Want even more protection? EFF's Privacy Badger extension learns about trackers, then blocks them outright. In Chrome and Firefox, Privacy Badger protects you from cookie tracking as well as more unconventional privacy threats. eff.org/pb

Been hearing a lot about the evolution of the FF logo, but this was unexpected...

@cjd
Anywhere I can find this logo without the background? Would totally use this with my Firedoge installations 😍

@Tutanota
Any disposable email alias thing in the pipeline? I wouldn't want to give my person (Tutanota 😉) email address to a company like this 😅

Clearview's photo database has been declared illegal in the EU & Canada. Yet, the real scandal about Clearview still stands: Individuals must opt out of data abuse - even though they never gave consent. Here we explain how to opt out: tutanota.com/blog/posts/clearv #Fight4Privacy 💪😎

@joaopinheiro
Tried it yes! The person I was trying with just constantly went offline for some reason and wanted calls and group calls as well so we stuck with Signal :)

All systems are up and running again. Tutanota was down for about 30 minutes due to issues with a software update during a scheduled release. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this!

Oh I fully agree with that! I'm just saying that, as long as you can't peek into a server (whether ran by a non-profit, commercial party, volunteer... you name it, you cannot verify anything on the server side so imo, just that its decentralized doesn't mean it should be trusted more on that regard.

I'm a huge signal fan but I'd love to also use Matrix and such.
I just find that it reveals too much metadata and the lack of a sealed sender option...

@praveen
True, but for 99 percent of everyone I know, self hosting isn't an option and then you have to trust the host because they'd (obviously) not let you have a look on the server to check what's actually running on there.
So that basically also comes down to complete trust, but when you add the fact that the host can access all metadata... I surely hope they don't store metadata/messages longer than necessary and provide a sealed sender option.

@praveen
Nice list, only sad to see that end to end encryption and metadata handling aren't included, which are very important regarding messengers.

This is what happens when a tech company becomes too big: bbc.com/news/world-australia-5

#google using its monopoly as a weapon to threaten governments, and making political ads for their own benefits.

@nurinoas
For me Firefox works faster than Chromium and viewing PDF's works just fine.

And I, of course, use a custom configuration ;)

@bjoern
And this is the exact reason why I try to use Chromium-based browsers as little as possible.
Firefox as main browser, Chromium only in case something really doesn't work on Firefox and I really need it.

I don't have a Google account so it wouldn't change much for me but 🖕 Google anyways.
