Wanna break free from #Google?


Here are some recommendations:

Instead of #gmail, I use #disroot (disroot.org). with #k9 (k9mail.github.io) and #thunderbird (thunderbird.net) as clients.
Instead of #google search, I use #searx (Searx instances), #duckduckgo (duckdukgo.com), and #startpage (startpage.com).
Searx instance FuckOffGoogle.de has the most suggessive name. 😀
I recommend setting it as a default search engine on publicly used computers (at your school, work place, internet caffees, etc.) 😉
Instead of #youtube, I use #peertube (joinpeertube.org) and #invidious (Invidious Instances).
I also use #firefox #addon PeerTubeify to get redirected to peertube if a #video is available from there.
Instead of #googleplus, I use #diaspora (diasporafoundation.org).
Instead of #chrome, I use #icecat (Icecat), #firefox (Firefox), and #tor #browser (torproject.org).
Instead of #chromeos, I use #Parabola #GNU #linux-libre (parabola.nu) and #linuxmint (linuxmint.com).
Instead of google #calendar, I use #nextcloud / #owncloud calendar (nextcloud.com).
Instead of #googledrive, I use #nextcloud and #syncthing (syncthing.net)
Instead of google forms, I use Framaforms.
It is only available in French, which unfortunately I don't speak, but that does not stop me from regularly using it. B-)
Instead of doodle, I use Framadate.
Instead of #android, I use #replicant OS (replicant.us) on a Technoethical S3 phone.
#FSFE has a good website freeyourandroid.org about liberating your device.
Instead of #googleplay, I use #F-Droid (f-droid.org).
If you want to reach all apps from Google Play, I recommend #yalp store (YalpStore), but be warned that most of the apps there are not #free-software.
Instead of #googlemaps, I use #openstreetmap (openstreetmap.org).
Instead of google street view, I use #mapillary (mapillary.com).
For text #chat, I use #xmmp with my #disroot account, with pix-art messanger #fork of #conversations (Conversations) on mobile and gajim on desktop.
For video chat, I use #jitsi (jitsi.org).
#Framasoft and #diroot offers plenty of other great services. See degooglisons-internet.org/en/l… and disroot.org/en/#_white-bar
Finally, I recommend you to spread/share your desire, successes and difficulties (both online and offline) of getting free from Google and #GAFAM ( #Google, #Apple, #Facebook, #Amazon, #Microsoft) in general.

What did I missed? What is you favourite alternative? and why? #freesoftware #foss #floss #open-source #opensource #linux #gnu-linux #fdroid #technoethical #mobile #software #privacy #surveillance #freedom
