last minute blog post, InertiaJS + Browsersync 

InertiaJS is a really impressive approach to building fullstack web applications. I've probably first heard about it in the Javascript Jabber from in episode 443. Adopting it was really straightforward as I had previous experiences with Laravel, TailwindCSS and Svelte (which is still my choice for front-end). Two issues I found:

@aral is there a brand new completely privacy respecting browser everyone should start using right now, or what is behind your recent activity?
