Goodbye, Chrome: Google’s web browser has become spy software

Our latest privacy experiment found Chrome ushered more than 11,000 tracker cookies into our browser — in a single week. Here’s why Firefox is better.

@moz You're probably right. But it's good that the mainstream media is informing about this now.


I have started to use Bromite browser on Android, it works great :)
For PC, I recommend Icecat or ABrowser.

@selea @privacytools Yes Chrome is crap but "tracking cookies" isn't really Chrome's fault. It's the fault of crappy Websites and lazy webdevs that include 50 3rd Party services in their site. I stead of using the Firefox setting you should checkout uBlock Origin + uMatrix + Decentraleyes + First Party Isolation. Mord advanced atuff but better protection.

@privacytools 👌 Have switched back to Firefox start of last year after it could copy all passwords into Firefox from your google account.

Switched to either & bling for searches so google cant offer Amazon what I search buy-able.

@privacytools Ironically the Washington Post itself is full of trackers...

@privacytools Is Brave Browser a good replacement for Chrome?
Or is firefox and tor browser better?

@TheGnuMaster @privacytools
Firefox/Tor is the better replacement. Chrome is a disaster for privacy. Personal data is sent to Google.

@privacytools I use alteenative derivatives of Firefox to avoid further contamination with their "funny" ideas about making money vs. privacy.
