Apple: "All apps submitted to the App Store must support IPv6 starting in early 2016."

"To make sure your app is compatible, use the networking frameworks (e.g., “NSURLSession”), avoid use of IPv4-specific APIs, and avoid hard-coded IP addresses. Before submitting your app, test for compatibility."

There's still some good to all of this: " [...] at the same time Mozilla was announcing its new direction regarding add-ons, its dev team was also busy contacting add-on developers and providing assistance and support for its new WebExtensions API."
Firefox and Mozilla are going through a mid-life crisis

Yeah I wouldn't notice any tab issues so much because I don't typically have more than half a dozen open at anytime. I don't care so much if my extensions don't sync but bookmark syncing seems okay. Part of the main reason for switching is that my battery life is far better when using Safari over anything else.

Introduction
I like open source, sharing, music, tech-related news, science thingies, TV series that don't assume viewers are stupid, and all things funny. Not necessarily in this order.
Bragging rights
I've beaten Flappy Bird. Once you get past the pipe demons and the orange missiles, it becomes quite an easy and fun ride.
