    I've been trying to make a site that takes data from the reddit API and displays it like tildes.net does. It's extremely simple, only displaying the frontpage with links to i.reddit.com, but it's been fun learning stuff such as the fetch API.

    Doesn't Visual Studio do that too?

    On the other hand, the value of intellij is apparent as soon as it suggests some code for me.

    fyi, reddit.premii.com is a thing. It's not as polished as it's hackernews counterpart, but it's still a decent webapp.

    I subscribe to freecodecamp's newsletter in the hopes of coming across a helpful article. Thus far, the links I've been receiving are completely useless (I barely know basic JavaScript, stop sending me articles about machine learning and NodeJS!) but I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

    Also, good luck with your learning! I'm also trying to get into (basic) JavaScript. Lots of bugs, headaches, and confusion, but whenever something actually works, it's super fun.

    I tried using puppy linux once, but for some reason, the laptop I used wouldn't detect the USB as something to boot from. The only distro that worked was Ubuntu.

    A good alternative to r/worldnews is r/neutralnews. Less joking whenever someone dies, commenters are required to source statements, and discussion is generally better.

    If you don't want discussion and just want news, there's r/autonewspaper.

    It seems like any continent filter has complete access to your browsing history, correct?

    I'm not exactly sure what you mean by continent filters, but all content blockers on iOS work in basically the same way: they give Safari a list of resources and URLs to block, and Safari does all the blocking. The app never sees any browsing history.

    And no, the app isn't proprietary.

    Have you tried Adguard? It's basically Ublock Origin for iOS, and the annoyances filters basically mean you don't even have to see any cookie popups.

    I normally use Safari on mobile, but Brave's new update is pretty good, making it as fast as chrome or firefox, but with script blocking and fingerprinting protection. Now it no longer crashes whenever I have more than five tabs open.

    I would destroy the secret, to preserve the status quo. Unless immortality also includes eternal youth, it would result in an ever expanding population of resource consuming elders. Also, we'd all grow tired of life at some point, and immortality would be a curse for us then.
