I released a new version of my Firefox extension that will forcefully redirect you away from privacy erosive services to better alternatives. It started as a joke, but I end up actually using it.

When I want to look up a place, I instinctively and mechanically start typing "maps.googl...". This extension will instead take me to OpenStreetMaps. It will also functionally translate Google Search links to DuckDuckGo and Google Translate links to Deepl.

@botherder So what does it redirect Facebook and Twitter links to?
And YouTube (it could use #invidious…)?

@rugk Facebook to DuckDuckGo searches about its scandals, Twitter to Mastodon and YouTube to nothing currently. I’m open to suggestions to make it more functional.

@botherder @rugk For Facebook could be Diaspora and MeWe, are more secure alternatives and are pretty similar to facebook ( Profiles, friends, groups and the timeline)
