Hope you all are having a great Thanksgiving weekend! πŸ— November is ending and I'm back with my 11th product of the year, part of my commitment to make 12 cool products in 2019. πŸ—“ Nomoogle is a product I thought of a long time ago when I was tired of seeing Google's manipulative tactics everywhere. 😀 When I switched to using alternative services like DuckDuckGo πŸ¦† and Zoho Mail, I realized that they were actually quite great and I didn't miss Google as much as I thought I would. But I realized that the initial period of switching can be hard for people, and we want to just keep going back to Google. πŸƒπŸ»β€β™‚ We rely too much on it, and that's exactly why Google has come to control the web so dominantly. I don't think that's healthy, and so I want to urge everyone to reduce their overdependence on Google products. 🚫 I love the fact that companies like DDG and Apple are taking the fight to Google and speaking for the common folks' privacy. πŸ›‘ I have been very vocal about this issue for a while now and wanted to make a small contribution myself, so I made Nomoogle. 🐻 Nomoogle is a simple browser extension to help users avoid Google and break out of the habit of using Google as the default for everything, be it search or email. πŸ“₯ Here's what it can do: 1. Nomoogle will show you a popup and ask you to reconsider every time you try to access a Google product. 2. You can easily find alternatives to Google products with the help of Nomoogle with just one click. 3. Nomoogle also lets you browse the web in two special modes: Redirect Mode and Strict Mode. In Redirect Mode, you are just redirected to an alternative whenever you try to access a Google website, e.g. DuckDuckGo for search when you try to open Google Search. In Strict Mode, you will simply be blocked from accessing Google websites. Enable this for a hardcore Google fast. I hope you like this! Let me know your thoughts.
@sarthaksharma0 This is a great initiative. May I know how do you qualify alternative products for Google?
Distrust in Google is at an all time high, and for good reason. Netizens often default to Google for services when there are many other amazing services available on the web, be it email or search. With the help of Nomoogle, you can avoid this and decrease your dependence on Google products. If you're completely happy with relying on Google for everything on the web, that's okay. But if you're looking to change this, Nomoogle can help you achieve that!
