  1. Picture has some mistakes:
    -DuckDuckGo is an american company and therefore forced to cooperate with the NSA.
    (another alternate search engine is ixquick but I dont know weather it is secure or not)
    -the new Opera version is based on Chrome, better use Iron, a project that tries to create a chrome browser without google spying
    -You need plugins like NoScript and ABP blocking Lists like EasyPrivacy and Antisoicial against tracking and deaktivate cookies.
    (For example Tor doesnt help you without this settings.)
    -Otr (Off-the-record) encryption for chats is missing
    -No Ubuntu Phone/Firefox OS for smartphones or linux in general for computers is mentioned.
