BTW I definitely see performance as an issue of access. If the CEO, the investors, and the developers are all using beefy desktops on fast connections, then they'll never notice what their less fortunate customers are experiencing on a hand-me-down Android phone or a busted laptop with a HDD. It's easy to miss performance problems if you're not paying attention to users with less money than you.
I wonder if one reason more websites aren't accessible/performant is because of the underlying business model. If investors are always screaming at you about growth, then you'll focus on feature, features, features, to the detriment of less salient virtues like performance, accessibility, security, etc.

Facebook Messenger still scans all messages, even with end-to-end encryption. Scanning is done locally on the device before text messages are sent and after received messages are decrypted.

Today is Overshoot Day,
the day where we as a species have used up the entirety of Earths Renewable resources and live on loans paid by the coming generations.
We as FLOSS enthusiasts can be part of a solution by designing not for an ever grander set of hardware, but for the reusage and improvement of OLD hardware.
Making old refurbished stuff attractive again, or ways to repurpose it so it doesn't have to be thrown away.

OCR (image-to-text) is a useful tool for designers.
Eventually, you'll get screenshots of text and you might need to rework it somewhat or copy and paste it into an illustration program. Or replicate the text in a mockup. Etc.
Retyping the text is not great.
I'm happy there's a decent OCR app in Flathub now, even if it's a little slow. (To speed it up, select the regions yourself instead of using auto-detection.)
So #GitLab Pages has finally rolled out their automatic #LetsEncrypt integration for hosted web sites. It's quite painless and automatically renews certs. So glad that I don't have to manually do this or maintain some brittle CI-based scripts anymore.
If you've got a GL-hosted site, take the next 90 seconds and go secure it!
@andreas The issue author verified that Firefox is not affected by the vulnerability. One more reason to switch.
