Both currently are terrible.

How does this chrome add-on get installed in the first place?

So when running a Linux desktop, what does one do to avoid these search engines? I use DuckDuckGo for the moment, but if love some alternatve that isnopen source too, self hosted if need be, and federated would be awesome

[-] [email protected] 1 points 3 weeks ago* (last edited 3 weeks ago)

Searxng throws together results from different engines as far as I know.

Not sure how a federated search engine would work though.

Edit: hash0772 (is there a correct way address someone's username on Lemmy?) already mentioned this but it's generally best to use an existing instance, there's also some on tor. (they obviously still only search the clearnet)

You're just throwing together FOSS buzzwords at this point.

Well, yacy exists

Searx is pretty great, although I wouldn't recommend self-hosting it. Just use one of the public instances like Searx Belgium because it is harder to fingerprint you off of your searches since a lot of people also do their searches on the same instance.

Realistically SearXNG or Whoogle.

Ideally you would want to use yacy, but in my experience the results are just too bad to be able to use it

Midlevel management does this, not developers

[-] [email protected] 4 points 3 weeks ago

Yeah you can tell there are KPIs tied to bonuses causing this. Corporate culture is trash

Medieval management, aka serfdom

[-] [email protected] 4 points 3 weeks ago

I initially read that as medieval management and now I cannot read it any other way.

And this is the real game of monopoly, of course.

You know that scene in Who Framed Roger Rabbit where Donald and Daffy Duck are both playing the same song on individual pianos while trying to kill each other? Yeah.

The screenshot doesn't show it, but there's also an X in the top right of the screen.

This comment doesn't show it but this is a good time to uninstall your hard drive, throw in a new one, and install Linux

[-] [email protected] 1 points 3 weeks ago

This comment doesn't say it but it's a few months late.
