(uM stats file)?
@Parnikkapore I keep the same tab open all day, and my uBlock Origin counter reached those numbers (I'm not smart enough to use uMatrix).
@DashEquals Try it with Pastebin. Make sure uBO is on.
I really want to see _those_ numbers
@Parnikkapore Try uMatrix on Pastebin? Here's my uBo results
How do you check how they tracked you?
I still use reddit but wasn't aware that they were that bad compared to other "social media".
uBlock origin gives you a count of blocked requests.
Thanks. I use it and shall keep s closer eye to what's blocked
@DashEquals чего? слежка в день? или чего?
Analytics APIs, ad servers, etc. This is a low estimate.
@DashEquals Not much of a surprise, given all the "proprietary" services you mentioned are explicitely free-of-charge for end users and get their funding from placing ads and tracking users. Choosing and paying for sustainably operated services seems a much better option here.
Totally agree. Mastodon is my only real social media and I'm very happy with it.
@DashEquals what's funkwhale?
@DashEquals thanks, I'll check it out!
Yeah, looks like a good project (prismo is also promising)
@DashEquals Nothing stops people from adding trackers to their instances, but at least I have the choice not to use those.
@DashEquals And thanks to this toot, I suddenly know about a thing called Funkwhale. Gonna check that out later.
No problem! Funkwhale is great!
@DashEquals I wish it were this simple
What do you mean?
@DashEquals getting people (in general) on board with the whole "all the stuff you use every day is bad" thing
@koenaro Ah, that's true. I still use many of those services, although I'm trying to switch over.
@rin pretty much.
