@lcasdev @firt Haha, yeah, it even goes through the Face ID flow, but then doesn’t download or install anything. Looks like it’s a bug indeed.

@bramus Since I went to look up the source of this screenshot I might as well save someone else the effort: System requirements for Photoshop on the web (beta): helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/syst….

@samthor @brianleroux Totally going to tell people the story this way from now on, but the truth is that this were just the Adobe-provided stock photos and the elephant looked bad when cropped to the hero image format of 3200x960, so I went with the islan

@briankardell @slightlylate With virtual TPAC you get the best of both worlds: jet lag with 7am meetings and 11pm meetings on one day (plus your regular day work) paired with the same “are you there, folks are waiting for your preso?” anxiety. 🙃

@jaffathecake @rauschma Came here to say this! Browsers could do a better job at surfacing alternative stylesheets for sure.

via Echofon in reply to jaffathecake

@mhartington “Never miss a shared photo” implies they would send you a notification when a share happens. Since the Push API isn’t shipped (but apparently now implemented) in Safari, the app experience is arguably “better”. For the record, I don@jerem
