Viewing 7 software things

The Brave Browser lion logo

Brave Browser

software

Brave is my current cross-device browser of choice. It claims to be three times faster than chrome, have better privacy by default than Firefox, and use 35% less battery on mobile. Brave uses Chromium under the hood, so the dev tools are familiar.

The f.lux logo

softwareproductivity

f.lux is an essential application for me — it's one of the first things I install on a new machine. I have pretty sensitive eyes and f.lux ensures that I am shielded from too much blue light throughout the day and late at night.

The Miro Logo

Miro

softwareproductivity

I started using Miro in 2020 as a replacement for physical whiteboards when the world started working remotely. Whilst it's not a perfect replacement for the real thing, if you want cloud-collaborative software that's capable of visualising ideas and concepts in a digital space, or if you just want to stick a load of post-it notes somewhere, Miro is fantastic.

I've used Spectacle for years — it's one of the first apps I install on a new machine. It's unobtrusive, easy to use, and easy to configure.
