I made a thing! 🎉
https://github.com/nileshtrivedi/better

It's a browser extension that recommends "better" alternative products and services via in-page popups, based on community-curated lists. Available for all Chromium and Firefox-based browsers.

We live in times where the distributions costs are hampering the adoption of higher-quality (which could mean security, privacy, ethics, local etc) products. I am hoping that this extension can eventually be managed by orgs like IFF, EFF or FSF.

"Better" can be subjective. So, eventually, the users will be able to subscribe to multiple lists maintained by different communities using different parameters.

This is why I released early: To be able to attract more contributors. 😉

@nilesh technically mattermost and zulip are the analogues to slack.

matrix is an analogue to irc.

@icedquinn Yes, noted. Will definitely continue to improve the default list: https://github.com/nileshtrivedi/better/issues/7

I released early hoping to get more contributors. 😉

@nilesh @alcinnz It is missing alternative recommendations when visiting github.com
