I watched the McGill English department's production of Cymbeline on Friday night and it was great. They nailed the comedic notes and touched on just enough tragedy to bring home the cathartic finale.

Old web:
one window, 255 tabs

New web:
two main windows with random division of 5 flavors of Firefox Container tabs, uBlock Origin, each opening links in new Private windows, one persistent private window for the travel site that never works w/o it, one Chromium incognito session for the other travel company that never works, one TBB session for private onion services, one Chrome instance w separate personas for each commercial service I'm forced to use DRM on (no other links). Electron apps.

TIL that the LD4 Discovery Affinity Group is open to anyone to join. It's trying to figure out how to implement search and discovery of linked bibliographic data. On Blacklight but principles to be generally applicable.
