    This is the thing that took me from most recipes, because you're just strictly following a recipe, and since you have no idea about how it works, you cannot take care of any issue that may arise, and worse, you cannot actually learn to cook.

    You won't be able to improvise, or create recipes, which is imho the most interesting point about cooking.

    I tried degoogling my phone two years ago and still use it daily, degoogled.

    Most of my apps come from f-droid, and some come from Aurora too.

    For ebooks and PDFs, I use Librera (F-droid). My bank provides an app that doesn't require the GApps or the GPlayServices, and since I don't use any public transportation means, I don't need most "gmaps-bound" apps.

    I read the entire "Mother Keeper" manga, and started reading "Hero? I quit a long time ago", which I didn't particularly enjoy.

    The thing is, I don't have a lot of money to spare for that, so my best bet would be to find a linux-compatible SDK, maybe going through cydia

    TBF, not a lot of time, mainly because almost every website I used to regularly visit didn't use javascript (mainly small blogs and websites with good degraded design).

    I only have javascript allowed for a bunch of websites, citing gitlab, github, tildes, and some websites from my workplace.

    To be fair, banning that will probably do nothing. They already ignore the entire world's laws and usually don't pay the fines they receive.

    I exclusively use Firefox nowadays, especially for web development.

    I have pocket and remote fonts disabled in about:config, strict blocking enabled, smooth scrolling disabled, and every permission blocked. I also disabled DoH and DRM content support.

    I have duckduckgo as main search engine, and Mankier as search engine triggered by the man keyword.

    I use the calm pastel 4 theme, with the HeadingLinker (I made), ublock origin and umatrix extensions, disabling js by default.

    That's the point of the article, and most languages and template engines do provide an escape mechanism. For example, in PHP, the htmlspecialchars() function does a great job for escaping.
