That's pretty neat.

If you like Audiobooks check out LibriVox which offers free public domain audiobooks that you can download. The books tend to be a bit older but at least there is no DRM.

It's interesting that most of todays browsers have heritage going back to KHTML (by KDE). Chromium, WebKit, Safari, Edge, Brave, Opera, etc. all have some link to it. The only browser I can think of that doesn't currently have KHTML code in it is Firefox.

Water.css is a neat little stylesheet that you can include on your static HTML documents to make them look a bit more modern. It doesn't have any classes, just the tags.

Personally I wouldn't touch the Lyft or Uber IPOs with a ten-foot pole. They're both companies that haven't made any significant profits and are largely reliant on new investor money coming into the business just to stay afloat.

If they do eventually turn around and become profitable then maybe I'd reconsider but I see no reason to rush into a decision by buying at the IPO price. If something is a good investment today it'll still be a good investment in 5 years.
