13 Thermidor an 224 de la Révolution
I have started using WeeChat. What finally moved me to do it was the combination of weechat.el and wee-slack. With them I can chat on slack from Emacs.
Add to that the weechat-android and a bit of bitlbee and I have the perfect unified messaging system which I can use from my desktop and from my mobile sharing state between them.
So I think I will be seen on IRC again.
Conkeror is a great keyboard-oriented browser based on Firefox. I recall having tested it years ago but since now I am used to Emacs keystrokes browsing in conkeror feels great.
