leds->libre->desc As far as standards and protocols are concerned, the story of the Internet is one of free software. But its popularity and potential make big firms jealous.

alt->text1 @:meta.F aims to <a href="@:link.dio"> offer around thirty free alternative services</a> to provide a substitute for those services which, once they get hold of us, proceed to feed upon our data.<br /> But there are many other players working to de-google-ify Internet and many other such services.

It is therefore important to know who we are being asked to trust and what their software is doing with our data.
