I almost did it. well, I still use gmail, but it can be easily switched to my local email server. it works fine, just I use gmail to avoid publishing local mail.
I still use youtube, because javascript is not something I want to have on my server and I don't want to host gigabytes of video and stream them from paid VS.
I can add some search engines:
but I must add google searches a way better than all other search engines all together. this is just the fact. so sometimes I have to use google, anyway.

I usually search for very specific programming questions and no search engines usually find anything. and I don't use docker. I compile the whole system from sources and there's no python, or java or rust. so I'm very picky about the software, if searx written in C/C++ and can be built from sources, I'm ready to try it.

I've just checked. it's written in python. and I deleted python from my distributive 😀 so it's not a variant for me.
Riot (Matrix) for a more complete chat and collaboration platform/protocol. Mastodon instead of Twitter. Funkwhale instead of Spotify. PINE64 hardware such as PinePhone and PineBook Pro. BitWarden, KeePassXC or Password Store instead of 1Password. Etc.

amusing that in "getting free" from these companies, you also recommend tools that leech off of those companies' resources ( invidious, yalp store)

Thanks, a very wide range of options here 😍. And in the case of Android alternatives, what about LineageOS? And also, last time I checked, Yalp wasn't working but Aurora is 😁.
