Removed Comment If you’re interested in the concept behind Tox, I’d recommend taking a look at Jami. Tox’s development has been sporadic at best and I wouldn’t trust it to be a viable solution long-term. Jami runs with the same concept but has multi-device support and is backed by/part of the GNU project so it probably has more staying power. That being said, it’s still (like Tox) not very user friendly at this point. by @unnecessarily reason: duplicated comment

Removed Comment I hope this doesn't come across negatively, but I don't agree with most points you've made. I am interested in your response though as maybe I misunderstood your points or I'm incorrect on something. - **Instances do not obfuscate your IP**: many privacy friendly front ends do indeed hide your IP address from the original service by default. Majority of the others will hide your IP from the original service provider with a change of settings. By using these front ends, you're shifting your trust from the big tech companies to whoever is hosting the front end instance you're using. For some/many people, keeping their IP address and usage habits hidden from the big tech companies is sufficient for their threat model. - **Honeypot**: this is a very similar point to the first point **instances do not obfuscate your IP**. Again, users are shifting trust from big tech to instance owner. If the users self host the instance, then the risk is further reduced to just trusting the repo maintainer(s). - **not configured to use privacy related settings by default**: from what I've seen, even the default settings of all/most privacy front ends are better than using the original service. By using the alternative front ends, you're limiting/eliminating the ability for the original service provider from running tracking, analytics, etc. software on your machine. For example, YouTube may know that your IP address accessed a particular music video, but they won't know which of the recommended videos you hovered over or for how long you hovered over them. YouTube won't know if it was played in the foreground or background. It won't know if you repeated a particular part of the song 30 times and it may not even know that you watched the music video on repeat for 2 hours (assuming the front end cached the video and didn't request the video each time it was played). YouTube is also much less likely to definitely know that you were the one who accessed the music video and it wasn't your friend, family member, or guest that shared the same IP since you're not signed into YouTube and it's less likely that YouTube could gather additional information about your machine. So while the default settings for many of the privacy front ends may not truly be private from the original service, it's most likely much more private (from the original service provider) than using the original service directly. - **propaganda reasons**: I don't understand this point. All the privacy front ends are doing in most cases is acting as a proxy for you to access content on the original service provider. If propaganda exists on YouTube, then you can access it directly from YouTube or from the privacy front end of your choice. I assume you mean the protections (eg - notices that the information may not be credible) that the original service providers implement may not be seen on the privacy front end. If so, then you may have a point here if the privacy front ends are capturing and relaying that information to the end user. However, I'm not sure how this relates to privacy. - **Installing more software and alternatives increase the risks**: that statement is true, but it also deals more with security than privacy. Additionally, the other points require many assumptions. Are the alternative front ends always installed on the user's machine? If so, are they always installed in addition to instead of in replacement of the original service provider's apps? Does every user of alternative front ends also install additional browser extensions? You could also argue that the extended footprint isn't too bad as it doesn't modify what content or how content is displayed and only changes where it's displayed from. Additionally, if more people used these extensions, then you're more likely to share your footprint with others. Many of the privacy friendly front ends don't support logging into the original service so tasks like uploading, posting, etc. are not an issue for those front ends. - **Some alternative Services and alternatives are highly controversial**: I'm not claiming to be an expert on this topic, but I haven't seen much (or any at all honestly) discussion about any alternative front end being controversial. The closest I've seen to that is which front end is better (eg - Teddit or Libreddit) or which alternative service is better (eg - Mastodon vs Plemora vs Lemmy vs Pixelfed, etc.). I'm not familiar with Odysee though so I definitely have some more research to do. The other points you made here though are just reiterating the other points you made previously. It sounds like you're saying "well, every single privacy alternative front end doesn't protect my privacy 100%, even though most protect my privacy 75% or better by default, and some introduce potential new risks, which in many cases could be mitigated, so no one should consider using any privacy friendly alternative front ends" or even "protecting my privacy 100% is too hard so its better that I do nothing". Protecting your privacy 100% is **extremely** difficult (if not impossible), but it doesn't mean you and others shouldn't do things (like using privacy friendly front ends) to marginally improve your privacy - especially if it just means navigating to one URL instead of another. by @rhymepurple reason: Bullshit, learn to read https://docs.invidious.io/FAQ.md

Removed Comment I've used both for multiple years. Desktop environments make a lot of one off tasks easy and straight forward e.g.: set mouse acceleration, media keys configuration, suspend working properly etc etc. The list isn't short but if you are comfortable with learning or with a lot of the ins and outs of Linux you'll be fine duplicating the experience with a tiling window managers. I use i3 and ulauncher to replace the take at flow. With a bunch of stuff in my i3 config to make the other things start up and work the way I want. I don't see switching back to a full on Desktop Environment again. You can also try both of heard people be very happy with regolith which combines i3 and gnome but I have limited experience there. by azron reason: Not an option.
