Despite a persistent legend, the Chromium web browser is strongly tight with many Google services, and thus is *NOT* ungoogled.
In /e/OS we are using a fully ungoogled Chromium web browser.
On Linux, Mac and Windows, you can use "ungoogled- chromium":

To our #Android #FOSS developers: Anyone who could provide a simple app to decode TNEF – so those "winmail.dat" attachments created by pesky stupid MS Outlook/Exchange could be opened from within e.g. K9 Mail, decode to the PDF (or whatever the attachment really should be), and then offer to open with the appropriate app or save to "disk"?

So far I've only found a single app on Play (low rated and full of trackers). I'd prefer one on @fdroidorg and without trackers. Anyone, please?

Else please boost 😉

Hi all, I moved to another instance:

No problems with @fosstodon whatsoever, just a smaller instance.

Wondering why my database is not getting populated with data...

Queries using singles are only executed when subscribed. I'm so stupid :D

As you may have noticed from recent boosts, @pixelfed now has "remote follows".

In case you're wondering what it is, #Pixelfed is a free open alternative to Instagram, designed for privacy-friendly photo sharing.

You can now follow Mastodon accounts from Pixelfed, and Pixelfed accounts from Mastodon.

Some good servers to sign up on:

Remote follows mean wherever you sign up, you can follow people from other servers 👍
