What's the one thing every web user can do to fight #SurveillanceCapitalism ?

Replace the Google Chrome browser

I've started a new website to send a message to Google that we prefer the internet without them




@jamesmullarkey Another non-Chrome/Blink browser: I've been creating "Odysseus" to explore decentralized means of discovering web pages. It's coming together very nicely!

Or what about GNOME Web?


@alcinnz Nice one I'll have a look at Odysseus possibly GNOME web is a shout too.

I'm made this for civilian non-tech types like my mum primarily. Maybe if they used Firefox for a couple of days they might think "this is fine" and then move on to use DuckDuckGo and so on.

I'm trying to keep it relatively simple at this point to see if I can get any traction.

@jamesmullarkey Far enough.

If you had a "Linux" section, these browsers would fit nicely there. But I can understand if you don't feel that's appropriate.

Packaging for Mac/Windows is a significant step up for us in terms of effort and responsibility because then we do have to bundle the engine rather than just depend on it.

IMHO, #firefox is the only browser that can be set to automatically delete temporary files including cookies upon exit.

Or can others do that as well?

@nurinoas @jamesmullarkey There's Firefox Focus & the browsers it's inspired like elementary's Ephemeral, but otherwise I don't know of any others. These browsers essentially serves to help you curate the browser history you allow into your main browser.

As for my work on Odysseus I'll probably encourage people to install Ephemeral for this feature...

@silmathoron @alcinnz @jamesmullarkey cool tip, thanks!
