Interesting talk that argues that we should change the way we view the web, and ultimately, technology. Good to see a different viewpoint on the tech industry.
Designers! I am a San Francisco computer programmer, but I come in peace! I would like to start with a parable about airplanes. In 1981, my mother and I flew from Warsaw to New York City in this airplane, an Ilyushin-62. The Il-62 exemplifies a Soviet design approach I like to think of as "add ...

Yeah I'm leaning more toward the "we won't recognize it" feeling when viewing the future if the web. Hopefully that future has less JavaScript loading on every page lol

Seriously, where was the enthusiasm??? Same goes for the "What's new in Android" talk, which was adequately summed up when there was no applause and the response was...
Dan Sandler: "I think there are literally crickets in here"
Chet Haase: "No, they're dead crickets"

And then as I went to StackOverflow for yet another time today, to solve figure out yet another problem, I was alarmed alerted that I received the pathetic prestigious honor of the "Enthusiast" badge, meaning that I somehow managed to visit the day 30 days in a row (I should take that as a warning not an honor) probably because I was programming (but really, I can't remember anymore), and as I realized how much of a nerd I am, I was all like:

And then, as I was debugging some code that cached favicons and touch icons, I loaded up the New York Times and just happened to look at the Chromium console output in Logcat at that same moment and it was all like...

We're the people who turn on 2FA, so that we actually get some text messages once in a while.

So I started a job as a software engineer this week working on Android apps! I'm working for Ask Partner Network here at IAC headquarters in NYC.

Beautiful building, fantastic team members, the potential to reach a lot of people, and Android. I'm stoked.

Lightning Browser 4.0 is rolling out to ALL users over the next few hours.

It's been a long process of updating it over the past several months, as I've been very busy finishing up my last semester at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, working as a contractor for National Grid and Ask Partner Network, and figuring out what exactly I'm going to do after graduation. Thank you to everyone who's been waiting for this update for being patient, and thank you more so for using my app; to have so many people benefit from something I've built is really important to me.

So, what are you going to see in this update for Lightning Browser? Here's a few user-facing changes:
* Material Design (for everyone!) - This encompasses a huge number of architectural changes
* Light/Dark Themes
* Reading Mode
* Color Mode (Enable it in settings)
* SOOOOOOO MANY BUGFIXES AND IMPROVEMENTS
* Text reflow for everyone (even lollipop and kitkat)
* Ability to block third party cookies
* Translations <3 you all for translating
* a zillion other tiny changes

Phew. Thanks for reading.

And then I was working happily along, replacing a boring static drawable with one that I drew to a canvas, and it was way better than the old one and supported localization, and then, after I had committed it and created a pull request and someone had +1'ed it and merged it into the dev branch, I ran it on an older API version (that we support) and it crashed with a MethodNotFoundException and I was all like...

A new dark theme for Lightning Browser. This also affects incognito mode, and can be enabled for the whole app from settings.
