You want to break with old habits? Getting used to use a new search engine, online translator, etc. can be really hard. I just learned about , a nice and extension which allows you to block certain URLs or forward them. You can set up rules like "forward google.com to startpage.com" or "forward translate.google.com to deepl.com". Now every time your bad habit kicks in, your browser will remind you what you really want to do. 😀 proginosko.com/leechblock/

@bjoern Is Deepl.com a good alternative? I've been trying to find basically any alternative to Google Translate. The only Google service I still exclusively use. :(

@hund I like the quality of the translations of deepl.com. In my erperience it it much better than Google translator. Honestly I didn't looked that much into the data protection policies and so on. Definitely on my ToDo. For now quality and diversity are the main reasons I use Deepl.com instead of Google translator.
