"Chrome has the most resources and leads the pack in building the web forward to the point that we can't be sure if we're building the Web we want... or the Web Google wants."
"Can I fully control my Android phone?": No, you can't.
– in our tests, AFWall+ leaked DNS queries of all apps on the device (including blocked apps), making it easy to determine apps installed on the phone
– updating Android doesn't imply that firmware vulnerabilities get fixed
– apps from F-Droid/Play Store etc. can still leak personal data as shown in our /e/ article
– besides, your proprietary baseband processor, GPS, sensors etc. remain out of control
@Curator How much free storage do you offer there for artists?
In the US they are looking for "solutions" that opens encrypted data to law enforcement. A Backdoor for the "good guys" only is impossible. Encryption must remain strong and unbreakable, here's why: https://tutanota.com/blog/posts/why-a-backdoor-is-a-security-risk

Ultimately #Google #Apple still control the app stores, BUT the #FDroid market is growing, #Android forks are growing, the #EU is behind the movement off #Play, and with Vue.js your code supposedly works on the free and open Internet too, for your #saas enjoyment, so the downside of developing #mobile #native #apps is minimal, compared to before where mobile had its neck in a Darth Vader "app store" chokehold.
Also Jen Looper suggests the #ReactNative license is still questionable... (As far as Facebook still having some legal tentacles creeping inside all React Native apps? Yuck!) Vue.js definitely has more street cred in that regard. Like HTML5 was the nail in the coffin for Adobe Flash, I can see unencumbered #Vuejs pulling mindshare from its Google/Facebook-backed competitors.
