Look how far we've come
It’s here, reporters! The last month of a decade that has been tumultuous, to say the least.
I think we’re all gearing up for some chilling out, so we’ll d something chill today: What was a cool or innovative tool back in 2010? A lot of them are long dead, and a lot of mainstays hadn’t been invented yet.

Google Chrome - can you believe this didn’t come out til 2008? (from someone I can’t remember, sorry dude)
Oh how far we’ve come, for better or worse. If you’re looking for new, actually usable tools, check out the Tools for Reporters Top Tools of 2019.
Happy New Year, reporters! TFR will see you in 2020. 🥂
