Barrierefreiheit einklagen: Das Verbandsklageprojekt des DSBV sucht Fälle "die ein positives Urteil erwarten lassen"

"Hierfür kommen Fälle in Frage, bei denen nicht nur die Zugänglichkeit oder Nutzbarkeit von öffentlichen Einrichtungen eingeschränkt oder verhindert, sondern darüber hinaus die Sicherheit von Menschen mit Behinderung bedroht wird. Ein Beispiel sind falsch verlegte Bodenindikatoren, die zu einer Gefährdung führen können."

Was hindert euch daran, solidarisch mit den Streikenden zu sein? Das ist eigentlich gar nicht so schwer.

I released a new version of my Firefox extension that will forcefully redirect you away from privacy erosive services to better alternatives. It started as a joke, but I end up actually using it.

When I want to look up a place, I instinctively and mechanically start typing "maps.googl...". This extension will instead take me to OpenStreetMaps. It will also functionally translate Google Search links to DuckDuckGo and Google Translate links to Deepl.

@switchingsocial @rugk @neb @andreipetcu Let's separate the two:

1. Crash reports (can contain sensitive data)
2. Telemetry (well documented, doesn't contain sensitive data firefox-source-docs.mozilla.or)

Crash reports get you to this window every time (notice how you can't decide to always send them). There's an easy way to turn them off in settings.

Telemetry doesn't contain sensitive data (and therefore is tucked away in about:config).

Just wanted to say, #Nextcloud supporting #ActivityPub is huge, because installing Nextcloud is way easy, you basically run a snap package and are done. So lots more folks can self-host!

Remember this, if you run #PureBrowser instead of Firefox and visit about:addons, and search for an addon, and it says "Only with Firefox—Get Firefox Now" you can click on "See all versions" and install the latest version even if you don't have the real Firefox. It's been working for me, for the add-ons I care about. I hope it works for you, too!
