Mozilla has always championed the open web. So why is it abandoning desktop web apps, the most powerful alternative to proprietary App Stores?

Congrats to the Rust team and Mozilla for this milestone! I wonder if Mozilla could further its mission better by being an incubator instead of trying to develop its own products. They could develop technologies and build them into sustainable foundations. I trust Mozilla to think about the right things when starting a new technology, but I'm not so sure about their expertise to develop end-user products.
Wow. Another really disappointing move from #Mozilla. They're removing the bare-bones alpha version of desktop #PWA support from #Firefox. According to one of their team members, they have no plans to support PWAs on desktop anytime soon.
Ugh, #Mozilla rolled out their new docs platform and I'm not a fan. I'm getting a mobile view on a window that's 1090px wide, which is ridiculous. And there's still no dark mode and you have to use Github to interact with it. This is a big regression. Their website says they want to "support a healthy internet" and you don't do that by forcing people onto a centralized platform and making harder to use the main source of documentation for web standards.
It's pretty disappointing #Mozilla chose to use Github for their new MDN platform. I wish they had gone with GitLab, or better yet, hosted their own git system. Using a self-hosted system would have aligned with their values better and they could modify it to use Firefox accounts for login.
