    PS. Linux permits you to use the terminal that is perfectly usable without mouse/touchpad.
    Having a DE that can be navigated by keyboard alone is a basic ask not some request to stop innovating and changing things!

    I just reinstalled a iMac and was damned to use the mouse for every thing or I could use voice control - shudder.
    The constant nagging for EULAs, Licenses and to enter a apple account was grating my nerves - I just want to reinstall, update the damn thing and restore the data, so that I can hand it back to my wife. Friendly to non technical users maybe but not to admins!

    I dumped Gnome for Windows 7, after Gnome 3.0 arrived. Gnome was back then quite big mess

    Epiphany is permanently glued to the GTK3 and webkitgtk versions that a distribution ships with. Which is a huge no-go in my book.

    Even Microsoft belatedly realized that something as important as a browser should be kept as separate from the base operating system components as much as possible when they went with Chromium-based Edge.
    Interesting. I wonder what you mean by that. Are you refererring to security updates, overall feature updates or UI toolkit principles?

    For the first, I let bubblewrap sandboxing + regular flatpak update take care of it. However as of late I haven't been happy with it. The GNOME 3.38 flatpak runtime only ships webkitgtk 2.30.4 instead of 2.30.5 even though an advisory with a CVE has been released. Sigh . I might have to switch to the native fedora version.

    As for the last 2 elements, I'm personally neutral towards. I don't mind the "Apple approach" of dumping features every once in a while and I actually like Epiphany's minimalist design though I perfectly understand if you dislike it.

    The problem is in the question.
    Posting on a forum has nothing to do with the desktop environment or even the operating system.

    it doesn't help in any way - i show panel with left hand press on windows button while i move mouse to it with right hand
    it actually slows things down a bit, because i have to hit border before it rises

    it doesn't seem to affect maximized firefox in any way except changing location of min/max buttons

    I did back when I started using Gnome Shell, around Gnome 3.26.
    Even with it being the 14th iteration, it took me about 30 minutes of frustration and a few Google searches on how to do some actual stuff before stumbling upon and learning about the extensions system. That's what saved Gnome for me. And still does.
    Otherwise I would probably be on a different DE now. Budgie and Lomiri being the candidates looming in the shadow. And I believe they will soon emerge in plain daylight.
