Remove Google Analytics
If you must have an analytics system, might I suggest either:
- Plausible: https://plausible.io (offers a 50%% discount for FOSS projects)
- Goatcounter: https://goatcounter.com
- Matomo: https://matomo.org
- Fathom: https://usefathom.org
These solutions are all well-tested and open-source. This, of course, means they
can be independently audited for privacy and security. Instead of using a proprietary
nonfree system such as Google Analytics, perhaps we could work together to replace
it with something slightly more ethical?
Furthermore, the majority of privacy features in evergreen browsers block Google
Analytics from being run. I can not say the same for solutions such as Plausible,
which suggests they are trusted for their privacy by independent persons.
If you need any more information, please contact me!
How would you feel about using an alternative to Google Analytics?
