Kolide ensures only secure devices can access your cloud apps.
It’s Zero Trust for Okta.
Hursh Agrawal, cofounder of The Browser Company (makers of the upstart browser Arc, which for now is Mac-only):
We’re sprinting hard to get Arc onto Windows in 2023 — exact timing still 🤐!
His tweet has a two-minute video that outlines a tremendously ambitious plan:
If they pull it off, they’ll ship a toolchain to develop cross-platform Mac/Windows apps, programmed in Swift using VSCode. I have my doubts about whether this is possible from a small team, and I have different doubts about whether this would be a good way to write good Mac apps. So I’d ignore this for now — but for the fact that Arc itself is very interesting, and very much real.
It’s not for me, but it really has a bunch of innovative, original ideas for a web browser. They’ve proven that they can ship. So I say godspeed.
