New application: Kan Jag Duscha? (Can I take a shower?)

Due to the rising energy prices I have changed my Electricity supplier here in southern Sweden (Tibber) to one that bills me based on what the electricity costs when I actually use it (hourly), and that also has an API. So.. with an API comes the responsibility of making use of it of course.

I made this small application / website to tell me if its a good idea to take a shower or to wait, based on the electricity price right now.

Of course it only makes sense to you if you live in southern Sweden and have the same Electricity deal as I have, but if you do, this might be useful 🙂

Why Firefox is my prefered browser

I use a few browsers on my different desktops and I normally don’t really care what I’m using. The standard is pretty high when it comes to browsers and even the bad ones are good. But there is a browser I always get back to, and that is Firefox.

Although writing this little post about it gave me an opportunity to tweet  Tweet about Firefox crashingthat Firefox crashed a lot today, I won’t mind. It usually doesn’t (and has just had a major upgrade).

But the main reason is that it is cross platform, and that the plugins are just so good (Pocket and Evernote mostly).

I don’t use many plugins, but those I have integrate well (on all platforms I use) and the browser does actually feel faster on my mac than Chrome. Then the fact that it’s very developer friendly is a big plus.

But the main reason is the fuzzy feeling of control and trust. Mozilla isn’t selling my data, and they work actively to make the web a little bit more secure.
That really matters.
