Is that time of the year again. Half the World is expecting it. Is the time for:
Linux for targets: Predictions 2016
Retrospective of predictions 2015.
I will write few-to-none new posts on this blog.
Correct. This one was easy.
There will be zero new projects made on Adobe Flash.
Correct! as far as I know. Except for those crappy free online games.
WebRTC will support VP9 and kick ass.
Well, that sentence does not even make sense. I guess I meant that Firefox would support VP9 for WebRTC. It has not been the case :(
Related: I tried Firefox Hello during the year and, even though the video was OK, the audio was crap. To the level of "I can barely understand you". Pfff no replacement for Skype at sight yet.
Somebody at YouTube will realize that refreshing the page on log-in sucks, and will do that on Ajax
The most interesting OS in the world (Firefox OS) will continue to be shipped only on infra-hardware
Correct. I guess creating drivers for average 200-300 USD phones is so fucking hard. Is still sad not being able to use one of them with Firefox. Who called "high-end" to this?
Will buy a new battery for my 4 year old laptop, since newer laptops are not really that better.
Did not happen. I'm seeing nearly interesting replacements appearing, although above 1000 USD. My dream is something based on a 14- nm Atom (or Core M) expandable up to 16+ GB of RAM. I would pay whatever it takes for that. Whatever factor it has.
And now, predictions 2016.
- Eww who cares about the desktop anymore. Life goes on the web. Let's just hope Mozilla can really focus on Firefox and save us from doom.
