While I agree that most of us should use #Firefox
instead of #Chrome
, the article's reasoning is flimsy: "Web sites and their advertising partners violate your privacy". I agree, Chrome is
slow to present any kind of defense against their violations (as are #Safari
, #Internet Explorer
, and Firefox) and all browsers are even slower to make those defenses the default. Remember when IE started sending "Do Not Track" by default and big name sites said they intended to ignore DNT? (DNT was the industry's "don't regulate us because we're doing something about user privacy" effort.)
by default, at least from third party sites? What browsers refuse location access? What browsers refuse to share screen information? What browsers block all third party cookies? What browsers block tracking pixels and social media icons? (None of them.)
Want a reason to choose Firefox instead? How about this one:
Chrome is removing functions that ad/script blocking extensions depend on; Firefox still has them. IE/Edge/Safari never had most of them to begin with.
From a #privacy
standpoint, this article is about on the same level as "drinking raw spinach oil cured my warts".
