This seems like a good place to ask.

Good replacements for google photos?

Last thing tying me to them besides email.

What…their browser recommendation doesn’t even include non-chromium browser like Firefox?

Gab? WTF???

Looks like it was written by a high schooler new to freelancing and trying to earn beer money. Poorly researched and poorly written with straight up wrong information.

I would recommend Filen over Nextcloud since Filen is E2EE.

I would also recommend nostr over Gab since nostr is censorship resistant.

Filen wasn’t very good. I tried it and their client was annoying. It refused to run in the background like a proper service and the GUI would pop up on every boot.

Filen is also just a file sync and backup service, not comparible to Nextcloud which has many more features.

I want to try Nextcloud next but I suspect it doesn’t have a background service for backups and syncing?

For calendar and contacts I use EteSync since it uses E2EE just like Filen. Nextcloud is good but it does not have E2EE as a supported feature. There is a broken E2EE plugin for Nextcloud but only for files.

The Filen client works fine for me on Linux. It runs in the background and does not pop up after boot.

Oh ok, interesting. Then it may have been me being stupid. Guess I should try it again…

Can you edit on the fly or a download, edit, re-upload situation?

Do you mean weather Filen desktop clients can sync folders between your computer and the cloud? The answer is yes you can. If it detects you edited a file in a watched folder, it will upload the file to the cloud.

The fact that Firefox isn’t listed as a browser alternative but Brave is throws any credibility that this article might have straight into the garbage.

Suggesting Brave anything throws its credibility into the shitter, much less multiple times in multiple categories.

There’s a lot of Brave plugging in the post, which is off to me. Also the post itself is super barebones. It doesn’t cover each suggestion in depth - it doesn’t even go through their whole list at the top - and it provides no guidance on actually switching. The “article” is more akin to a Buzzfeed list

It lists LibreWolf and IceCat which are FireFox forks.
