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.
@privacytools Was it not always spyware?
@moz You're probably right. But it's good that the mainstream media is informing about this now.
@privacytools Only if Firefox supported vaapi on Linux. 🤐
I have started to use Bromite browser on Android, it works great :)
For PC, I recommend Icecat or ABrowser.
@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 duckduckgo.com & 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?
@tyil @privacytools @smithy That is unfortunate. Everyone must still keep fighting.
Watching the things happening in #HongKong should make everyone realise how important Freedom is worth fighting for.
Look at the Hong Kong Youth, knowing they could be jailed for 10 years for so called "rioting", knowing that the PRC millitary could invade with/without the request of the HK government and slaughter them all.
That is why we shouldn't give up on basic rights just as Privacy, Freedom of Speech etc. because it is what matters the most.
@privacytools I use alteenative derivatives of Firefox to avoid further contamination with their "funny" ideas about making money vs. privacy.
@privacytools I'm so done with google stuff I have put custom ROMs on my android phones now(without gapps) and thank you for providing me many solutions for secure apps!
@privacytools What about Vivaldi?
For all practical purposes the Vivaldi source code is available for audit. It is Chromium + HTML/CSS/JS: https://help.vivaldi.com/article/is-vivaldi-open-source/
