create encrypted vaults
https://mhogomchungu.github.io/sirikali/SiriKali is a Qt/C++ GUI application that manages ecryptfs, cryfs, encfs, gocryptfs, fscrypt and securefs based encrypted folders. SiriKali can also connect to ssh servers using sshfs.
Rumble is a heck of a lot better than YT, but it is financed by or in partnership with Yahoo and Microsoft. Take advantage of it now, but prepare for what ever you post or comment to be used against you one day.

For search, I would include Searx - it’s a meta-search engine that does proxying and anonymization as well. Find a public instance, or host your own. As for twitter-alternatives, I think Pleroma deserves a spot. Much easier to setup than Mastodon, less bloat and very popular among people who are not woke commies ;) If you’re Japanese - or a weeb - there’s also Misskey. I think Funkwhale deserves a spot on the list as well; doesn’t fit into any of the categories I guess but it’s sortof a federated Spotify alternative, if that makes sense? I encourage you to try it - I have a public instance running if you want to take it for a spin.
Definitely need to put Pleroma on here.
Also; might be worth mentioning Matrix as an alternative to Discord/Telegram etc.
Almost all I use these days. I’ll add that too
Fairphone, and LineageOS
I’m using /e/ now. Lineageos works on more than just fairphone
Yandex is my favorite search engine
I use Yandex search more and more since the Russian-Ukraine war, but they are financed by an IsraEli and there were rumors of Yandex wanting to leave Russia - or, at least, parts of Yandex’s services.
I’ll check it out. Been pretty happy with brave search lately though.
