Yes, it’s indeed much more freedom-friendly than, say, GitLab, which is is one 
of those wretched websites, that are not even _readable¹_ without running 
ad-hoc nonfree software, yet ironically widely believed to be a better 
alternative.

However, GitHub still imposes nonfree software on you at the moment of 
registration.  Due to its nature — it’s a CAPTCHA, that is it designed to be 
unavoidable, there hardly any solution exists.

¹ GitLab is actually even more miserable in that respect, than something like 
https://code.gov, which honestly shows you faceplate, informing you, that its 
developers were unable to create a proper web-interface.  GitLab, on the other 
hand, presents an _incomplete_ page without any notice, basically lying to an 
unaware visitor.
