Opinion: I think Mullvad working with the Tor Project to make the new Mullvad Browser is a positive because it means that this new browser will almost definitely have great privacy protections without having to tweak settings in `about:config` like you do with regular Firefox.

Opinion: Seems to make sense to roll out this update so people are aware if they should expect extreme heat in their area.

Just like Twitter Blue I don’t think this will work.

I am sure many people will be excited by this new Civilization game

Nice to hear another German state is trying open source software.

It appears Google might be finally making all their Hangouts users switch to Google Chat.

Yeah they aren’t the most trustworthy company when it comes to privacy.

Mastodon hasn’t had mainstream success and is mainly people used by open source tech enthusiasts and people care about their privacy.

Hell its even known to use mastodon code illegally.

Truth Social’s code is open source. It uses elements of Mastodon and Soapbox.

No I don’t think so. It reaching that internally is quite rare, but many people use their Switch in portable mode.

Wow finally! Well I am not even on there anymore but I guess this new update is good for creators.

Yeah I am switching to Linux soon. First, I need to build my own PC though

Delta Chat is really cool. I love how it takes the universal standard of email and allows you to use it for short form messages. Although, I haven’t really used Delta recently.

Although, LG stopped making phones so you will have to buy a used one.

Matrix does have some metadata problems (not hating on Matrix though)

Cool although I haven’t been on Matrix in a while. I am probably going to start using it more soon though.

Yeah bromite is also a good browser option on mobile but it is based on Chromium

Yep it is crazy how much control they have over what apps are on iOS

Yep, Fennec on Android is great (I use it) and on desktop I use Librewolf.

I did forget to mention that Brave are now doing Brave search so that could be interesting to see where that goes.

Bing often removes websites from their index but this does seem very weird. I don’t know why Bing would remove a privacy blog from their search results but this also shows how so many search engines are dependent on Bing or Google for results. The only search engine which isn’t dependent on Bing or Google right now seems to be Mojeek and Metager (Searx is just a meta-search engine). Mojeek is probably the most promising but right now it’s results aren’t the best but the results have been getting better. But I do wish that DuckDuckGo indexed search results themselves so they don’t have to deal with Microsoft’s decisions (also being reliant on big tech to start with isn’t a good thing for a independent privacy-focused search engine.
