Unfortunately invidious is going away in a month. I was surprised to find out the owner was spending $150/month on servers.
I generally use Brave for a browser, ProtonMail for email, DuckDuckGo or SwissCows for search, and Lbry.tv and Bitchute for video. Got rid of FaceBook a year or two ago. Never thought Twitter was worthwhile to begin with--basically people throwing bumper stickers at each other.
Have to confess, I do use Google and YouTube on occasion -- when I am waiting for something else, it is amusing to search for things I will never, ever buy. Google is trained to think I am in the market for Rolex watches, fancy jewelry, and private jet flights, when in reality I am not. Even if I had the money I would not buy such things. The all-knowing Google thought I might be interested in a Bently yesterday. They even ran ads from the Biden campaign asking for donations--if that ain't hilarious. May seem petty, but if enough people convince Google to advertise things that the viewer will never buy--the advertisers may move on to something else.
Unfortunately, today I got email from Google that my ads are violating Advertising Policies! The problem seems to be that by advocating Bitlocker, Veracrypt or Tor I am (distributing?) malicious or unwanted software!
So I've spoken about this once before in another thread, but I am wondering how many people have become frustrated and infuriated with the amount of times you enter a search topic online and find nearly EVERY listing in the Search to be all about "COVID" even though what you enter in the search has absolutely nothing to do with COVID. There are literally articles flooding away any of the results related more relevantly to the search topic you entered.
That's how powerful the COVID psyop is, and how much AI is integrated in it to manipulate everyone and to tie "COVID" into everyone's way of life.
Every time I see this happens it makes me breathe heavily in frustration and despair. It's sickening how many people can't see through the nonsense in everyday life.
Even if "COVID" were a thing, and even if over 500,000 people in this country died, so what!? There's no way that even if all of that were true that something this ridiculous would dominate every part of people's every day life and thoughts the way it has, and to give me Search Results Like these.
Who else has been losing their mind over these occurrences?
Wow that search results page is gross. What I would expect from a search engine run in someone's garage who is scared of the c'vid.
Google has become pretty bad since early 2016 and in the last 2 years its become remarkably bad. Now always need to minus things they keep forcing into the top results. Besides Covid, not too long ago any news related query would be flooded with anti-Trump articles even if the query wasn't related to Trump at all.
