I consider both Markor and NewPipe absolutely essential to my workflow. I am actually surprised no one mentioned these two earlier. Good suggestions.

I have been using Brave Search for a while now to try it out a bit before I go back to other search engines. As far as I can say, the results are actually pretty good. Cannot say that much about its privacy and other aspects of it as I have not had time to delve much deeper into Brave Search yet, but the results can pleasantly surprise, in my opinion.

That is an interesting suggestion. I have never encountered anything wrong with FairMail, but I will look into it now, as I have not been exactly looking for it. This one seems as a nice FLOSS alternative from the looks of things. I do not like that it has not been updated in 10 months as of now, though. Still suitable to at least consider it nonetheless.

I find FairMail better suited for my needs, too, but both are great e-mail clients with extensible customizability. It is up to your preferences, I suppose.

For differences between Syncthing and Syncthing-Fork, see Syncthing-Fork repository description. All in all, nothing major, but I use the fork nonetheless and I am content with what I get.

Wonderful. Looking forward to the next updates.

Could you provide some link to this Loop app you mention? I cannot find this app anywhere as search queries return way too much additional unrelated results.

Now, that is really strange. Is maybe your sudo already an alias for doas by any chance? Could you run the following in your terminal, for example?

$ which sudo

It should either say sudo: aliased to doas, or something like /usr/bin/sudo. The former would confirm my suspicions, that you have sudo aliased to doas already, the latter would mean you call the normal sudo command.

Is it? How did you manage to change the password request format from [sudo] password for <user>: to Password:? Because the Password: format is exactly what doas uses.

I believe it is an alias for doas instead because of the formatting of the password request. But basically, yes, it seems to be an alias to either of these programs.

The link to project bluesky points to the same page as Prosocial Design Network’s page link. Is that intentional? I suppose that is just a copy error. Where was the project bluesky supposed to point to?

From the logo description provided by the linked website:

I tried to create a logo for the Fediverse which is a compound word (Federation and Universe) and a common territory to a federation of servers. The underlying idea is that the human being when he discovers a new virgin territory plants his flag. The flag is also used to symbolize membership in a group, here it is the federation.

Exactly, as you say. Another lesson learned for the author today, I suppose.

I mean, that is not surprising at all. I am kinda a little amused by (but mainly sad about) how bewildered the article author seems to be by Facebook actions against their post about a “Facebook alternative” social network.

AddatoasklemmyGNU/Linux distro

ArcoLinux, an easy-to-install and fun Arch-based rolling GNU/Linux distribution with freedom of choice… of everything. I have been using Linux Mint in the past, too.

Little late to the party as I have been away for a few days without the internet connection, but these are some great news. Again, I am glad I have found out about Lemmy. Job well done, if I say so myself. Thank you. Loving it here immensely.

AddatoBrowsersWhat browser do you use?

Mull does the same what LibreWolf does with Firefox. It takes the current Fennec release, changes some configurations to make the browser more private, disables some privacy-invasive features of Fennec and adds some privacy-oriented features of Tor Uplift project. In general, both Mull and LibreWolf are just hardened forks of the current release of Firefox (Fennec) with proprietary parts of the browser removed. See Mull GitLab repository to learn more about what exactly is changed.

Definitely :-) Although, as far as I know, LibreWolf works great on Windows, too (no Mac build, if I remember correctly, though). The same goes for Tor Browser or Ungoogled Chromium. and Mull or Bromite can be used on multiple mobile phone OSs as well. Support for keyboard-driven browsers tends to be a bit trickier on any non-GNU/Linux OSs from what I recall.
