New thing I'm trying: leave no interactive tabs open at end of browser session, pin no interactive tabs.

i.e. nothing that pings or has changing favicons (masto, element, telegram, etc.)

I have a phone for notifications if I want them 💁‍♂️

Already feel good.

@tagomago firstly, articles 'shouldn't' be interactive, so this new rule wouldn't prevent me from leaving them open...

I am also using the Zotero Firefox plugin, and I sometimes use that to save a snapshot.

I'm also trying to become a bit more ruthless: my time is limited, is this article something I really want to read?

So, still working on that. How you managing the infopocalypse?

@douginamug

Losing at it with 80 tabs permanently open, plus a few dozen I struggle with daily. I don't know what to do.

@tagomago You may want to use something like wallabag. Or seeing you use emacs, you may want to check this. https://github.com/alphapapa/org-web-tools
I've been using different "read it later" applications for years and it's a game changer. When I check my feeds, I just scan them quickly and decide if I want to read them. If I want to, I save them, if not next. And when I'm done, I may read them. Or just accumulate like 200, that's what happens right now, but at least I don't have them sitting in my browser watching me x) @douginamug

@douginamug @drymer I pushed org-web-tools into my workflow and OMG now I see all my open tabs without scrolling!

@douginamug @drymer One great thing it does is downloading the text of the web pages into the org-mode document (as labelled sub-items of the entries), thus effectively replacing Wallabag with a local, simple tool. 👌

I only need a way to visualize those downloaded texts in a nicer format, similar to my customized Reader View, just in case the original url disappears. Maybe I could generate temporary html documents from Emacs to close the circle, or epubs. Gotta look into that.

I'm sure your computer is relieved too...
