"If one product like #Chromium has enough market share, then it becomes easier for web developers and businesses to decide not to worry if their services and sites work with anything other than Chromium.

I've just published a Jupyter Notebook I used to present an introduction to the excellent Python attrs package at the November 2018 Christchurch Python meetup. https://github.com/chch-python-meetup/2018-11-attrs/blob/master/attrs.ipynb … #Python
This is just one of dozens of reasons I have to get to LCA2019 (which, as luck would have it, is happening just down the road from me, here in Christchurch, NZ in Jan 2019)... https://linux.conf.au/schedule/presentation/100/
