schestowitzEither your browser force you to use https, which we do not officially support, or Google is messing about. This is an ongoing problem with the way today's monopolistic Web works. Look into gemini:// instead:Aug 20 00:19

schestowitzWhat's new in Kiwi Next?Aug 20 06:18
schestowitzNetworks and settings rememberedAug 20 06:18
schestowitzAll your settings and networks will be remembered for when you come back. You won't need to be re-entering your favourite networks every time you open Kiwi anymore.Aug 20 06:18
schestowitzMobile and tablet supportAug 20 06:18
schestowitzNow that over 50% of internet usage is now on mobile, Kiwi has complete mobile support with new layouts and messages. Everything is accessible with just your fingers.Aug 20 06:18
schestowitzEmbedded images and videosAug 20 06:18
schestowitzOpening photos and videos within Kiwi now gets pinned at the bottom of the screen. This lets you switch channels, keep talking without it going off-screen, and have that permenant youtube video playing while you're talking.Aug 20 06:18
schestowitzZNC integrationAug 20 06:18
schestowitzWhen connecting to a ZNC server, Kiwi will now automatically detect it and look for any other networks in your ZNC account. If any are found then they are shown in a list - just one click away from connecting to it.Aug 20 06:18
schestowitzAliases editorAug 20 06:18
schestowitzA full alias editor to create command aliases to handle users in your channel, administrate your network or project, or even join multiple commands into a single helpful command. Created by a simple text editor that lets you copy/paste/share your aliases wherever you please.Aug 20 06:18
schestowitzRaw IRC powerAug 20 06:18
schestowitzIf you're a power IRC user or like to get indepth, Kiwi now uses the raw IRC protocol directly in the browser. Look at the raw IRC messages going back and forth, send raw commands, or use it's scripting to test out new protocol ideas and experiments.Aug 20 06:18
schestowitzThe most IRCv3 compliant open source web IRC clientAug 20 06:18
schestowitzIRC is being pushed forward by the IRCv3 working group which brings us new features that any IRC client can be using. Not only taking part, but Kiwi is one of the most IRCv3 complete web clients that exists.Aug 20 06:18

schestowitzthis IRC channel has been stuck for hours, saying nothing after "router maint; ssh will break but tmux will be ok; eta 30 min; " I thought waiting longer would help, but I saw no further activity after that and could type nothing, hence ctrl+c'd itAug 20 12:27

Techrights-secAh.  THere was some writing today but it is gone now. Aug 20 13:56
schestowitz-TRbased on the tone I am guessing nothing too important. iirc, somewhere in system files the portions of ytalk streams can be foundAug 20 13:57
schestowitz-TRabout 10 times over the past 6 months, esp. after system updates, I checked if thunderbird let's me do pgp to  secondary address but no... still no fix. maybe v91 has a fix, but debian has not built it yetAug 20 13:58
Techrights-secI don't have v91 either but have heard a few mixed reviews of it.Aug 20 14:14
