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 I am searching for a good replacer for Google Translate and was thrilled when you mantioned DeepL. But when I tested their engine, I got deeply disappointed. I'll keep searching...

@e_edgren It only supports a handful of languages at the moment.

@botherder I sw that, but do you know how new the DeepL is?
