The fact that we can have multiple open source operating systems but not one open source fully fledged browser that is not tied to a company worries me. The web truly has gotten way too complex.

Dear fellow Fediversarians.
It's up to us to make this place great, it's going to take effort and time, but we can do it.
Also, it's our responsibility to make this place better than FB and Birbsite.

Finally moved away from Discord, Twitter, and all that bullshit! The only struggle now is to convince my friends to join me here..

So many people saying they're switching from Firefox. Won't this only make the problem worse?

If you're switching to Brave or qutebrowser or UnGoogled Chromium or something, you're only strengthening Google's monopoly. If you're switching to a Webkit-based browser like Epiphany, you're shifting the monopoly towards Safari, whose parent company doesn't consider the Web a priority.

That Mozilla has bad management doesn't change the fact that Firefox is the most viable option for the open web.

I just found this great privacy research and tech channel on that I feel a lot of people would appreciate:)

Take a look and show him some love

@sunknudsen

This is exactly the use case I was describing just recently. Single-user peertube instances for the greatest control meanwhile being part of the larger network.

Spin one up:)

OnionShare

onionshare.org/

"Securely and anonymously share files of any size. A web server is started, making OnionShare accessible as a Tor Onion Service, potentially temporarily or in a stealthy manner, over the Internet. An unguessable address is generated and is shared for the recipient to open in the Tor Browser to download the files. No separate server or third party file-sharing service required. You host the files on your own computer."

#tor #filesharing #cyberlocker #hosting

There's a GUI, but the CLI is so good, just `onionshare somestuff.bin` and you get a temporary onion service serving a static password protected website with the file made available. By default once the file has been downloaded, everything shuts down.

Congrats @sylvia_ritter for such beautiful artwork being included in Ubuntu Groovy Gorilla!
