Alternative tech suggestions Anonymous 01/30/2022 (Sun) 15:26:41 [Preview] No. 14940
Question: Is there an alternate site or tool to use twitter? Preferably one that doesn't use JavaScript. Twitter's not letting me scroll eternally and is asking me to sign in to continue.

Any more tech tools or suggestions are welcome here.

Maybe the popup and cover can be disabled via css.

Use nitter to browse.
Try to avoid using services like twitter. The FSF is a little soft for twitter (in comparison to platforms like facebook or youtube) but this is not good enough reason to use it. You can try interact on the fediverse like diaspora and mastodon but eh. Be very suspicious of any websites that ask you to install software or run JS to function. I'd suggest using such sites in disposable VMs (qubes). You should take extra caution as you never know if a server is owned by or is now being operated by a glow in the dark.

I would say Nitter, that is what I use. It's available on Android's F-Droid store.

I don't use TOR though

Tried it. Sometimes accounts and posts don't show up

Youtube alt site if anyone's interested. It's FOSS

Privacy Redirect is a pretty solid addon for automatically using those lightweight open source front ends like nitter (twitter) and invidious(youtube) as well as many others.
As far as search engines go, I really like Searx. Its great at what it does, has lots of customization, and is open source. Being able to host your own instance is important to tech schitzos with tinfoil hats at least 5 layers deep.YACY is a true decentralized p2p search engine and I like it conceptually but as far as disseminating information its not anywhere nearly on par with the centralized ones.
https://encyclopedia.marginalia.nu Is a high-readability wikipedia mirror I prefer using and https://search.marginalia.nu/ is a cute alternative search engine designed to help discover older and more obscure websites you wouldn't otherwise find in a typical google search.

Try using Mastodon, and any website inside the Fediverse. They're all somewhat good.

this one looks pretty good. How many people are using it?
