    Same here, here is a list of public instances[1]. Docs link [2].



  • Mobile Ad Blocker Will No Longer Stop YouTube's Ads

    Don't use Youtube without going through a proxy like Invidious [1] or Newpipe

    Don't use {site} Search without going through a proxy like SearxNG [2]

    Don't use TwiXXer without going through a proxy like Nitter - this has gotten more difficult lately but it still works as long as you feed the daemon some registered accounts. Video does not work at the moment but that seems to be fixable.

    Don't use Reddit without going through a proxy like libreddit [4]

    Start noticing the pattern? Maybe it is time to start producing promotional posters:

    The only thing to come between you and ADS could be a proxy / ADS. I'ts just not worth the risk

    ADS / New rules for a sane net / Sane net protects you, your partner and your community

    A proxy here and a filter there, ADS nowhere

    The more you tighten your grip, ${site}, the more viewers will slip through your fingers

    privacy-focused metasearch engines, like SearXNG[1] and 4get[2], should be considered more comprehensive and private than any one index or engine.

    I would recommend

    One of my biggest gripes with Google search these days are it's bad UI. Started using searxng a few years ago when Google made everything above the fold useless videos and dynamically poping in content to accedently click.

  • Google search is losing the fight with SEO spam

    Use a meta-search engine like SearXNG [1] and point it at Google/DDG/Brave/Bing/... and you'll be spared the mediocrity that is all those sponsored results, the profiling, the personalised results (which I consider to be a good thing to leave out, others may disagree) and you'll also start noticing which engine remains quiet on certain queries. You can easily run SearXNG yourself on that same SBC which you got to run your own mail and XMPP server [2], it doesn't take much (if any) maintenance and can - with the Recoll engine - also be used to search your own network.

    Source: I've been doing this for years and made the Recoll engine for SearX.
