  • .............. ANd... saving to Chrome as opposed to hard drive is supposed to be preferable, because... WHY!?...

    I avoid using Chrome with its mandatory uncontrollable updates as much as possible, preferring to stick witth Firefox. And I don't want copies backed up on cloud or via a wifi connection; it's too risky for the data to get lost or corrupted. As it is, C3 relies too much on internet for my taste; I only use it because its documentation is so prolific on Youtube. I'd rather have something offline so I don't have to wrestle with wifi or stupid browsers all the damn time, but.

    Is this some sort of Big Brother thing? Selling a bad feature as a good feature by pure brute force of phrasing, as- what, a psychological test? A secret government regulation thing? The chocolate rations "raised", not LOWERED to 20 grams a week? Like with Ableton and various other softwares, just changing to impress it on the public users that our tools are not our own, in reality?

  • Wait, what?

    This is to be able to save directly to hard drive rather than use the file api.

    Actually, I'd say this is a much safer save options. If you only have a local copy, you have a single point of failure - you risk losing your work in the event of software failure, hardware failure, theft, fire, flood etc. Cloud save is available on any device and many cloud services also have built-in backups, e.g. restoring a file to any time in the past 30 days. If you have important work I'd highly recommend setting up at least a backup to a cloud service.
