So, we all agree monopolies are bad, especially when it comes to companies who know everything you do.

I switched to duckduckgo.com for the last few months, and for the most part they kick ass.

I only switch to google.ca for local weird shit I'm looking for.

I recommend you do as well.

What do you use for a browser?

I'm using Edge on Android, default search engine is Bing which seems to do the trick. Browser has a pretty good ad blocker built in. Chrome started crashing anytime I opened the keyboard. Tried multiple different ones with no luck which is weird.

it can be a bit frustrating at times setting permissions for page functionality but once you've played around with it for a bit it gets easier.

The office uses Google Workspace or whatever it's called now for a lot of what we do so resistance is futile.  The bang for the buck is too good not to.  I could probably change up my search engine though.
