I don’t know who needs to hear this but: I love my developer tools.
I was using a multiplexer (tmux) for years but colour issues forced me to switch to Zellij. I then switched from Alacritty and Zellij to using Warp as my terminal (helping to consolidate the number of tools I needed to install and configure) as Warp provided a lot of what I was using Zellij for. My switch to Warp also meant I could drop support for FZF as Warp provided fuzzy searching my history, while
fd (see below) allowed me to easily locate files.

htopis just so much more flexible and configurable, and although the graphs in
btmare nice I just don’t need them.
I was using Safari’s “Tab Group” feature, which I really liked along with the following extensions…
- AdBlock One
- Dark Reader for Safari
- SimplyJSON for Safari
- Super Agent for Safari (Cookie Consent Automation)
…but ultimately the Tab Groups feature ended up being super buggy and duplicating bookmarks and groups etc and I couldn’t get the issue resolved, so I ended up back with Google Chrome.
But before we wrap up... time (once again) for some self-promotion 🙊
