I often get asked for tech tips: what search engine, what mobile device, what email program is best? There are so many tech options out there, it can be hard to choose the good ones. Good Reports changes that.

Below are my recommendations for genuinely good, helpful, non-toxic tools. These are not Big Tech products, which continually show a shocking lack of respect for users, communities, even democratic society. We need to get off Big Tech products, and onto these better tools.

Good Reports lists tech that works better for you. We're fully supported by users - not by ads or Big Tech funding - so if this site helps, please chip in. Thanks.
