The problem is experts in AI are biased towards AI (it pays their salaries).

As if people are forced to publish there.

TIL, I did some research because of your comment and indeed, the difference in their use cases is mostly a market thing, not so much a limitation of each one. This answer is particularly good at explaining that.

Ah, the eagerness to publish some “news” based on a Tweet or a Reddit post from a random person with no confirmation at all.

Something like tauri does, by using the OS web engine, so the apps can be a few KB (depending on the code of course).

Also there are better solutions if you want to have your UI in HTML nowadays. You don’t need to embed a whole web browser in each app.

I don't trust my mobile - they're much harder to make private and "yours" than a desktop.

Still mobile phones are designed with much more security in mind than desktop environments, and basically everybody has a device.

It will never have this since it's incapable of using native widgets and theming

You can criticize Electron’s performance and memory footprint, but as long as there’s an API to access something, it can access the same features as a native app, it just depends on the company’s willingness to do it. HTML is also one of the best platforms in terms of accessibility.

The problem though, is that cross-platform apps are optimized for that: sharing the same code among systems, and using specific OS features complicate things, so the tendency is to use the same solution for all of them, even when it isn’t the correct one. Also, they make it possible for developers who don’t know a certain OS well to still build for it, making things potentially worse in the user experience.

I always felt like I was alone in this thinking. I think anyone with a bit of a security mindset don’t want everything connected, besides it makes them more expensive and easier to break. It’s certainly very convenient for programmed obsolescence.

It’s more that there is a vocal minority against it. I’d guess most of us are mostly neutral about it, we see the problems and the benefits but don’t see the need to comment everywhere about our feelings towards it.

I think the common shared experience of all of us is none of us can tell with absolute sure what triggers it, but we all naturally look for patterns.
