The designer in me is convinced that Firefox’s ugly tab UI is one reason for its poor/dwindling market share.

On the plus side I just found MaterialFox. It’s a little much on the Chromy side, but better that than the Firefoxy side.

I released a major update for an old app of mine, Abee, a tool to import contacts into the macOS address book. Useful if you’re coming to macOS from another platform or need to regularly sync from another platform.

What convinced me to dust it off and update it is actually an old customer who contacted me and reminded me of its usefulness. I’m actually pretty proud that this app has been around since 2003!

We had a Corolla loaner today while my car was in for repairs and I can’t get over how bad the design of the interior is. Too many textures, too many shapes, red indicators for normal situations, unaligned graphics and letters. The whole dashboard is a driving distraction. Design this bad should be illegal.

I like that this definition of privacy reminds us that it’s simply about being human:

Privacy is having the choice – it is the right to decide who we tell what, to establish boundaries, to limit who has access to our bodies, places and things, as well as our communications and our information. It allows us to negotiate who we are and how we want to interact with the world around us, and to define those relationships on our own terms.
