Remember that you can use the "Advanced Web Interface", accessible from your Mastodon account settings, for a TweetDeck-like interface on desktop!
This makes it way easier to see stuff at a glance. If it isn't your thing though, you don't need to use it.
Also note that you can adjust which columns are pinned, so if your local and federated timelines move too quickly, you can just unpin them to only see Home and Notifs, or only open them up manually when you want to see them!
Boost this so people can be made aware!

Unfortuantely I won't be sticking with it. Why? My main reason for installing it was the new mail client, which reminded me of the old #Mozilla and #opera browsers. Alas, the mail client doesn't work the way I need it to, and there are lots of forum posts about problems with it...

Instead of typing in the URL, get the FxQRL extension that shows you a QR code of the current tab’s URL and aim your phone’s camera at it.
