All about my favorite apps for multiple software categories. None of them is owned by "Big Tech" (big corporations like Google, Amazon, Facebook, Microsoft, Apple, Twitter, Zoom, etc.). It is (to me) not sustainable to feed billion/trillion-dollar companies whenever there are effective, more ethical (right to privacy and to freedom of expression) and less wealthy firms in the market. Empowering monopolies increases social inequalities and abuses of power.
