Off the back of finding LibReddit only recently, I figured starting a thread on similar privacy focussed tools that either provide an alternative to, or a more private ways to access them.
Platforms like Reddit & Twitter used to be a lot lighter touch when it came to tracking, sign-in/signup walls etc. - they feel a lot more bloated, closed & the tracking seems more intrusive these days, so for casual use, privacy tools help see what’s going on without trading privacy.
(this thread overlaps a bit with Resources for online safety and security but a bit more of a basic Social Media privacy list)

I’ve linked to the Git Repos where possible as they contain a list of active instances.
