In addition: Zstandard (zstd) is also from Facebook and is known for being fast. It compresses and decompresses really fast, unless you use the higher level compressions, beyond 15, more or less. Default compression level is only 3.
I highly recommend it as a replacement for gzip. I use it to compress 16 GB files at level 6 with multithreading (-T0).
If you're running Archlinux and building packages yourself, you may want to lower the default compression level and enable multithreading in your /etc/makepkg.conf with:
COMPRESSZST=(zstd -czv -T0 -9)
"Gnome 3 is shite, and many have complained."
Don't forget that YOU think it is shite. You know, an opinion. I actually love Gnome 3. I don't want to stay stuck in the past. I want a modern computer to have a modern desktop that takes advantage of modern technologies.
It is logical that every major step forward gets a negative response from some. That is unavoidable.
On my Archlinux installation I already have Gnome 40! :-)
Don't forget that apparenlty most of you are used to the Adobe interface and not to the Gimp interface. If it were the other way around, I guess you would be complaining about Adobe.
Personally I have no problem at all with Gimp. Marvellous piece of software. Congratulations!
It does not have to be a third *party*, if that is what you mean by "independent", but there must be a way to verify the keys, by means of fingerprints, hashes, ascii-art, such as used by SSH for example. A different (independent) communcation channel is required for that.
So what are those features that were removed and so important?
I had to say goodbye to Morning Coffee when Firefox made the extensions more secure. Do I miss it? Not at all.
I like the steps that Mozilla is taking with Firefox the last years. Hey, even Pocket plays nicely with my Kobo e-reader. Should it have been a core function? Well, Mozilla bought it, so I don't blame them. If you don't like it, hide the button. Does anyone complain about their car having an ash tray? Didn't think so. And you can't even hide it.

And Google does not do that?
For these things I go directly to Wikipedia; no need for a web search engine.
I use Thunderbird for RSS for many years; I lost the count. I love it that it treats each item as a message that can be marked read (or not), tag it, star it, filter it, etc. I use it for about 50 feeds: news feeds, software release information, status logs from providers, etc
RSS was improved in Thunderbird 60: you can now tune the update interval for each feed, which is cool: status updates from providers every few minutes, some feeds every few days, etc. It is mentioned as "* NEW Individual feed update interval" on this page:
