I was trying to find a great privacy friendly alternative to cloudflare DNS which is also free. I found one - 1984.is/

As per my research it's really great and also works well. But I am open to hear about others too!

Which ones do you prefer? Why or why not?

Only a fool would make a blunder as to reveal such information.

You should probably ditch proprietary note taking apps like Google Keep, MS One note, Evernote, Notion among others.

Here are some open source alternatives.

OpenWrt is a good alternative. Check if your router is compatible. openwrt.org/supported_devices
