Delete Chrome. Now.

Google is using its exceptionally powerful position to make *the browser itself* analyze your browsing behavior and serve that on a plate in the form of "cohorts" to anyone interested.

They are transforming Chrome into a "browsing-history-passport" - right now.

If you care about your intellectual freedom even a little bit, you must put Chrome out of your life as soon as possible. Support others doing the same.

Governments and public bodies: don't become victims of vendor lock-in! Public money is better used to support free software and open standards. Look at Dortmund in Germany, where free and open source software is now a standard: blog.documentfoundation.org/bl

KDE Neon introduces Offline Updates: Updates that could affect your running system are not immediately applied, but held until you reboot. Like that, none of your apps will go wobbly just because its config file has been modified in the background.


You should focus more on privacy and security and less on trying to cancel people you don't like.

Let's keep the #GNOME40 celebration going with a brand new release video!

Amazon is forcing delivery drivers to undergo surveillance of their location, movement, and biometric data. And if they don't sign the "consent" form? They are fired.
