turns out this is a known issue with Qt on Windows and you can fix it pretty easily by deleting the %appdata%\qutebrowser\data\webengine\Service Worker directory

thanks internet

decided to give qutebrowser a try and I honestly really like it, it's fast, has a clean ui, and navigating with a keyboard is surprisinly intuitive and efficient on most sites, despite the fact I've never used vim or anything similar

early mockup (in html) of something I may or may not ever end up finishing

possible future federated alternative?

Granted, it's not "destructive" and shouldn't be a huge issue as long as you're not purposefully triggering it - worst that seems to happen is a chkdsk scan when you reboot

Don't believe everything you hear on the internet, I guess

Seems concerning that all it takes to mess up the MFT of a NTFS drive on Windows 10 is accessing a crafted path, and that doing so doesn't even require user intervention

I'd be interested to test it in a VM or on some older Windows versions but I really hope this gets fixed soon. (or I could just bite the bullet and switch to a Linux distro, that works too lol)

@angristan I’ve seen a couple of these “I want to build a Twitter alternative” people pop up in the last few days and what unites them is that they’re not interested in hearing the problem’s already been solved

Any single entity that thinks they can protect a huge pile of valuable data forever is as naive as I once was.

We must stop taking the easy road or picking things based only on their UX.

Learn to use decentralized systems and teach others or the free internet won't survive.
