@lig Oh, really sorry about that. :blobcatsadpats:
TBlock is a system-wide ad-blocker that uses the hosts file to block adservers. It is compatible with a lot of filter formats, like Adblock Plus, dnsmasq, hosts, etc.
It also has a built-in filter converter, to help users easily convert their filters.

Please, if you have a bot, make it post in unlisted rather than in public. There is so many bots posting in public now that the federated timeline is becoming unusable.
I don’t usually ask that, but can you boost this to spread awareness?

How satisfying is it to rewrite some old code that was full of , and to actually write pretty good code over it ? :git:

Just started to rewrite the code of @tblock . Maybe a big update next month ? :blobcatthinkingsmirk:

What do you think about ?

It is a hardened fork and it can be downloaded using , but can I trust it ?

I installed and it's awesome. The launcher I was using before (Trebuchet) was great, but it was slow sometimes. I don't have this problem anymore. Plus, the search feature is really great, it reminds me the search bar on a GNOME desktop, with the ability to search web, contacts, apps, etc.

Vim + pandoc > LibreOffice > Shitty proprietary microsoft office 365/keynote, pages, etc.

Between and F-Droid, which one would you recommend me to use ?

I am forced by my studies to use proprietary software.

I went to my director after sending him a long letter, and I told him that I didn't want a MS account, and other shitty stuff like that.
I also told him that I was very careful about my privacy online, and that I was using Linux at home to avoid using tech giants, which are also ruining our environment and forcing children to work (in cobalt mines for example).

But he told me I didn't have a choice.

When a website says "we collect data through cookies, like every single website ever," do not be fooled by their deception!

Cookies were meant for login sessions and user preferences. Only later did they start being used for collecting data by the server. The Internet may be full of abusers, but do not let them convince you that abuse is the only way.
