    I really wish Firefox would pull a Google and maintain YUM and APT repositories for the current version of Firefox. Various Linux distributions (e.g. Debian and RHEL) only ship Firefox ESR. If you want to run newer versions of Firefox, you have to download a tarball and untar it and plop it somewhere and write your own .desktop files and what-have-you. Not impossible, but not nearly as nice as Chrome, which just hooks into your distro’s package manager on the more common distros.

      Be careful; you might have people propose Flatpak or AppImage builds of Firefox.

        Flatpaks exist, and work wonderfully

        I will try to finish coding my tech blog in GatsbyJS. I bought a .dev domain this year but haven’t able to finish it due to one thing or the other.

            I haven’t used VLC for ages, and even back then I preferred MPC-HC (on Windows) or mplayer2 (on Linux). I’m happy mpv user (on Windows and Linux) since its very beginning.

            Are there any users who use both mpv and VLC often, and could shed a light what VLC has that mpv cannot provide them?

            1. 2

              Opening videos straight from the browsers “open with dialogue”. Using subtitles with VLC is more convenient for me. Few years ago I used VLC more when mpv had problems with some matroska containers, don’t know if this is problem anymore.

              1. 2

                VLC is a bit more Windows-friendly. But on unix, I use gnome-mpv.

                1. 1

                  Do you use vanilla mpv or some kind of front-end with it?

                  1. 2

                    No GUI front-ends. I’m mostly keyboard-oriented user, but mpv’s built-in OSC is actually good too, so sometimes I operate with mouse in mpv window.

                  Windows 64-bit link is broken.

                    I couldn’t find any mentions of the 64-bit version so I had to look on their download site to grab one.
