I don't know about you, but I'm addicted to Reddit. I permanently keep Reddit's website opened in a separate tab in my browser. And when I'm on the move, I use the Diode Reddit Browser app.
A whole "department" of Reddit was demoted this week, with the /r/Technology subreddit being removed from the Reddit homepage and the default subreddit subscription feed. Earlier today I spoke to Reddit General Manager Erik Martin about the process of demoting subreddits as a form of punishment for mismanagement.
Anyone who has had their website get some traction on Reddit knows that it truly lives up to its “front page of the Internet” label — the kind of traffic the site drives can be remarkable. But the process by which a link takes off on the site is still pretty mysterious.
Reddit has thus far kept its promise to ban amateur manhunts. The site has today banned a community forum, known as a subreddit, which attempted to crowdsource the search for the gunman who opened fire at the Washington Naval Yard on Monday.
Reddit is a major Internet hub that's home to lots of awesome communities, and it's always been very supportive of computer user freedom. In 2008, its admins took the admirable step of freeing the vast majority of its codebase, which was a significant contribution to the free software world.
I use this extension called Website Blocker to discourage me from checking Gmail/Reddit. However, it is easy and tempting to open a New Incognito Window; since extensions are disabled in Incognito Mode, I'm still able to browse Gmail/Reddit in this manner.
Is there any way to disable Chrome's Incognito Mode in Ubuntu?
