Loading +The Verge's website:
9.5MB across 263 HTTP requests

Most of it is third party tracking scripts and ads.

You may be thinking "That's why I run AdBlock!". Well, I still believe +The Verge deserves to be paid for the bandwidth, and the writers deserve to be paid for their labor. And selling your visit is how they pay for their free content you enjoy.
The other fair solution, is to just not visit the site. Shit, add their domain to your AdBlock, since you're running it already ;)
TL;DR: Did you know that The Verge delivers you to around 20 companies for advertising & tracking purposes? I didn't. That might foul up your mobile web experience a little bit. Maybe we should try something different.

Change can be confusing. Focus on a specific piece of code before looking at git history. Highlight interesting code > right click > Git > Show History for Selection. #AndroidDev

My favourite feature is the fact that it pulls the apps menu and google bar background colours using the Palette library to sample from your wallpaper colour so that if you have a daily changing wallpaper collection like Muzei by Roman Nurik your launcher colour scheme will update as well.
Not going to lie, there are worse things to wake up to on a Sunday morning... Thanks +Phil Nickinson :)
The launcher is the most important part of any smartphone user interface. And the best one comes from Australia. I don't recall exactly when I got fed up with every launcher that wasn't Action Launcher. But I do remember why. I'm not all that adventurous when it comes to my home screens. I know what apps I want out front, and I know where I want them. And what I don't want is for the...
