Edited to fix the audio sync issue, add captions, chapters, and links to all the mentioned tools, etc.

Enjoy + please share! :)

Have you taken a look at "about:protections" in #mozilla #Firefox?

My question is should I uninstall #privacybadger and/or #uBlockOrigin for better performance due redundancy of this services with built-in firefox tools?

I my case Firefox reports 610 trackers blocked this last week and I can see addons also reporting their sh*t as usual. Are they complementary?

What's your opinion? Thanks

Do you use uBlock Origin? Did you know that you can use the Better Blocker block list on it?

Just add the rules from here:


PS. If you have other rule sets, I’d recommend not mixing them as we go to great pains to ensure that we don’t break sites while protecting your/our privacy. If you are mixing rulesets, we can’t help you if things break :)

The Blender #peertube instance has been updated to the latest version which now means it federates again, yeah!!



THIS IS THE SMALLEST THING WE CAN DO to show them that they should support alternatives!

There's been a much more activity in the comments, and follows. YOU'RE AWESOME!

Promote it, boost the videos so others know it exists, and let them know on official channels (blender.today, blenderartists.org etc.) that it's a great idea.

Surveillance capitalism is the same as climate change, but for data:

- Some people have been warning about its consequences for years
- Most people don't care because they don't feel concerned, they can't see it affecting them
- A few companies are making a lot of damage with the help of governments
- When we will face the consequences it will be too late
- We can still do something about it, and the sooner the better
