Due to the recent anti-trust issues, the recent trend has been mainly for FOSS to become less reliant on huge corporation’s software like Google (read more here) and move to smaller yet trust worthier FOSS alternatives. I am here to propose many alternatives for different Google’s development and analytical software from the FOSS community.
This can have many benefits in the long run. By degoogeling we are becoming less reliant on one corporation’s software. Website users are more pleased to have less potential tracking by corporations. Teverse has more control over what it uses, fewer headaches etc.
Is google trustworthy?
Google has shown countless times that it uses our data with advertisements and shares data with governments. Remember PRISM?
reCAPTCHA is a privacy nightmare. I can’t tolerate having to choose which grids are cross walks over an over again because I use a hardened browser with VPN or TOR. It’s also broken and inefficient.
I propose two different alternatives to reCAPTCHA:
There are plenty more out there, these are some few.
Again, there are many privacy issues with Google Analytics. Open source software shouldn’t be run by corporations designing proprietary software.
Here are 3 alternatives to Google Analytics which are self-hostable. Many are GDPR and CCPA compliant and provide similar features to Google Analytics.
These are some alternatives and there are a lot more here. Maybe consider a different git provider? Plenty of (Trello) kanban board alternatives.
I’m not part of any organization but I do believe this requires attention. Teverse can use different providers other than the most popular ones. This is a huge problem in today’s internet age and it’s becoming worse every day.
