  • How do you deal with losing lots of saved stuff?
    3 projects | | 2 Oct 2022
    That said, I recently ran into a similar issue to yours with a ton of tabs open on a browser on a phone that I need to reset soon. Doing it manually sucked, and there seemed to be no end to the tabs (many of which I was delighted to re-discover as I was doing it manually). So what I did was use QtScrcpy and AutoHotkey to automate the process of bookmarking it on the mobile browser and then use sync to access them on the desktop. This was Brave browser, but I'm sure it would work with Chrome or Mozilla too. So next time you are facing the challenge of saving mobile tabs, this could be a solution.

    There's pynput but that might have the same problem. If you're on Windows AutoHotkey is an awesome way to automate mouse and keyboard actions (but it's a different language than Python, although it seems someone has made a Python wrapper for it).

    Autohotkey - script text replacement or all kinds of cool things. E.g. treat caps + IJKL as arrow keys on windows, or expand huge text selections.

    These are great examples.

    > What's an example of a desktop Linux application that is so good that somebody will setup or buy a Linux machine to run?

    This is a tough question as most of the software I use on Linux can be used on MacOS with its ancient FreeBSD userland or Windows with WSL or natively. I feel that often developers who don't treat Linux as an afterthought also make things available for other platforms.

    I know for me, I use a Linux machine for the software ecosystem I use to keep things keyboard driven. skhd[1] on MacOS and Autohotkey[2] on Windows can help but when I have tried both it is not quite as flushed out in my opinion. I also use Linux for increased privacy and a more minimal environment compared to MacOS or Windows. I would say those are compelling reasons to use Linux and are directly impacted by software available Linux. One could also argue the lack of undesirable software (bloatware, adware, etc.) is also a compelling reason to use Linux.

    This all being said, I am not one to argue this is the year of the Linux Desktop. I'm a security engineer and the lack of standardization on the desktop side of Linux is a HUGE weakness and until that is addressed I don't think it will ever be the year of the Linux Desktop.
