Google Chrome has become surveillance software. It’s time to switch.

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.

Firefox is so naughties

by Anonymousreply 106/21/2019

This is frightening actually

by Anonymousreply 206/21/2019

Damn! Go to delete google chrome.

by Anonymousreply 306/21/2019

Just use an extension like Disconnect, which blocks trackers, and you'll be fine.

Why muricas love so much their privacy? With hackers and information everything that uses internet can be searched

by Anonymousreply 506/21/2019

R4, is that a safe add on?

by Anonymousreply 606/21/2019

Don't look at dirty things and stop trying to overthrow the government. And get off that daddy and son porn kick that you love so much. And stop saying DIE in a GREASE FIRE in a crowded theater. Make sure your dick pics are your OWN. Stop insulting OPRAH!! Melania is not a proven whore either. Call her slutty. And STOP calling everyone a russian agent.

Disconnect is safe and similar to Ghostery, referenced here.

Get back to us when you name is Muriel, R7. Till then, keep your rules to yourself, thank you.

r6 I've been using it for years and it has almost a million users with excellent reviews, ao I imagine it's safe, yes.

[quote]Disconnect lets you visualize and block the invisible websites that track you. Load the pages you go to 44% faster. Stop tracking by thousands of third-party sites.

[quote]Disconnect was named the best privacy tool by the New York Times (2016), Innovation Award winner for Best Privacy and Security software at South by Southwest (2015), listed as one of the 100 best innovations of the year by Popular Science and one of the 20 best Chrome extensions by Lifehacker.

Oprah I take it all back!!! I never meant to say you were a lesbian and that Gayle was your scissor sister !!!! I swear !!!

The worst I've ever said about Oprah is that she likes bread.

This lines up with what I've been noticing/suspecting for a while, and in fact I've just within the last week started making the switch from chrome to firefox.

For me, the privacy thing is less of a concern and I'm fine with a company taking my anonymized data and using it for research or whatever... [bold]IF THEY PAY ME FOR IT!![/bold] If my data is worth so much to companies like google that their entire business model is based upon collecting and analyzing it, then they can give me some money for being the one being exploited here. It's the same reason I always answer "NO" when some software or w/e wants me to opt into sending them performance data about their product. Bitch I just paid $120 for MS office, you can get my performance feedback when you give me the software for free.

by Anonymousreply 1306/21/2019

^ They DO pay you.

You use their services for "free."

Weird bump after almost a year, R14. What's your deal?

by Anonymousreply 1505/23/2020

I don’t care if they see if they see the dumb shit I search for

by Anonymousreply 1605/23/2020

I did a SEARCH on a topic before starting a new thread. That's my deal, r15.

Here is my issue. I put a cookie blocker on my Safari, a ton of sites wont let me use them without the cookies blocked. It's now an issue were I'm shut out from a lot of the internet without their cookie features. Yes, your search engine can be pure but once you enter into a website, the same issue occurs. I'm not confident that they can't travel this information as well. That article sounds like a add for FireFox. I prefer Duck Duck Go, you won't have to activate an anti-tracking feature, they simply don't do that at all.

by Anonymousreply 2005/24/2020

Thanks for the warning OP, but I'll continue to use Chrome and other Google applications. Hope they find anything gleaned from my online experience helpful. I have nothing to hide.

by Anonymousreply 2105/24/2020

I've used Firefox and Brave and other browsers but always keep coming back to Chrome.

by Anonymousreply 2205/25/2020

Well, somebody's gotta keep their eyes on the pixies.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
