#Mozilla begrudgingly implements tracking protection by default, after being shamed into it yet again by Safari, the DuckDuckGo browser, and Gnome Web (just the ones I know who implemented it first) and talks a good talk while still having Google as its default search engine and continuing to get hundreds of millions from Google/Alphabet, Inc. – the largest surveillance capitalist in the world. (Mozilla Corp is ~entirely funded by surveillance capitalism.)
@aral I think, we should decentralize the search.
We need a p2p general-purpose search engine with our own crawlers, written in something native and efficient (like Rust) so that anyone can install and run their own copy, and, importantly, with clean and easy UX plus the name snappier than Google.
DuckDuckGo, good as they may be now, are still a central organization.
Sometime, google had "don't be evil" motto too.
@alcinnz and also mind you, I'm not talking about building stuff just for me or you. We are what they call "Internet natives", we know the tricks of the trade of being online, Proxies, VPNs, TOR, we can get around just fine. But that doesn't solve the systemic problem. I'm talking about building stuff that is sufficiently safe, secure, private, and which an average Joe can use. Yes, the masses. Those who don't know a file from a pile. Your mom and dad and the guy that serves you drinks every Friday. We gotta take them away from big G and get them on our side which means we have to give them what they have with Google but better. Only then things are starting to get interesting. @aral
