I can highly recommend Posteo. I have been using it for several years. It costs 12€ a year, but in my opinion that is a rather ridiculous amount to really think twice. In addition, you also get 2 alias email addresses. And if you don’t want to have a “xyz@posteo.de” address you can also choose to have e.g. a “@posteo.net” or “@posteo.com” email.


here is the link to the original German news.

A translated quote from the article:

“With this resolution, city policy claims the shaping of municipal digital sovereignty and digital participation for itself. The resolution means a reversal of the burden of proof in favour of open source software and at the expense of proprietary software. In the future, the administration will have to justify why open source software cannot be used for every proprietary software application. Based on the report of the Dortmund city administration on the investigation of the potentials of Free Software and Open Standards, Open Source Software is understood in the sense of Free Software.”

tl;dr

"In the future, the administration will have to justify why open source software cannot be used for every proprietary software application. "

this is the most important part. i hope this example will inspire many other cities>

At first glance after checking the Network log of NetGuard, this app calls the normal Reddit site. So your IP will be shared.


I would recommend Firefox with uBlock Origin as add-on. If they use Linux (probably not but, maybe there are some) install them LibreWolf. It is a FOSS fork of Firefox and comes nativity with uBlock Origin.

Edit: added links to comment.


what he is saying. To quote the user MiscreantMuse:

"For anyone who isn’t aware, Brave Browser is run by a terrible person .

It is also funded by Peter Thiel, the billionaire ‘conservative nationalist’ financing Facebook, Palantir Technologies, and the most egregious fascists in the Republican Party."

I would recommend vs codium. it is practically the same thing as vs code but open source and without the telemetry nonsense.


Here is the link to the download page as a small quality of live improvment

I'm looking for a FOSS alamclock app with puzzles.

up to now I were using the app Alarm clock extreme. But I dislike that it uses very many trackers. …
