I had been hearing about this new browser more and more lately. I finally tried it out and it's working great. Super fast, no ads (except if you allow their ads in exchange for the crypto currency within), and comes with a tor browser. This could turn some tables. I should've dumped Firefox a long time ago. This video Sarah, from Health Wyze, made, pretty much convinced me.

Goodbye, Chrome: Google’s web browser has become spy software
http://www.washingtonpost.com/technology/2019/06/21/google-chrome-has-become-surveillance-software-its-time-switch/?noredirect=on&utm_source=reddit.com&utm_term=.79b6953b63e2





'You open your browser to look at the Web. Do you know who is looking back at you?

Over a recent week of Web surfing, I peered under the hood of Google Chrome and found it brought along a few thousand friends. Shopping, news and even government sites quietly tagged my browser to let ad and data companies ride shotgun while I clicked around the Web.

This was made possible by the Web’s biggest snoop of all: Google. Seen from the inside, its Chrome browser looks a lot like surveillance software. Lately I’ve been investigating the secret life of my data, running experiments to see what technology really gets up to under the cover of privacy policies that nobody reads. It turns out, having the world’s biggest advertising company make the most popular Web browser was about as smart as letting kids run a candy shop.

It made me decide to ditch Chrome for a new version of nonprofit Mozilla’s Firefox, which has default privacy protections. Switching involved less inconvenience than you might imagine.

My tests of Chrome vs. Firefox unearthed a personal data caper of absurd proportions. In a week of Web surfing on my desktop, I discovered 11,189 requests for tracker “cookies” that Chrome would have ushered right onto my computer but were automatically blocked by Firefox. These little files are the hooks that data firms, including Google itself, use to follow what websites you visit so they can build profiles of your interests, income and personality.

Chrome welcomed trackers even at websites you would think would be private. I watched Aetna and the Federal Student Aid website set cookies for Facebook and Google. They surreptitiously told the data giants every time I pulled up the insurance and loan service’s log-in pages.'

Still going amazingly more than a year later. I can't remember how long Firefox lasted back in the day, but this browser is my favorite of all time. I started with Netscape Navigator back in the mid 90's.

Aw c'mon. I think I made clear, I'm one of the few millennials that grew up before the internet and had to research actual physical book encyclopedias for writing school papers. I don't even consider myself a millennial, but the world says different....  :P

I played real dodgeball, rugby, and soccer as a baby goat  ;D
