While I am feeling punchy this morning.

Remember how Microsoft was found to be anti-competitive because of their foisting IE on users?

Google does not support the open web.

@rtyler The best part of this is that, yeah, sure, they web technologies that only ship in Google-Chrome-based browsers that Google decided to require for Google Meet aren't, in fact, supported by non-Google-Chrome-based browsers! However, other projects with fewer resources than Google, like Jitsi, seem to support visual effects just fine.

So it definitely feels like a deliberate choice to rely on tech that competitors don't ship rather than supporting what works everywhere. :(

@rtyler @happyborg yeah, and it’s not like I give a crap about “visual effects” either, so why are they deciding for me? 🤨
