Privacy-friendly YouTube frontends

Published on in 🔗 Links

When I watch YouTube videos on my Android phone, I almost always use the NewPipe app. It offers a privacy-friendly experience, protects me from ads, and offers a few more options that you would only get with YouTube Premium (downloading video or audio, for example).

When the use of JavaScript is justified

Published on in ✍️ Posts

JavaScript is a controversial topic, especially in privacy and open source circles. That’s because JavaScript is often used to execute code on website visitors' devices that does things that aren’t so cool. For example, tracking users across the entire Internet. That’s why the use of ad blockers is actually indispensable nowadays, and some go so far as to block JavaScript altogether.
