And OF COURSE I'm using podcastindex.org!
@realcaseyrollins It's a firefox build I believe
@realcaseyrollins It's bare bones, just a browser, no bells and whistles, but definitly blocking 99.999% of trackers (it's hard to block all because of your device/browser "fingerprint")
@realcaseyrollins Has a "Fireproof" button that deletes all browsing data on the fly
@realcaseyrollins You can also have a timer to delete all data if not in use, so a timeout function to delete browser data, or set it to delete the data when you close a tab or exit
@johoshua oooh nice!
@johoshua you've got better principles than me. I can't quit YouTube because there are real television programs there that aren't political, and I want to see them and unfortunately they are married to the platform.
Maybe some day I'll cut it off.
@progo I was surprised at how much Bitchute has grown. Most of the people I followed on Youtube are there as a backup as they are practically near getting booted from Youtube anyways.
@progo Just use ad blockers and don't give them your tracking data that's where they make money from you.
@johoshua There's a new wave of banner ads trying to attack you and install malware. Everyone must use an ad blocker. I don't make a distinction between Google ads on YouTube and any other system; I install Ublock Origin and forget about it.
@progo I use Brave on my computer w/ Ghostery, AdBlockPlus, NoScript, http Secure, ect...
@progo Privacy Badger as well
@progo You know what's crazy is I haven't seen an ad in over 2 years. I paid for YouTube Premium but the crap that happened this weekend in LA then my "friends" saying "I need to be put on a no hang out list" because I posted the BLM attacking the hospital was the last straw.
@johoshua sorry that happened to you. A few months ago my wife got called out for being white and for not doing enough racist affirmative action in her theater productions a few years ago.
I quit Facebook a few years ago simply because I wasn't allowed to control my feed, nor allowed to pull it from an API and attempt to control it locally.
@johoshua just call it "civil war". and history will place the flashpoint some time more than a month or two ago.
@johoshua somewhere on my todo list is to do that in Mastodon. At least nothing is preventing me from doing it. I want feed buckets and auto-sorting, probably involving email-style Bayesian filtering. And FFS I want read/unread flags.
@johoshua Welcome to Level 1 of the True Internet (tm). Level 2: set up your own email server. Level 3: Get your HAM license (Wait! How did that get on the list!?!)
