The folks behind the Brave web browser announced this week that they’re adding a De-AMP feature that lets you circumvent pages that use Google’s Accelerated Mobile Pages. Now privacy-centric search engine and web browser maker DuckDuckGo has announced it’s doing the same for its web browsers and browser extensions.

In other tech news from around the web, rumors of a Google Pixel Watch have been making the rounds for years, but the latest leaks indicate a launch (or at least an official unveiling) could be imminent. Smartphone gaming accessory maker GameSir is crowdfunding a new controller with a built-in fan. And the folks behind the MNT Reform modular, open hardware laptop are also working on a pocket-sized version.

  2. DuckDuckGo now is now catering to western approved censorship, removing and downranking links for political or corporate reasons.

    Brave search is for now the only remaining true search engine.

    1. That you’ve heard of.
      There are a bunch of search engines and I really should be bookmarking them as it’s going to be increasingly relevant as censorship and gatekeeping continues to be more profitable the more companies do it, but in the end I think if people want to find controversial information, you know, on the off chance that our trusted sources could ever be wrong about something, people will need to store and host it themselves.
      I recommend self-hosting a Yacy node and/or Searx instance. Really, everyone ought to be self hosting as much as possible, but for some reason it’s legal for internet service providers to forbid people from hosting services or opening any ports on their home connections. Fortunately you can host tor hidden services without that. For now.
