)

To start, Interstellar finally has an app icon; thanks to @BenjMathis1 for designing it and @dannii_montanii for helping implement it into the app! (https://raw.githubusercontent.com/jwr1/interstellar/e55763688df9f62b12997515830344b701e1f47c/assets/icons/logo.png)...

@ernest When can we expect kbin.social to support the API and external logins?

I really want to support Kbin and stay on your instance, but not having a mobile app is a serious deal-breaker. Supporting apps should get priority over introducing new kbin features IMHO. Kbin.social is the biggest instance, so I'd expect it to support all needed APIs?

I hoped Artemis would deliver, but it didn't. Now Interstellar is my next resort. Today I even considered ... <whisper> returning to Reddit </whisper> for a brief moment.

New extensions you’ll love now available on Firefox for Android (blog.mozilla.org)

Today, Mozilla announced more than 450 new extensions (software that adds new features or functionality to the browser) to users on Firefox for Android at Mozilla’s AMO Android page. This milestone marks the launch of a new open extension ecosystem on mobile where developers are now free to create and publish extensions and...

Brusselse YouTuber gooit emmer met hondenuitwerpselen over metropassagier (www.vrt.be)

Voor zijn laatste video overgoot YouTuber “YaNike” een metropassagier met een mengsel van olie, water, verdorde bladeren en hondenuitwerpselen. Zowel het slachtoffer als de MIVB hebben intussen een klacht ingediend. “Hij vernedert onze klanten, dit is onaanvaardbaar”, zegt woordvoerster An Van hamme.

Disgusting. Some people are sick.
Don't watch his video ... you don't want to reward such behavior with views.

Thanks, maybe I will. It could be a problem on the side of LinkedIn too of course.

Seems like you have the technical background to further investigate this 🙃.

Good to know it happens on Instagram as well.

Thanks, good to know.

It's never been a better time to switch to Firefox on Android (www.androidpolice.com)

The final push to start using Firefox over Chrome on Android might finally be thanks to the enormous selection of add-ons (Firefox’s version of extensions) coming out next month. Chrome doesn’t offer native support for extensions in its mobile app. Also, better security.

Would be great if Firefox Translations are brought to Android.

Please spread the word!

/kbin Road to Release devlog series

From today, I'm starting a small series of daily devlogs where I'll be describing the changes being implemented before the official release of the first version of /kbin. As I mentioned earlier, I had some minor turbulence in my private life from which I'm slowly emerging. I have partially stabilized my life situation in various...

Thanks for the updates, @ernest!

Is support for third-party apps (through a Kbin API) something we may expect for this first version?

8BitFriendly,

Great to hear! Please keep us posted about Kbin or Mbin support in the Artemis app. I really like these content aggregation and microblogging platforms (made the switch from Reddit), but without a mobile app the experience is subpar.

Wishing you the best, Ernest. Take your time to get things sorted out. As I've said before, we can wait :)

"It's the content, stupid." - Quick Notes to Supercharge K.Bin

Like you, I'm a passionate user of K.Bin but lately, I'm noticing that things are getting kinda stale around here. The most recent thread in this, the top-level magazine on K.Bin, is 4 days old. Many other top 25 magazines are also suffering from a similar lack of fresh content. I run /m/scifi and it's been continuing to grow...

The lack of a mobile app doesn't help ... hope API support arrives soon.

Hi Ernest, just a little message to tell you that we can wait. Give your family issues priority. First things first. Thanks for all the work done.

Looking forward to test/try the app when the API is ready!

That was already possible for some time, actually. Glad you like it.
