Other than N key rollover are there any real benefits to going mechanical?
I have never spend more than £10 on a keyboard and my current KU-0316 is comfy as fuck.
How do I justify spending upwards of £100 on a button board?
what are you asking when you say "is _____ a meme"?
as for how you justify spending money on anything, you can ask that of literally everything you buy that's more than just gruel to keep you alive.
We are making a web browser!
In the face of recent changes in Firefox and Chrome some anons were asking for a /g/'s perfect web browser, we collected the most wanted here and plan on continuing with the creation.
To contribute follow the WORK PLAN, join the IRC to ask developers for a repo, and get to programming!

Look at the features list and implement them, ask what is currently being worked on if you don't know.
Current progress report from last thread:
tl;dr: major changes that you can't see
I've been doing a major refactor, throwing out half the code in some files. Means no new features but removes barriers to adding them. Most of the directory structure has been moved around to better reflect our future.
All the OpenGL/glfw code is now container in only 2 classes. Paving the way for older OpenGL support, framebuffer and textual interface.
However OpenGL optimizations did take a step backwards: resizing is super fast but a render (which only happens on load or on resize) is much slower. Though this new structure will allow for texture atlasing.
A lot of breaking things that used to work. Spending hours finding the change that broke them before fixing and repeating.
so now that MPC-HC is dead, is this what we should use?
yeah i guess. i've been messing with mpv for a while now, but every time i need something i have to look it up in the manual or ask in the general here. it's cool but it takes a lot of time, probably gonna use mpc-be now

Does anybody habe a good reason to stick with FF after 57 without referring to memes like "HURR GOOGLE BOTNET"?
I couldn't find one and switched to Vivaldi which is a fucking great browser.

As long the software is created by humans and not by completely unbiased machines i think it matters. Also nightly feels as fast or more than chrome for me but if it's not your case i respect that.

No programming experience but good with computers. What information technology college course would be the easiest and have the best opportunity for a good paying job?
Not op but welding will destroy your eyes and the wages are shitty. It's about to die off too thanks to automation and gas prices going down the sinker.
Plumbing is good but it's a shitty job.

>could you expand on that point?
Periodically you see kinds of cultural movements among people who program, groups of people who think doing some thing will make programming easier/faster/more rewarding. The most obvious example is programming languages, but it doesn't have to be that, development methodologies (agile, XP), test strategies (TDD, BDD), paradigms (structured, OOP, FP), whatever. People do these things and it works well for them so they go out and try and convince other people to do them to.
Sometimes, at some point in the evangelization process, non-technical arguments get created for why a thing is good, or technical arguments get reduced into something that's supposed to be understandable to non-technical audiences. Sometimes those second order arguments are really compelling, managers, recruiters, CEOs hear them and think "if my programmers do this, I'll save money/get promoted/get laid" and so the set out to make their subordinates do that thing.
Being non-technical they don't know how though, so they hire other people to their their people how to do this supposedly great thing. But they need to be sure they don't get ripped off so metrics need to be drawn up to figure out if programmers are actually doing whatever it is that's supposed to be great. There then becomes an intense focus on managing that metic and showing value to management. In this process of boomeranging an idea from a technical community to management and back into the community as an edict from the top often whatever was good in the original idea is totally lost.
TDD is a great example of this: even though the community from which TDD emerged strongly denies that code coverage is a meaningful metric it's what get policed in corporate TDD environments. The people generally responsible for making TDD happen just have a dogmatic idea of "high coverage = good code" without understanding why.
