I just learned that in GNOME Shell if you have two windows "snapped" to each side of the screen (left + right, taking 50% width for each) you can resize BOTH windows at the same time, adjusting the ratio of screen!
This is great for my side-by-side video call window and ZimWiki notes workflow (I like more space for notes ;) )!

I don't consent to downloading, executing or viewing your ads. You are not entitled to my time, my attention, my computer.
I don't care how much you want the money. How much you say you need it. If you don't want me freeloading, put a paywall; I might not pay, but I don't object to being denied a webpage. I object to ads.
There are no acceptable or ethical ads. Ads are distractions, annoyances, disruptions. They interfere with people's work, fun, mental health.
