Browse the web with ease and flair: https://seamonkey-project.org/ The Great, Original, Mozilla Browser! Keeping it real. Or, trying to.. Also check out https://palemoon.org/ which is also a very competent browser keeping the user in control.
Do so without trackers, viral pushers, and ads: I suggest the great general-purpose blocker uBlock Origin: https://github.com/gorhill/ublock Pair it with https://github.com/gorhill/umatrix to get full control over what or what not your browser connects to. uMatrix can basically replace noscipt, ghostery, request policy, and similar tools all in one. Working side by side with uBlock Origin it gives you a really good protection base line.

Speak freely using an open, secure, and free protocol: https://xmpp.org/ The best IM system for secure and federated communication.
Use movim as your social media platform: https://movim.eu/ “Because it isn’t facebook” should be reason enough, but it is actually a genuinely great experience. Built on top of XMPP!
Slight being the keyword here. For total privacy: download the web and surf offline!
