    The new season of Hit-Monkey is really good, highly recommend it if you’re into a different type of animated series with a lot of action.

  2. Comment on DuckDuckGo seems like a significantly worse search engine than Google despite SEO bloat, and I think community discussions mislead people by omitting that in ~tech

    I've been using DuckDuckGo (DDG) more since 2015. Initially, the results weren't that great, so I would use the "!g" bang to go to Google. However, I rarely use that anymore.

    Nowadays, you have plenty of options for web searching. You can use tools like ChatGPT or Perplexity. DDG has significantly improved compared to a few years ago. Additionally, you can filter out a lot of the unnecessary results from Google by adding "&udm=14" to the URL, or even set up a redirect.

    For those interested in more control, you can self-host or use instances of SearXNG, which I find to be like searching on steroids. You can also integrate it with AI tools like OpenWeb-UI, Perplexica, or LibreChat.

    Firefox is the people's browser, crafted by a community for the benefit of users. On the other hand, Chrome is built by Google, primarily to generate profit and serve its shareholders. The irony is that Mozilla Firefox's biggest financial supporter is also its main competitor: Google. Thus, Firefox's largest source of funding comes from the very company it strives to compete against.
