I wonder what "normal" people do after installing a new program...

I just installed Qutebrowser, and the first thing I did was to open it's GitHub repo, click on "Pull Requests" and just download every interesting one as a patch to apply into my build.

It's been around an hour or so, and I think I'm just now finished after weeding out all the ones causing merge conflicts.

It's going to take a while to get used to not having any "cosmetic" ad blocker, especially in today's web.

I guess I could just "display: none" everything. We'll see...

The included Bitwarden integration script is really wonky, I had to manually remove it's token from keyctl (that's a thing?) because I sync'd the database from the CLI and the old token was no longer recognized.

Hopefully, after I finish logging into everything, this won't be a noticeable issue.

well, i say included, but it's just an extra python script added to the repo by someone else. it's not really the browser's fault

The 'colors.webpage.darkmode.enabled' setting doesn't support URL patterns? That's, like, the most useful setting to support that!

Oh god reddit without cosmetic ad filtering is horrifying

The scrolling speed seems slow compared to the about:config settings I had for my Firefox. Not sure if there's anywhere to tweak that. I should take a look at this tomorrow

Also doesn't seem to support autoscroll (middle click scrolling).

I should look for that as well
