I'm happy that @Gargron is always quick to recommend @pinafore to folks who prefer single-column layouts. I see Pinafore less as a competitor and more as a statement about how it's *possible* to build alternative Mastodon UIs (thanks to Eugen's good API design). #Halcyon and #Brutaldon are also great examples of this.
The Mastodon frontend doesn't have to be all things to all people. We have a wide choice of mobile apps; it should be the same for the web.
