Yeah, thanks for that info! I love Brave and Iridium chromium-based projects. But anyway I prefer using firefox

Chrome is big tech😥

I didn’t find anything weird in their privacy policy, but anyway, their message is contradictory. They said in the About Us page:

We fight for policy victories that make the biggest difference for the people who are most affected.

And yeah, you can implement Do Not Track and whatever, but what happen to people who don’t know it? In my country most people doesn’t even care about their digital privacy. We are not under CCPA or GDPR protection, I think if you know how nowadays works, you must know the privacy problem is not just DNT, and if you are using Google services you are necessarily giving money to them.

I saw some discussion in the NekoX update chat group where some people said it was a privacy thing, claming for e2ee and things like that, but with e2ee it would be de-optimization of the telegram cloud and device sync. So i don’t know, i still consider telegram private, and if you are really into digital neutrality you should know there is a difference between privacy and anonymity. They said things like: telegram is crap and wants to fuck us because it hasn’t have options to log in without a phone number, but it would be certainly impractical.

What do you think about Fight for the Future?

I’ve seen The Internet Defense League is nos Fight for the Future. I’ve seen their page and I found it really interesting. Some privacy-focused companies like DuckDuckGo, Tron and a huge number of VPN companies have donated money to them. But something called my attention: they said they use Google …
