Vivaldi - An Interesting Browser with Integrated Mail-Client

It has been a (very) long time since I last posted here, but now I’m back! This time I will write about Vivaldi, an interesting alternative to Google Chrome for privacy-aware users. Vivaldi uses the Chromium code base and features an integrated ad and tracker blocker. It is available for a variety of platforms, including Windows, macOS, Linux, Android and even iOS. Vivaldi also features an integrated e-mail client, which is useful in particular if you want to access a Gmail account not through a browser.

FreeTube - A Privacy-aware YouTube Desktop Client

I’ve been using NewPipe, a privacy-aware YouTube client for Android, for some time now and I’m quite happy and impressed by it. So I wondered if there was a Linux desktop client that could match NewPipe’s features. The answer is yes! With FreeTube there is an Electron-based client for Windows, Mac and Linux that allows you to access YouTube more privately. FreeTube allows you to manage channel subscriptions without the need for a Google account and you can easily import your existing YouTube subscriptions.
