If your New Year's Resolution is to de-Google-ify your life a bit, here are some alternatives I use:

Browser: Firefox
Search engine: DuckDuckGo
Email: ProtonMail
Maps: OpenStreetMap
Chat: Telegram
News: Feedly


@roytang i don't know any convenient alternative for the average user. many like nextcloud but it's probably not something the average person wants to install and deal with, other alternative is microsoft office but that has its own problems. libreoffice is great but it's offline. any others?

@markosaric @roytang
For the "average" user who doesn't have complex needs I can thoroughly recommend CryptPad. I use it myself, and have suggested it to others. All good reports, so far.


@markosaric @roytang You don't have to selfhost Nextcloud. Just choose a provider you trust. nextcloud.com/providers/
