as default, mozilla's #firefox is our preferred web browser, as it ain't freakin' Google (yet!)
NB. #seamonkey is also a great all-in-one web tool and #librewolf is now available as an AppImage.
For ease of use, we registered our email for Mozilla's #sync
function, to better store bookmarks and easily access web pages etc.
- Utilising Mozilla's #matrix
homeserver enables us to maintain secure and encrypted communications.
The benefits of using federated protocols hosted (at least for now) by recognised and trusted third-party providers, for us at least, far outweighs any of the perceived negativity or potential 'online risks' associated with not self-hosting our own services in-house.
- We do maintain 'in-house', a level of open autonomous technology, in that all our devices, platforms and operating systems function and operate only Free, Libre & Open Works.
that being said and in the interests of providing educational resource: Mozilla Corporation (mozilla.org) Terms of Service
The Matrix protocol is designed with your privacy and data sovereignty in mind. Because it is a decentralised, federated service with cryptographically-validated message integrity, there are a few important things to know before you use the Service. This Service is hosted and run by New Vector Ltd (trading as Element) on behalf of the Homeserver...Matrix Code of Conduct
This code of conduct outlines our expectations for participants within the Matrix community, as well as steps for reporting unacceptable behaviour.

in Matrix-speak that is Let's Conspire!
