hi guys, thanks for your feedback. this has been an issue for the past 7 years to be honest. here some trivia:
privacytools.io started with all tools on one page, it got too big and was separated by categories. It relaunched again last year with all tools on one page, got too big again and is now separated into several categories again. this time it's final, and all tools will be displayed on different pages. it helps a lot in getting more traffic to our website through search engines.
i totally agree thought that the current menu is completely overloaded. i've just combined and deleted a whole bunch of categories:
https://www.privacytools.io/privacy-email/ -> combined providers with email clients
https://www.privacytools.io/secure-password-manager/ -> combined pw with 2fa
https://www.privacytools.io/encrypted-dns-resolver/ -> combined resolvers and clients
https://www.privacytools.io/privacy-messaging/ -> combined messengers with tor, voip and team chats.
https://www.privacytools.io/android-alternatives/ -> combined android alternatives with android keyboards.
also added plenty of category captions in the sidebar to make it more user-friendly.
please let me know if u have further suggestions and how to combine content.
