The final push to start using Firefox over Chrome on Android might finally be thanks to the enormous selection of add-ons (Firefox’s version of extensions) coming out next month. Chrome doesn’t offer native support for extensions in its mobile app. Also, better security.

      Yes, I remember hearing something about this.

      I wonder if there’s a way to federate a search engine. I wonder what that would even look like. Federating indices/results but allowing users to search from whatever instance they want? Maybe?

      Maybe that’s an okay use case for federation or maybe not, but clearly we need to move away from centralised search engines because they always get corrupted by greed.

      I understand your concern, this is actually why I dropped Ecosia (because they got closer to Microsoft)

      It’s worth mentioning that DDG has since distanced themselves from Microsoft after the blow back, so while Ecosia got closer, DDG (AFAIK from the documentation I read) no longer has any partnerships in place. I don’t get paid either way, so it doesn’t matter to me but just FYI
