@chonky here's a separate thread for that: %XV9X0wZ....

MetaMask significantly popularized the concept of a web extension for performing cryptographic operations and transactions, facilitating interaction with a decentralized network, and enabling web sites ("dApps") to prompt the user to perform such operations, forming a "Web3 ecosystem".

Does anyone here know of and/or recommend any FLOSS "Web3 wallets"?

FLOSS vs. Proprietary thread

Why would MetaMask make this change? The simple answer is that the project needs a way to sustain itself. Open source development is frequently thankless work, and while some exceptions certainly exist, there generally aren't great business models available for purely open source projects. As a result, most popular modern source infrastructure projects are funded and controlled by large corporate entities.

they are running out of cash which is the lifeblood of dev. They are trying to make the only sane move.

I think FOSS dogmatists don't care about ideals, they just want free stuff. I hope this comes to an end super quickly and helps us engineers to build a saner, fairer world for everybody. 🌴

MetaMask is no longer #floss, since August 2020.

The call was not attended. We can proceed asynchronously for now I guess. I will try to give a written update later.
