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.
If you really want to help Firefox succeed, file a bug on https://webcompat.com/ when you find a broken website. Don't just switch back to Chrome; let Mozilla know there's a problem so they can try to fix it.
When browsers lose market share, they fall into the "compatibility death spiral." Sites don't bother to test, they break, and users flee to the browser that "just works." Mozilla is fighting this battle every day, and it just got harder.

@dthompson no possibility to mirror to peertube or something similar? Hate to miss out on cuteness, but can't bring myself to unblackhole fb's domains
So there was a big protest today by schoolkids who blew off school and marched in the streets over government inaction on climate change.
The Prime Minister has said they should be less activist and focus on their schooling instead.
I just saw this sign. These kids are great.
